Life at TTP
We’re constantly learning from each other. And the variety of activities and teams mean you’re never short of opportunities to try something new. We’re a business of individuals, but it’s our curiosity that brings us together.
Life as a consultant
There is no typical day, or typical project, at TTP. Switch from the lab to your desk to pitching your vision to our clients.
- Invent together
Great ideas can come from anyone, but they rarely appear out of a vacuum. Get involved in brainstorms across the business to release your creativity and make an impact.
- Design at your desk
Work up theories, run computer simulations, optimise tricky interfaces. Use modern software to build understanding and design great products faster.
- Test in our labs
A microfabrication cleanroom, RF chamber, laser lab, life science facility and metrology suite. Just some of the resources we use to bring our designs to life.
- Share with clients
Our projects start and end with our clients. Turn test data into valuable insights and show how we’ve changed their business.
- Explore new opportunities
Some call it business development, others call it entrepreneurship. Craft the future of TTP by creating new opportunities for us and for our clients. Go out there and show our clients how our skills can bring them technology that yields results.
- Training and development
At TTP, we learn by doing. We try, we test, we reflect, we learn. We’ve got tailored training courses to help you develop new skills and experienced colleagues are always on hand to offer advice.
Sharing our work to remind us why we’re here
We don’t all work on the same projects, so we hold Friday night talks about our work. You’ll learn about the strategy, science, design and commercial applications of what your colleagues are working on. It could be a finished product, or the beginning of something brand new.
It’s not all work. Sometimes it’s about getting out and celebrating what we do. And sometimes it’s just about getting people together. We host family-friendly summer BBQs, Christmas parties and other annual events.
Getting involved in the world around us
There are always discounted (or free) tickets to the events we support, too. Such as the Cambridge Arts Theatre and the Science Festival. You can also join one of our many sport teams, or head to our local gym with a membership discount.
Supporting young people to pursue STEM subjects
We believe it's important to get young people from all backgrounds involved in STEM subjects and to address the diversity issues in STEM employment. We give talks at primary schools through to university level and we invite our Arkwright scholars to meet our consultants each year. We co-founded Cambridge Launchpad, which has (so far) reached over 6,000 students.
Giving to charity
We support a range of local community groups and charities. For every pound donated by one of us, TTP donates another. We especially support our Charity of the Year, which is chosen by a vote of us all. This year, we chose Jimmy's Cambridge who work with the local Community, Volunteers and Partner agencies to deliver 24/7 emergency accommodation and supported housing for those who would otherwise be homeless or vulnerably housed.
