Health and safety first

These are unprecedented times and because our people are important to us, health and safety couldn’t be more important to us. We have made sure that our office is a safe place to work and we’ll continue to do so. Our team currently has the flexibility to either work from home or on-site during this time to ensure that we combat the spread of CV-19. 

Our benefits

At Ozow, first and foremost, you’ll get to do meaningful work and grow your career. But we’re also not your average 9-5 company. We work together and play together and because we really care, we offer plenty of perks too.

Some of the things to look forward to

Fitness challenges and healthy eating. Medical and Life insurance plans. Be the hero or toast the hero of the month at first-Friday drinks. Take half a day off from work on your birthday and let us celebrate this special day with you by giving you a little spoil. Your family is our family, they too get spoils and get to join us on special events. Our holistic wellness program will give you access to a toll-free confidential telephonic counseling line which is available in all 11 languages, 365 days a year. We thrive on seeing our team members grow by creating a learning culture and deliberate training programmes. There is so much more where this came from, but enough to get you excited.

If we seem like the kind of forward-thinking, progress-making, energetic company you’ve been waiting for, give us a shout. We’d love to hear from you.

Thank You
