Executive & Project Assistant

Iris Rattley

One thing that stands out is our culture of permission. We have great people who have the space to act on new ideas and experiment, and an amazing network of Nousers across the globe to tap into.


Michael Rathjen

Nous’ culture is the sum of its parts. Everyone gets a seat at the table, an opportunity to contribute and the support to challenge. It generally rejects hierarchy; answers don’t come from one brain, but from the cumulation of our diverse people and their experiences


Craig Knox Lyttle

What I love most about working at Nous is the respect for every Nouser as an individual with their own strengths and preferences, and working as part of a global team with a single positive purpose.

Recruitment Consultant

Kelly Rowe

I knew I made the right decision to join Nous once I started to meet colleagues in Canada, the UK and Australia and heard about the amazing and impactful public sector projects those colleagues had worked on.


Jordan Lazarus

No matter how much you grow there’s always someone pushing you to take new risks and explore new avenues for development.


Harry White

All organisations care about culture – to a point. What Nous does differently is to prioritise culture, which is much harder. By trusting that we get the best outcomes by building a great culture, we achieve fantastic results, and I think enjoy our working lives more as well.
