During your first few days we will do everything we can to help you settle in and feel at home. We have a great culture here and the team are always happy to help so if you have any questions, just ask.


What happens on your first day


Quick show-around


Kate (our front-of-house person) will give you a quick tour around the office, making sure you know where the essentials, like the coffee machine, toilet, tuck shop and fire exits are.


Monday morning meeting


We do this pretty much every week; it does exactly what is says on the tin - the team get together to discuss our weekends and the week ahead. Often Rob will share a financial update so we always know how the agency is doing against our targets. You'll find we're very open about performance at Blueleaf.


Pete will help get you set up


Pete, one of our senior developers, will help get you up and running, giving you a brief overview of kit and things like email, Slack and JIRA.


Introduction to scheduling with Sarah


Sarah will give you an introduction to 10,000ft (our scheduling tool), as well as JIRA where all our projects and timesheets are managed.


HR bits and pieces with Kay


Kay will talk you through the HR stuff like contracts and holidays, as well as introducing you to SAS Protect, our online HR system.


Catch up with Adrian


Adrian will spend time with you, giving you a potted history of Blueleaf and helping you to understand things like why we do what we do, why we have the values we have and why we are called Blueleaf.

It's important you know where we have been and where we're going as a business and Adrian will explain all about the Vision (where we are heading) and the mission (how we are going to get there). It's so important we all know where we are going in order to make the journey there much easier.


We will get you set up with...


We use Gmail for our work email: it ties in nicely with Calendar and Drive. Once you have logged into your account we will send you the details for all the other apps we use.

Slack is the system we use for all our internal communications. Slack uses "channels" rather than direct emails which dramatically cuts down the number of emails we send and receive and keeps everyone in the loop.

JIRA is another system that is fundamental to the day-to-day running of Blueleaf. All our projects and timesheets are managed through it and we use it to store key information.

SAS Protect

SAS Protect is our online HR system. It's private so nobody can log into your system except you and our HR team. You can look up our policies, view your contract, book your holidays and manage sickness.

Kay will send you your log-in; have a look around and let her know if you have any questions. Once you're happy you've got all the information you need, please sign your contract and tick the boxes to let us know you've read our HR policies.

Please can you do this by XX.

Your login will be emailed to you


We use 10,000ft for scheduling everyone's work and this is managed by Sarah, our Traffic Manager. At the start of each week, Sarah will go though your schedule with you.
