What it feels like to work
at the AC
At the AC, we believe that the heart of our workplace is our people, and it’s crucial to us that everyone experiences an environment that’s supportive, fulfilling, and aligned with our core values. When you join our team, you become part of something special.
If these values resonate with you, we invite you to consider becoming a part of our close-knit team. We’re excited to welcome individuals who share our passion for making a difference and working together to achieve great things. Join us in creating a workplace where you can truly thrive, both personally and professionally.
Our team’s shared experiences have revealed five core values that define our work culture:
Prior to working at The AC, I had worked in places where their business ‘values’ didn’t align with the way the team was treated. They were toxic environments that felt like a battle for your opinion to be taken seriously, or to be paid a fair wage for your skill set.
Joining The AC felt like I had finally met my people. Working relationships built on mutual respect, kindness and encouragement. They gave me my own projects and trusted me to execute them without micromanagement. They’ve given me space to speak about my past experiences and provided a safe platform to help me heal from them. They say yes to ideas I produce and always ask if I need support with anything, as I do for the rest of the team. The AC is invested in my wellbeing and personal development. It feels like a family. If you’re wanting a truly supportive circular management system, The AC is the place for you.

When our team is firing on all cylinders,
here’s what you can expect:
We maintain full transparency in our work, keeping everyone informed about who’s handling what, ongoing projects, and any changes that might impact our work. We use tools such as Asana and Slack to keep everyone in the know and regularly share key business performance stats.
We empower our team members with the autonomy to share the workload and delegate effectively. It’s also nice for each of us to have our own passion project, something we really care about.
We encourage open communication, honesty, and a culture of asking questions. Although we work remotely, you won’t feel remote. We have a weekly team meeting to plan ahead, a weekly “chinwag” to chew the fat, and quarterly get-togethers in person (mainly for the hugs), as well as other ad hoc meetings and calls when we need them.
We follow a structured approach, promoting simplicity, clarity, alignment, and well-defined ownership of tasks.
We value innovation and offer the freedom to explore new ideas and approaches.
We prioritise the well-being of our team members, plenty of support and respect for personal boundaries. We actively encourage screen breaks, making proper time for lunch or the gym and a good walk in nature when you need one.
Inclusivity and respect
We foster an inclusive environment where curiosity and respect for diverse ideas thrive. We make adjustments where needed so that everyone has what they need in order to work at their best and make use of tools that make everyone’s jobs easier.
We celebrate achievements, both big and small, with positivity and a spirit of camaraderie. We use Friday Pulse to measure our team’s happiness and share success stories and thank yous.
Living our values
We take pride in living our core values every day. We do what we say we do. We are also proud to be a certified B Corp meaning purpose and passion is part of what we do.
Doing what excites you
We believe in doing work that ignites your passion and enthusiasm and lights the fire in your belly.
Challenging the status quo
We’re not afraid to challenge the status quo and address challenges head-on.
We continually seek progress on projects and provide access to knowledge. We also want the team to thrive so we are proactive about training and development opportunities.
