What we believe

Loving Work

We believe that loving work is essential for us to be happy. If we genuinely love what we do, it brings our other beliefs to life.

Caring Personally

Brilliant Teamwork

We believe that by collaborating closely and combining our strengths we will achieve incredible things that we could never achieve alone.

Being Brave

We believe in taking risks, being bold, and making quick decisions so that we can unleash our full potential. We are not afraid of failing because we know we will learn something that ultimately makes us stronger.

Taking Charge

We believe in taking ownership of everything we do and being fully responsible for achieving our goals and hitting our results.

Endless Curiosity

We believe that curiosity is the foundation of lifelong learning. We take every opportunity to learn, grow and enhance our strengths so that we can be happy and successful in life.

Speaking Up

We believe that we are a better, stronger business when every opinion is shared, every idea is considered, and every voice is heard.

Forward Thinking

We believe in setting ourselves ambitious goals that require us to think creatively and innovate boldly so that we create our future.

As expressed through our core beliefs, we thrive on cherishing individuality, celebrating success, and championing teamwork and collaboration at all times.

How Do We Do This

When we’re not hard at work, you’ll regularly find BrightLocallers taking part in a host of social activities like escape rooms, cocktail making, sailing, video gaming and scavenger hunts.

We love a having bite to eat and a drop to drink together, too, so we encourage plenty of team meals and social nights out on the town.

BrightLocal Social Life

Why do we do all this? First of all, we’re genuinely nice people! But it also just works: our team members deliver their best work when nurtured and supported, and we boast a staff retention rate that’s the envy of the industry.

We’re confident that in BrightLocal, not only will you find a caring, cooperative company that offers inspiration and challenge in equal measure, you’ll likely find friends for life.

BrightLocal HQ is located in Brighton, UK. This is the nerve center of our operations, and where the big decisions get made.

Our Brighton office is just minutes away from the famous seafront and Palace Pier, and sits opposite Brighton Dome, the cultural home of art and performance in the area (if you’re not counting the array of street art Brighton’s known for, that is).

Whether you’re looking for peaceful walks on the beach or a buzzing nightlife, Brighton is a great place to live, and work, especially in the burgeoning tech sector. They don’t call it ‘Silicon Beach’ for nothing!
