The Mondrem group of companies exist to create places where people can thrive. Both professionally and personally, within our team and outside, we believe that people are capable of great things when they are given the space, tools, and support needed to reach their potential. The Group consists of Mondrem CIC, Wayfinder CIC, Nurture CIC, Little Orange and Squirrel Software, all of whom aim to create rewarding workplaces for our team and support and encourage everyone who we work with to make great things happen.

What is a CIC?
Three of our five companies are community-interest-companies, or 'CICs' for short. That means we're not-for-profit, and we use the money we do make to support people around us through community interest projects and activities. We work to support students and graduates from local universities, regularly employing interns and giving them space to shape the roles into ones that are rewarding for them - several remain with us on permanent contratcts today. We want to showcase the difference that CICs can make by creating professionally rewarding and community driven places. That's why for Mondrem, Wayfinder and Nurture, being CICs helped us to feel a little bit more like ourselves, making sure our name reflects how we feel and what we want to achieve.
What motivates us?
All of the Mondrem Group companies hold a strong, collective ethos. We believe in people. We believe in being kind. We believe that humans can achieve brilliant things. And we believe in providing the right tools and resources, and helping them to innovate when something doesn't work. We want to carry hope where it is sometimes scarce, and bring light to situations where darkness feels overwhelming. Ultimately, we aim to leave the world a bit of a better place than it was yesterday, and feel that the best way to do this is to help other people to shine. All of our companies have a common focus on wellbeing, and we believe that improving the happiness of workers can have transformational effects on service users and beyond.
