LoughTec Careers

People Help People

People are our biggest asset. We place a premium on building individual relationships with our clients. People helping people is the way to makes sure systems work as they’re supposed to.

We work hard to achieve the goals we set ourselves. For our people, we encourage a caring, inclusive and creative environment. Work-life balance is a real thing, and the pandemic has allowed us all to rethink how we work.

Our people enjoy fresh fruit throughout the week, the flexibility to work remotely, a generous holiday allocation, time off for personal appointments and free car parking.

Diversity is important to us. We recruit and employ based on merit. And we have created an inclusive workplace where people are valued and respected.
