Why us?

Our workplace changes everyday. Internal and external influences make it happen. Nothing is concrete.

However, what doesn't change is the camaraderie. We all really care about one another and the work we do. We know, cheesy 🧀, but it is true..

Throughout the last 30 years, the company has made it through 3 recessions and other adverse world events. And then came 2020 and just like everyone else, we adapted to a new world of work. It was difficult, of course it was, but we've come out the other side as such a strong team. We wouldn’t be where we are today without our incredible team of individuals.
We’re always looking for the right people to join us.

Life in Reading

We’re pleased to call Reading home. Our office is based in the heart of Reading – a town on its way to become the UK’s fastest growing economy.

Reading has a thriving business scene. It’s called the “UK’s Silicon Valley” for good reason: it has the highest density of digital tech businesses in UK. That’s seven times the national average. Giants like Microsoft and Oracle have headquarters here. It’s also an inspirational base for diverse cultures, a repository of English heritage and architecture, and a lovely location for good food, great times, and plenty of relaxation. Here is what our team loves most about the area. 

Being part of the team

People join Wade Macdonald for our reputation, and they stay for the work environment and people. We have a brilliant workforce (and that's by no means exaggerating) and we don't mind bragging about it. The team is made up of a great bunch of individuals. Everyone is comfortable in their own skin and celebrated for their different interests and lifestyles.

          • Events & other social aspects:
          • > Quarter end celebrations and outings including a big Christmas party to round off the year
            > Monthly and quarterly recognition awards i.e. employee nominated person of the month, high achievers
            > Weekly social events i.e. pub quizzes and drinks after work
            > In-house bar and games room; Pool, Ping-Pong, Darts etc.

  • Amazing place to work! Would come back in a heartbeat!

    The culture of this place is amazing, very supportive and fun. If you have any previous experience as an Recruitment Consultant, you probably know how horribly pressured and only money oriented it can be. Wade Macdonald is completely not like that. Sure, KPIs are important and you need to bring some good income, but they are there to help you and to celebrate your successes! I have now moved from recruitment to HR, but if I would consider going back to that career at any point, Wade Macdonald would be a place to go. Amazing friends and good money as well.

    Amazing place to work! Would come back in a heartbeat!
