Our Culture

Work hard, play hard, relax...

Life at Dorset Software brings with it many benefits, both day-to-day and long term. Here’s a few of the key perks of life with us on England's sunny south coast.

Work Life Balance

Our employees' well-being is really important to us. We don’t believe in working long hours and operate a system of flexi-time. This means that everyone works core hours, but outside of this you are free to start and leave when you please. Our core hours are shorter on a Friday, allowing you an early start to the weekend.

We have a generous and flexible holiday allowance of 25 days per annum, plus 8 bank holidays.

Social Life

There’s no shortage of ways to socialise and make friends when you join Dorset Software.

We have a number of sporting groups on the go, many funded by the company. There's also a busy social agenda organised by members of staff, including the regular Friday night visit to the pub. We make the most of our fantastic coastal location with activities such as rock climbing, beach barbecues and boat parties.

The company also arranges two big parties every year, which are a great opportunity to mix with colleagues, friends and families.

Office Life

We firmly believe that our staff deserve to be happy and comfortable while they work. Our office dress code is relaxed, just like the atmosphere.

A range of drinks is available free of charge, including tea, coffee and fruit juices. In addition, we have a very well-stocked chocolate biscuit cupboard. And, for the health-conscious, we offer daily fresh fruit.

We have a relaxing common room for lunch breaks, where you can either lounge on the sofa or join in the daily crossword challenge.


We offer a competitive starting salary with regular reviews. We operate a fully transparent, meritocratic system where achievements are recognised and rewarded.


All employees are automatically enrolled onto the Company pension scheme when they have completed three months’ continuous service. The contribution from Dorset Software increases in line with length of service and employee contribution.
