Know your people, know your people, know your people!

Part of Major’s company culture is to let our staff know that they are our biggest asset. We are constantly engaging our team with fun and engaging events, social outings and internal publications.

Taking inspiration of how we engage internally we have decided to create ‘Major Experiences’. These are light-hearted interviews with some of our employees, where they can describe themselves, their roles and what life at Major is really like.
