Accelerating the protection of nature by measuring and valuing ecosystems at scale

Our Culture

"We are a cross-continental team that is always seeking to work with the very best talent. We are inclusive, flexible, and constantly striving to build a better workplace "
Róisín-Caitlin Bonucchi, Project and Office Manager
Joining our team

Okala is committed to developing and retaining a workforce that is representative of the diverse communities where we work. We strive to build an inclusive workplace culture where all employees feel valued, and our rich diversity is celebrated by everyone. Moreover, as an ambitious and rapidly expanding company, it is important that we identify and nurture the very best talent. We recognise that the most innovative individuals often come from underrepresented groups. Accessing and developing this talent will be a key component of our future success.


We encourage people from all sections of our community to apply for jobs with us. We particularly welcome Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic, disabled, female, neurodivergent and trans applicants because we seek to increase their representation in our workforce. We will not fill positions until we have interviewed a minimum of two candidates from our list of underrepresented groups (this list is reviewed quarterly by our CEO), and we see it as incumbent on okala to attract applicants from a diverse pool.

Okala as a part of your life

We want our staff to deliver their best work, and that means recognising that their life outside of work is as diverse as the skillsets they bring to the job.

At okala, we do exciting and important work. We are therefore confident that our staff are engaged and fulfilled in the roles they play in our business. We are focussed on outputs and are not driven by presenteeism. This means we are open to discussions about flexible working at any time.  


Flexibility can benefit everyone. Individuals vary in their caring responsibilities, from collecting a sick toddler from nursery to supporting an elderly relative.

Moreover, flexibility should not just be for responsibilities; meeting a friend for a coffee or going to the gym during the day can improve productivity and work satisfaction and we both recognise and embrace this. Achieving a good work-life balance is not just important for staff wellbeing; it is essential to keep okala productive.
