There's no such thing as a typical C Spacer. What C Spacers thrive on is a growth mindset. We're a growing, always-changing business, often reinventing ourselves to keep pace with the fast-changing world of our clients. So we're looking for people who are excited about change and who challenge the status quo. We need people who share our passion for the role customers can play in solving business problems - people who want to disrupt the way things traditionally have been done.

We're focused on building a learning culture where it's safe to experiment, take risks and do things differently. That means we need people who aren't afraid to speak up and share an alternative perspective yet are humble and self-aware enough to admit they don't know everything. Collaborators, self-starters, creative problem-solvers.

We're always challenging ourselves to be better, more human, more impactful. 20 years since launch, we still think of our business as a 'work in progress' where we're focused on getting better every day. If you share that philosophy when you think about your own personal development, we might be a good match.
