Our culture


Flagstone is a company with big ambitions. Our headcount has doubled year on year, and to date, we have raised nearly £30m in funding to expand our business and support the needs of a growing customer base and team.


Our whole ethos revolves around three core values that underpin the principles and standards that drive our behaviour and our brand and demonstrate our culture to the outside world.



  • Forge a new way

  • Surpass expectations

  • Community counts


In short, we’re proactive and confident, aspirational yet authentic, and empathetic – with a commitment to our customers and our colleagues.


While we have high expectations and our people work hard, we also know that there’s more to life than work. In a fast-moving, dynamic, hard-working environment like ours, it’s just as important to know when to stop. That’s why we work together to ensure we look after ourselves and take care of each other.


Our open and inclusive culture has mental health, wellbeing, and a dedication to continuous development at the forefront, so we can be the best we can be. 


There’s still a lot to do, so join us on our journey, be part of something fresh and exciting – and protect the art of your possible.
