Our Values

It’s a blend, an essence, an intangible culture thing that makes us distinct.

Honesty, respect, integrity etc

It’s just what you’d expect really, perhaps it doesn’t need saying, but these things are fundamental and just things we expect from people and what we’ll always give you back.

We’re spirited

Whatever the undertaking we always commit to it with energy, enthusiasm and determination. Call it ‘can do’ or simply just rolling our sleeves up.

We’re adventurous

It’s not about being totally carefree or foolhardy, but understanding that when our people try something new, or explore new ideas or ways of doing things we’ll be there to support them.

We’re fulfilling

We recognise potential. It’s not about where you are but where you have the desire to go. We believe in helping our people to be satisfied and happy through allowing their character and abilities to develop fully and take flight.

We’re supportive

Our people know that we have their back. Trust means we give them the freedom to make judgement calls based on their knowledge, skills, experience and wisdom - something that goes beyond simple collaboration.

We’re progressive

The world we work in is fast moving and full of change - at Daemon we embrace that change and innovation and encourage our people to be bold and do their best to harness that power.
