Grass Roots

Grass Roots is a global company, with offices in ten countries, and our annual turnover runs into hundreds of millions (growing each year). Yet we know that little things can make a big difference, too.

Grass Roots is much more than just a workplace. Our strong sense of family means that we're happy to support each other's passions and interests, and to work together to put something back into the wider community. For example, employees can take 'volunteer days' to work for local causes (which inevitably tend to involve paint, mud and perhaps a beer or two afterwards).
