Careers at Buckinghamshire Business First

At Buckinghamshire Business First, we ensure that businesses have access to the best advice, resources and opportunities that enable them to invest, grow and thrive, ultimately supporting the growth of our local economy.

Our people are essential to making that mission a reality and we are proud to have so many talented employees from a variety of backgrounds, and who work from locations across the country.

Our values

Our company values define who we are, how we act, and how we wish to inspire others to be. They are the standards to which we hold ourselves accountable and by which others can judge us.

We seek applications from all corners of society; treat people with respect, honesty, dignity and fairness; help our staff achieve their full potential and career goals; and make everyone feel part of our family.

We want to be a high-performing professional organisation that our employees, clients and customers feel proud to be associated with.

Integrity and fairness

Integrity and fairness

We behave with integrity and treat each other as equals. We appreciate and recognise every individual’s strengths.

We strive to ensure our talents and resources are used wisely.

Making a difference

Making a difference

We pursue our mission with passion and enthusiasm and we make a real difference to the people, businesses and communities that we serve.

We maintain the respect and confidence of our funders and stakeholders.

Employee benefits - how we take care of our team

As a champion and voice for local business, we have to do more than talk a good game. As an employer, we have to set a great example.

Our staff benefits reward achievement, support wellness, and strike the right balance between work and play.

Annual holidays

25 days per year, plus bank holidays (pro-rata for part-time staff). We appreciate that time off is important for your wellbeing, so we actively encourage you to book and use all of your holiday time.

Extra holiday for long-serving staff

An additional week’s holiday after ten years' service, and a further week after 20 years' service.

Holiday purchase scheme

Buy up to one week of additional holiday - whether you have caring responsibilities or just want to enjoy more R&R, these extra days can help you maintain a healthy work/life balance.

After almost 20 years of working for the company, it just feels like I am spending each working day with an extended family.

Health & Wellbeing

The wellbeing and good mental and physical health of our team is paramount.

Wellbeing Ambassadors: We have a group of Wellbeing Ambassadors – drawn from the wider team – who can offer support to all employees in a kind and confidential manner. These ambassadors also act as ‘buddies’ for new starters to help ease them into their role, and host regular virtual catch-ups to bring team members together for a natter around the virtual ‘water cooler’.

Health Cash Plan: We provide our employees with access to a HealthShield plan that helps to cover the costs of everyday healthcare, such as trips to the dentist or opticians, and so much more across different membership levels.

Flexibility of remote working

All of our staff work from home and we have embraced the ‘remote first’ opportunities. We will provide you with a work laptop and other equipment (such as a desk, office chair, mouse, keyboard and laptop stand, if required) to help you work comfortably. What we ask of you is that you have a fast and reliable broadband connection and a quiet space to work and take calls.

The best things about working for BBF are the flexibility, the strong sense of being part of a team, and the pride people take in their work.

Working through Microsoft Teams

As a fully remote company, we live on Microsoft Teams. We make use of the chat, video calling, and shared meeting features, which help to mimic an 'open office' feel. Teams have regular 'huddles' and each individual has the opportunity of a weekly (as a minimum) one-to-one with their manager.

Pension scheme

We will contribute 10% of your basic salary into a pension scheme for you. This is a non-contributory scheme - you don’t need to contribute anything to receive this. We will also pay four times your basic salary to your nominated beneficiary in the event of your death whilst still employed by us.

Bonus scheme

Our team members are eligible to earn up to 10% of their basic salary via an annual bonus scheme. The amount received is dependent on company performance and your own individual performance.

BBF is a great place to work. I feel like part of a large family who understand the ups and downs of real life and where everyone supports one another.

Company fun days

Twice a year, the whole team comes together in person for a creative and enjoyable day of activities. These are optional, but everyone is welcome.

Book and streaming clubs

We have an active book club and streaming club, and support the setting up of other clubs to ensure team members can interact and bond over shared interests.

It’s great to work for an organisation that puts so much emphasis on its people, and the support given in the toughest of personal moments. This is not universal among employers, so great to have that here.

Employee recognition voucher scheme

We are signed up to an employee recognition scheme that enables team members to thank, praise and reward their colleagues for their efforts. This is in the form of a star, which can be converted into a voucher to spend at a wide selection of retailers, dining options, charities, and other websites.

Refer a Friend Scheme

We believe our employees are the best advocates for us as an employer. We pay a ‘finder’s fee’ to any member of the team who introduces a new employee to our organisation who completes a three-month ‘probation’ period.

Love the overall atmosphere of working for BBF and the support everybody is willing to offer. The flexibility and trust that the company has for its staff is something I've never experienced before.

Our accreditations & commitments

We endeavour to 'walk the talk' on corporate social responsibility and create a best in-class work environment. We push to achieve business accreditations that not only prove our commitment to excellence, but push us to raise our standards even higher.

With each of our accreditations, commitments and achievements, we encourage other businesses and organisations to pursue them too.

Armed Forces Covenant signatory

We are committed to treating those who serve or have served in the armed forces, and their families, fairly.


Gold CSR Excellence Awards

We have been awarded the Gold UK and Gold International CSR Excellence Awards in recognition of our efforts to have a positive impact, not only on businesses, but on people, communities, charities and the environment.


Disability Confident Employer

This is a public commitment to support employees who may have a disability, and to ensure our recruitment process is accessible and supportive for all, regardless of disability, ill health, or other challenges. We share good practice with other employers and encourage them to become Disability Confident.


Heart of Bucks Community Investor

Membership of the Heart of Bucks Community Investor scheme recognises our commitment to, and support of, local charities and communities within Buckinghamshire.


Our Climate Commitment and Net Zero pledge

We have made a Climate Commitment, recognised by the United Nations Race to Zero campaign, to help fight climate change by halving our greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and achieving net zero carbon emissions by 2050. Our Net Zero Ngage programme encourages businesses to reduce their emissions and pursue a healthier future for all.

Real Living Wage Employer

The Real Living Wage is higher than the government’s minimum or National Living Wage and is based on the actual cost of living. We believe that a good day’s work deserves a fair day’s pay.


Prompt Payment Code signatory

When invoices are not paid on time, businesses (particularly small ones) really suffer. We are committed to paying our suppliers promptly - and encourage other organisations to do likewise.


Cyber Essentials accreditation

With our Cyber Essentials accreditation, we demonstrate to our employees, the businesses we support, and our suppliers that we can be trusted with their data and have robust cyber security practices in place.


Champion of Paralympic heritage

We are part of the National Paralympic Heritage Trust's DICE Club, which promotes the four Paralympic virtues: Determination, Inspiration, Courage and Equality (hence DICE!).


Good Business Charter signatory

The charter consists of 10 components, including: a fair approach to zero or minimal hours contracts; policies that support employee wellbeing; engaging with worker representatives; monitoring the diversity of our workforce; closing gender, disability, ethnicity, and CEO/worker pay gaps; paying our taxes and not engaging in tax avoidance; monitoring customer feedback; abiding by the standards in the Ethical Trading Initiative Base Code.
