We are based in the heart of beautiful Leamington Spa an 8 minute stroll from the station and within easy reach of the shops, cafes, restaurants and open spaces of the town. Leamington is an easy direct train journey from London (1hr 15mins) and Birmingham (30 mins) and we also have free parking on site.

Zipabout is following government guidance and currently all staff are working from home with a weekly catch-up in the office. We hope that this will change, and that we can see more of each other as a team in the future, but for the time being the role can be largely executed remotely.

It is likely that we will continue to support a mix of WFH and office based work when restrictions allow, however there will still be a requirement to come to the office roughly 2 days per week.

If you think you're who we're looking for, drop us a line and let's have coffee (in person or virtually).

But please don't just send us a CV....
