What we want

No two roles will ever have identical applicants – horses, courses… You know how it is. However, the people brilliant (or is it brave?) enough to join Lightfoot usually share some common traits.

  • Lightfoot HQ is an energetic place. We want everyone who joins to have the same buzz about working for a company that is constantly growing and expanding. If you’re looking for a cosy corner in a quiet office, you might be a little blown away by Innovation Valley.
  • Without wanting to go cliché crazy, a sense of humour will help no end. We are a tight-knit team and it’s down to all the fun we have together. Our open plan office means you’re just as likely to crack up with someone on the other side of the room as with your neighbour
  • Lastly, we need you to really get Lightfoot. We are our own biggest fans and it’s because we have a product that genuinely does good in the world. If you can see why Lightfoot is such a game-changer, you’ll be in good company.

What it’s like

An average day at Lightfoot… isn’t very average. Why not read Jade’s “Lightfoot Life” post or our chat with Phil to get a taste of who’s here and what they’re up to. Our blog has tonnes of interviews with new starters and wise old heads alike, so have a browse to learn what working for Lightfoot is really like.

In Summer 2018, we relocated to cutting-edge Innovation Valley, near Exeter, with our sister company Ashwoods Electric Motors.

Words can’t do it justice but, luckily, the Lightfoot Video team put together the perfect introduction to our new home.

Devon life

With the nearest beaches just 20 minutes from Innovation Valley and the stunning scenery of Dartmoor not much further, we are in the perfect location to enjoy Devon’s most beautiful locations.

Exeter itself is a vibrant city. With an inspiring indie quarter, the beauty of the Quay, delicious local food, and enough bars to keep the student population busy, there’s something for everyone.

We would never take sides (despite there clearly being only one sensible method), but there is no better means of persuasion than a Devon cream tea.

Forget the café culture of France and the siestas in Spain, Devon life is something else.
