WHAT WE DO FOR OUR PEOPLE
We have a very fun and very dedicated team who are always busy bringing the party and vibes at BOXPARK. Our ‘BOXPARTY’ committee ensures everyone is both working and playing hard, whether it be ‘lunch and learn’ sessions, team building activities, team drinks, or full-on parties with all the glitz and glamour. Everyone needs to have fun!
At each of our sites and our Head Office we have nominated Wellbeing Champions. They undergo a range of training, including Mental Health First Aid qualifications, to ensure they are well-prepared to work with their colleagues to make BOXPARK a happy and healthy place to work. Hear a little more about what it means from one of our Wellbeing Champions:
'As a BOXPARK Wellbeing Champion, I'm here for my colleagues to talk to at any time about things they may be struggling with. We've had a lot of coaching to ensure we know what to do - it isn't always about trying to solve people's problems. It's about being an approachable, friendly and confidential ear for people who may be struggling but feel they don't want to make a fuss. And as a group, we spend time discussing how we can improve our workspace and our culture to make it as welcoming and healthy as possible.' Lewis Curtis - BOXPARK Head Office
We love to work out at BOXPARK! From football to rugby and running to cycling, we do it all. We encourage fitness both during and outside the working hours with our weekly lunchtime Run Club and evening football matches. We also offer the Cycle To Work Scheme and discounted gym memberships for our team.
If you want to be part of a fast-growing, dynamic and crazy passionate team, you’re in the right place. We have lots of exiting career opportunities across the organisation and are looking for the right people to join us and help us fulfil our mission of bringing communities together with food, drink and entertainment under one roof!
What we do for the the wider community
We act as incubators for small and independent food businesses. Our pop-up kitchen is a space open to emerging food businesses who want to experience operating in a busy and exciting environment. We partnered with StartUp Croydon in 2022 to launch a campaign to give local early stage food entrepreneurs an opportunity to take their street food concept to the next level with a FREE three-month pop-up kitchen.
Free Community Events
We host over 1,500 events per year across our venues; most of which are free and accessible to everyone in our local communities. Our event programme is rich in diversity and culture, as we strive to provide entertainment for underrepresented and minority groups. We were the official after party venue for Croydon PrideFest in 2023 and collaborated with Club Soda to provide access to music and arts for people with learning disabilities.
The Black & Brilliant List:
We launched an initiative entitled ‘The Black & Brilliant List 2023’ – a campaign to recognise and champion a community of emerging Black creators across food, fashion, arts & culture, entertainment, sports and music. As part of this, we have created a pledge to demonstrate our support without words by investing up to £20,000 in 12 Black British trailblazers in the creative industries who we will help to achieve their ambitions in 2023. The first six Black creators will be showcasing their talent and work this year!
We have been home to the best street food and retail offerings over many years. We have food from all corners of the globe, exciting retailers offering everything from homemade Africa inspired clothing to skateboards and art.
