Hello. We’re Raconteur, nice to meet you

Raconteur exists to help business leaders make better decisions by challenging and inspiring them through leading editorial.

Through our market-leading special reports in The Times and The Sunday Times, and our online publishing platforms, we are uniquely placed to help brands get in front of the audience that matters.

Now over 65 people strong, we’re headquartered in a spacious modern open plan office in Aldgate, London, and have ambitious further growth plans ahead of us.

When it comes to people, we don’t just talk a good game. In 2019 we won the AOP award for ‘Employer Excellence’, recognising the work we put into employee engagement, wellbeing, CSR and diversity and inclusion initiatives.

If the above sounds exciting, we’d love to hear from you!

At Raconteur we care about what our employees think, which is why we’ve teamed up with Peakon to regularly check how we are doing.

Peakon is an anonymous employee feedback platform. It measures the engagement of each employee on an individual level, as well as on a team and company wide level.

Everyone who works here helps to shape Raconteur with their ideas and feedback, which is used to steer positive changes, as well as celebrate what we’re doing well.

We currently have a Peakon score of 9/10, putting us in the top 5% of companies in our industry.

All Raconteur employees receive mental wellbeing training from Mind, the mental health charity.

In 2018 we signed the Time to Change Employer Pledge in order to demonstrate our commitment to change how the world thinks and acts about mental health in the workplace, and make sure that employees who are facing these problems feel supported.

Raconteur has an internal team of Mental Wellbeing Champions, who act as a point of support for our staff and organise regular activities to stimulate good mental health.
