Working alongside our team

Having a diverse team of technical professionals is a significant advantage for any organisation. It allows for a more comprehensive understanding of compliance, as well as a more well-rounded approach to compliance management. With individuals who have specialised knowledge in areas such as data protection, fire safety, electrical, gas or environmental compliance, our team can take a more targeted approach to identifying potential risks and implementing effective compliance measures.

What do we do

Although we do have a Head Office based in Kent Clear is a remote-first company. Our team utilise our office, based on a campus just outside the beautiful medieval town of Sandwich, regularly for technical sessions, workshops and training. However, everyone in the team works hard to create a supportive and progressive culture which helps everyone be close to the heart of the Clear journey, regardless of their geographical location.
