Working with Block

Our success relies on creating a fun working environment, with a culture that encourages every individual to make a real personal difference through hard work, developing natural talents, building strong relationships, and a determination always to inspire the best in ourselves and our colleagues.

We have a shared passion to unlock potential in our staff, our customers and our partners. We are motivated not by the mediocre, but by going beyond the norm, pushing the boundaries of what convention says is possible, to deliver outcomes that surpass expectation.

We succeed as one team with shared values, and celebrate the unique contribution of each individual. So while every job description needs its bullets and its summaries, rest assured that our focus is always to understand the individual, and create an environment where each team member can express themselves, have fun, achieve their aspirations, and build long-term, fulfilling careers that contribute to mutual success.

Training & Development

Block provides employees with both the environment and the investment to take their careers to the next level, through individually tailored learning and development plans that include both internal and external training and coaching.

The kind of people we like to work with have big aspirations. Block’s Career & Personal Development Plan, combined with the quality of engagements, clients and partners we work with, helps each team member to develop and progress through an ambitious career path to achieve their personal goals. Here’s a snapshot of what the plan aims to achieve:

  • Open, transparent and ambitious career path for all employees.
  • Formal and informal opportunities for contribution in company strategy and development to all members of staff on a regular basis – fostering an ‘inclusive’ culture.
  • Competitive remuneration for all staff and aim to maximise work/life balance within operating constraints.
  • Development for each individual through a personal learning and training plan in line with their career aspirations and progression within the business, moderated through an appraisal scheme.
  • Provide and fund excellent formal and informal training and learning opportunities, including formal qualifications, as part of these individual plans.

Block Academy

The Block Apprentice Scheme, partnered by QA, provides a unique opportunity to combine great training with real world experience. The Scheme allows the future generation to be part of an exciting Company with a great culture from day one, gaining invaluable exposure and opportunities throughout.

Here at Block, we’re looking for great people who have a natural flair and passion for IT.  Block Apprentices will deliver customer support to business partners and end users, responding to people’s technical problems by email and telephone, as well as helping to set up new systems.  They may also have the opportunity to carry out some activities at client site.

We’re always keen to hear from enthusiastic people who are looking to make a difference, and if this is something you or somebody else is interested in, then we would love to hear from you.

  • Block provides the freedom to think outside the box, welcomes new ideas and embraces change. This makes it for me, one of the most exciting places that I have worked at over the last 15 years.

  • After completing my A-Levels, I wasn’t sure I wanted to go to university like everyone else and Block has been great at allowing me to learn while on the job. I am currently studying for my Prince 2 qualifications, supported by Block and can see a clear career path ahead of me here in the PMO.

  • Since I have been working at Block, I have significantly developed my skill-set and improved my knowledge immensely. I have got the chance to work with brand new technologies, supported by a wide variety of internal and vendor lead training with access to a wealth of training material.

  • I can honestly say that I have never worked with better people in the whole of my career. The guys who operate in the implementation team delivering complex data centre, security and borderless networks are the best I have ever had the pleasure to work alongside. They are not only technically brilliant, they are conscientious, passionate and very hard working and I count myself lucky to be able to work with them.
