Life at TDS
We encourage curiosity, reward those who challenge the status quo and place colleagues at the centre of everything we do.
We celebrate diversity. Because different people, with different perspectives make TDS a better business. Our customers are diverse, so we should be, too. We want you to fully embrace being yourself. Whoever you are. Wherever you’re from.
Our success goes hand in hand with having a strong culture. The below set out the experience of everyone who works here:
We are extremely proud of our open and honest two-way communication. We ensure that everyone has the opportunity to voice their ideas and know that they’ll be heard.
Our flat structure and open plan office allow fast and efficient communication flow at all levels.
Our inclusive, open-minded and respectful environment ensures we support colleagues in achieving their career goals and in driving change.
Our Diversity; Fundraising; Colleague Consultation Forum; Giving Something Back; and Wellbeing working groups help create a great working environment.
You’ll be seen as an individual; valued and recognised for who and what you are.
Our colleague recognition scheme puts the power in colleagues’ hands to recognise and reward each other for the work they are doing.
Having fun and spending time with colleagues is encouraged; it makes life more enjoyable. There are many ways in which we foster fun, from competitions to social events.
Our modern offices, snack bar, on-site cafe, and easy to reach food outlets make TDS even better.
Our values are the things we hold most important that define how we do what we do. Our values were created by and for our colleagues.
If we all take pride in TDS's values, we'll all be working together towards the same goals - collaboration makes for a much stronger team. Each year we carry out regular all-colleague surveys.
We ask our colleagues to tell us where we're strong and where we need to improve.
"We treat customers as individuals and not as a number "
"We give impartial advice, making fair and independent decisions"

Life at TDS
George, Credit Controller
Since starting my role at TDS, I have felt respected and supported by not just my team, but the whole company. TDS have helped me grow as an individual and as a professional. I was accepted onto the mentoring programme and have been given the opportunity to work alongside the company accountant and deputy CEO. I cannot thank TDS enough for granting me the chance to establish myself in this great company.
