Sounds exciting? Let’s try and put you off!

Working at MetaCompliance is not everyone’s cup of tea. We believe that to create product with personality and impact you must strive harder and push boundaries. We want our people to do the same.

​No vanilla here!

As an ambitious private-equity backed technology leader we are scaling our organisation at pace whilst delivering quality solutions. That leads to meaningful challenges. Our teams accept these challenges as a part of the journey and thrive on the energy. We won’t get everything right, so you’ll need to be flexible and resilient as we navigate our path as a team.

We're directly competing against the biggest player in the Security Awareness Training market – a huge, publicly listed, American company. They have more money and more people, so we need to work harder, be smarter, more nimble and take more risks to have impact. Think David vs Goliath

Why you will love it here!

  • We invest in your career! Your personal growth and development are at the core of how we operate. With the chance to work with an international team and a globally recognised brand.
