We're a culture first company, and enjoy an active calendar of both company and team organised events! Making the most of our London location we have regular company socials which usually involve dinner, an activity (darts, shuffleboard, bowling, etc) and drinks. We have a team bouldering club 🧗, a poker club ♠️, a slow cooker society 🍲, running club (aka Zinc Zoomers!) 🏃 and regular board games!
The big event in the Zinc calendar for team bonding is our annual retreat ✈️: in 2022 we went to Tuscany, Italy 🇮🇹 and for 2024 we're off to Bergerac in France 🇫🇷 we've got seats on the plane saved for our new joiners!
Zinc is a company built on transparency, empowerment and data ownership.
We recently redefined our company values: Life at Zinc is: Focused, Empowered and Trusted.
