Supporting our environment and communities
To maintain a highly productive, motivated and happy workplace, we place a real focus on a work-life balance. We encourage people to take holiday and have an early finish every Friday. Even the most committed employee needs time away from their job, time to relax, spend quality time with loved ones and time to clear themselves away from the pressures of the job.
We are proud of our flexible working options that allow staff improve their work-life balance and reduce the cost, time and impact of commuting. Staff enjoy taking advantage of our flexible working patterns and can choose to work compressed days, early/late starts or early/late ends of the day.

Read the unique journey and insights of staff working at Disklabs
I always had an interest in computers and working in public services, helping people & doing the right thing. I worked with the police for a few years and then joined Disklabs because of their reputation. Since I started, I’ve been promoted to lab manager focusing on the technical elements of our solutions. Some of my job involves working with our clients on-site and the work we do is diverse and interesting. I’m most proud of the work we did for the ICO on the Cambridge Analytica case.
Disklabs have bent over backwards to help me with my work life balance. I have the flexibility and support I need with my family as I work compressed hours and have an early finish on Tuesdays to collect my daughter from nursery. I feel I can always ask for support if I need it and I am trusted to get the work done and manage my time. The office and team environment make it a nice place to work.
I started at Disklabs 19 years ago and since then, I have grown and developed hugely over that time. My skills and role have grown as Disklabs has evolved and I’m now the data recovery manager. I really enjoy working with other departments as my work covers so many areas of the business’s expertise. I find pride in solving problems of our clients and creating the right technical solutions for them. Working with a strong team of experts means the satisfaction of a job well done is shared between the different departments, which I like.
The shorter working week means I can start the weekend with my family early. If I have a family emergency, the company will support me with any time I need even at short notice.
I joined Disklabs back in 2005 and Disklabs seemed the right company as I wanted to pursue my career in accounting. My role now is Office Manager. It is diverse and each day is different. This makes the job very rewarding with Disklabs and being an ever-growing company, it means that my role gives insight into all aspects of the business, working across the different services. This is one of the reasons why Disklabs is a great place to work.
My journey at Disklabs has been full of recognition and support as different obstacles have headed my way that I have personally overcome. Both management and colleagues have always supported. The team at Disklabs are fantastic and very approachable, having such a friendly team certainly makes coming to work each day enjoyable.
Having being part of the growth and journey of Disklabs over the last 18 years has certainly enabled me to help develop different areas of the business and this is something to be proud of.
Disklabs have been supportive in making charitable contributions towards different fundraising events I have been involved with over the years and this is greatly appreciated.
I have just celebrated my 20 years at Disklabs! My work is rewarding and the job I do is technical and challenging, though the more difficult it is, the more I enjoy it. It’s exciting as I get the chance to work with new companies and develop new solutions all the time. I learn from the others in the team and the projects we work on. I get the space and time to set my own work and as the management are also technically minded, they understand what is needed to get the job done. The work that I do is varied and I have travelled across the world to work on projects, and I have developed a reputation as an expert witness in the UK.
To me, Disklabs has always been secure as it always looks ahead. I enjoy the generous holiday time off and the flexibility as it suits life outside of work and my time with the family.
I graduated in 2019 and joined Disklabs as a mobile device analyst having worked in the sector for 2 years. What I liked about Disklabs was that it was a company that has been in the industry for over 20 years, and I was attracted from the first conversation we had. It’s hard work and a good laugh and there’s lots to do. The teamwork here is vital. I can share my opinions and technical skills openly and I’m valued by my team and directors.
Since working at Disklabs, I feel like I have grown in confidence in my work and skills, which has led me to do the right things. My career has really developed whilst I have been at Disklabs as I am recognised by my manager who knows me so well. I have regular appraisals where I am praised and rewarded for my work.
I feel that I totally have the tools to do my job well as I have all my own resources. If I suggest a tool is helpful, my directors are always a willing to listen and I can quickly get what I need to do the best job I can for me and my clients.
The benefits are great. The company really support me financially, especially now, I do not worry about a mobile phone bill or cost of fuel as I am part of the electric vehicle scheme. I’m in the office all day really focussing hard so having the gym really helps my wellbeing and my health.
I started my career as a Police Officer and my first involvement in computer forensics was in 2002. This gave me the skills and abilities to work at Disklabs following my retirement from the police. A friend referred me to Disklabs, and they sounded interesting. It was a complete change of role to the private sector and a move from my comfort zone, but I had the skills to make the move. It was a fast-paced environment with its unique challenges. I was really supported by the business and my colleagues in making the transition as there was a cultural difference moving from large organisation to a smaller company.
I take satisfaction in my work as I get a feeling that what I do makes a difference in assisting prosecutions or in the defence of individuals. There is a real quality assurance in the work that I do as we follow ISO procedure and I enjoy the investigations and technical aspects of the involved in my role.
The flexibility at Disklabs is extremely helpful. The 3-day weekend due to compressed hours means that I have less travel and more time with my family. I took the option of the Electric Vehicle Scheme offered because I wanted to cut travel costs and it makes me feel I am doing my bit in terms of the environment! The gym membership makes it easy to undertake exercise and keep fit, helping me stay healthy and support my mental wellbeing.
