Our Values

Our core values are those of honesty and respect of individuals. We could also tell you how we value diversity and create safe spaces for people to flourish. But maybe our staff retention numbers will explain it better. In an industry where most IT staff move jobs ever 1.5 to 2 years, KRS boasts an average staff length of service of 7.5 years. We have a regular intake of juniors through our annual internship programme, and ongoing professional development for all staff. We provide meaningful benefits, and a great remote work support structure. It’s not just our staff who stay with us. We have clients who’ve relied on us for many years, and those who always come back to us for their next project.
