What to expect at Save the Student:
We’re an experienced and sociable team making digital waves from a 60-foot yacht, safely moored in a vibrant dock just 30 seconds from a DLR station.
Our office motto is “work like a captain, play like a pirate” – but we promise the boat-related puns end there (although probably not).
The office space is open-plan on the first deck, mid-deck is home to a games/TV area, ping-pong table, kitchen and lounge… and then there’s the roof terrace, which comes with some amazing views!
Fridays mean Deliveroo lunches and beers/gins, and every month the whole team takes half a day off to do something fun in London!
