Working at NKD

NKD is a place where talented people who care create great work everyday.

We’re passionate about employee engagement, client experience and brand cultures. We combine our expertise in strategic consulting, learning and development and creative communications to shift thinking, change behaviour and transform performance for brands and businesses. 

We specialise in helping clients identify their unique people challenges. Our success is built on delivering practical and engaging people solutions that actually make a difference.

It all starts with our 4C behaviours
driving our culture

  • Connect Easily

    We’re all about getting on the same page. We welcome questions. We listen. We share knowledge, kindness and we do it all with respect and empathy. At NKD we embrace difference because, whatever our experience or perspective, understanding grows with every connection.

  • Create Incredible Work

    Our belief in each other energises our work. We create space and opportunities for people to be courageous and vulnerable, learn from mistakes and develop their potential so we can do hard things well, together. And we don’t forget to say thank you.

  • Care Passionately

    We all take responsibility for making ours a culture that cares. We love how we sound when our voices make a positive impact whether that’s speaking solutions, inviting feedback, championing others and challenging non-inclusive behaviours. Our voices are diverse, and we care what everyone has to say.

  • Inspire Confidence

    We take pride in our work and each other. We’re reflective, inclusive and reliable and we’re able to overcome challenges and share thoughts and feedback because we feel safe and supported. Confidence grows with trust – that’s why we always do what we say we will. 


Our Culture Teams

We have six employee-led Culture Teams at NKD who help drive forward initiatives, conversations and promote activities, events and schemes on important topics that contribute to the culture at NKD.

  • Kind

    Kindness is more than our behaviours inside NKD – it’s our actions outside too. That’s why our Kind team provides volunteering opportunities, fundraises and promotes awareness of charities and issues that affect our global community.

  • Growth

    We inspire every one of our team to thrive. We encourage everyone to take ownership of personal development and our Growth team provides exciting opportunities to support learning, from showcases and masterclasses to companywide development days.

  • Green

    We champion a sustainable mindset for our solutions and clients. The Green team provides opportunities to get involved in environmental initiatives and scrutinises our internal processes to ensure we’re living our sustainable values, every day.

  • DEIB

    We believe that diversity, equity, inclusion and belonging are achieved through honest review, ongoing reflection and recognition of privilege. We introduce initiatives that create psychological safety for everyone and evolve our strategy to make sure it works across all aspects of our culture. Our Diversity Equity Inclusion Belonging team drives our strategy and provides guidance for DEIB questions and issues.

  • Celebrate

    NKD is a family and families make time for each other, which is why we enjoy socialising and celebrating together! Successes, milestones, birthdays – we acknowledge the life events that matter to you.  

  • Beat

    We practice what we preach. The Beat team makes our employee experience the best it can be. Whether it’s facilitating our listening channels, the Beatnic survey encouraging staff feedback, or the safe sharing of insights and feedback at work, we create space for NKD staff to talk and be heard.


NKD, part of the ITA Group, is 100% employee-owned. This means every employee is an owner of the business and will be enrolled in the Employee Stock Ownership Programme (ESOP) – meaning we all share in the success of the Group. Being an ESOP company drives a special culture where everyone acts like an owner and feels personally accountable for the part they play in making the world of work better for NKD, our clients and their customers.

As well as the community and high-performing spirit this creates, it also provides an additional financial benefit for our people. Annually, as part of the ITA Group ESOP, NKD will make a financial contribution on behalf of every eligible employee through an additional pension contribution.

Other benefits include monthly team lunches, private health care, socials, hybrid working, and more. Plus we wouldn’t be a learning and development agency if we didn’t include a ton of development opportunities – check out the full list here.
