Is Bamboo Nine Right For You?


Here at Bamboo Nine it is no coincidence that our staff turnover is so low. We truly care about our company culture, putting a strong emphasis on work life balance and employee happiness both from a work and social perspective.


Whether you are the kind of person who enjoys sampling one of Brighton’s amazing pubs or restaurants during an extended Friday lunch break, and who relishes the idea of regular team socials including both Christmas and Summer parties. Or, if sitting on the balcony overlooking the sea front, enjoying a slice of home baked cake with an artisan tea, all whilst giving Eva the office dog a stroke is more your style. There truly is something to make you feel happy at work.


From a career perspective we also have you covered. You will get the opportunity to hone your skills on large, exciting client accounts whilst working with some of the brightest minds in the industry, while simultaneously being given all the tools you need to help you progress as far as your ambition desires.

So really only one question remains... what are you waiting for?

Thank You
