Life at Zoopla

We want our people to feel supported, motivated and inspired
across everything they do at Zoopla.

When it came to designing our workspace, we wanted to create an environment that gets people excited about coming to work. As our London office has been voted one of the ‘Top ten coolest offices in the UK’ on Glassdoor, we’re putting a tick next to that mission.

Who we are

Our Behaviours

At Zoopla we are guided by a set of six behaviours that sit at the heart of our business and reflect the qualities found in every single one of our team members. Following these behaviours makes us more dynamic, more effective and ultimately more successful for our colleagues and our clients.

Behaviour 01

We identify our audience and seek a deeper understanding of who they are, what they need and why.

Behaviour 01

Every pursuit for a smarter solution starts with our thirst for knowledge and understanding. We put our customers and stakeholders (whoever they may be) at the centre of everything we do. By applying our data and insights, we can fully understand the opportunity and become experts in the needs and desires of the people we seek to help.

Behaviour 02

We use curiosity and insight to design simpler, life-changing experiences.

Behaviour 02

When we apply curiosity and creativity to our unique insights, we can break new ground and radically improve the lives of those who need us. When we don’t know the answer, we continuously iterate, test and learn to find it. We know that occasionally, new ideas might fail. Then, we admit mistakes quickly and openly, learn and share what we’ve learnt with others.

Behaviour 03

We proactively contribute our skills, knowledge and energy to accelerate the achievement of shared ambitions.

Behaviour 03

Our diversity of products, people and perspectives make us stronger and smarter together. And we know that when we all pull in the same direction we get there faster. So we resolutely bridge silos and work across teams, all aligned in pursuit of the same ambitious vision. We seek input, show respect, listen to one another and give help readily. We celebrate our successes and win or lose together.

Behaviour 04

We earn trust by being responsible, reliable and accountable for everything we do, from start to finish.

Read More
Behaviour 04

We understand our individual responsibilities and own them; no matter how big or small the task, while the going is good and when it gets tough. Trust is something we all need to earn, every day. So we keep our promises, do the right thing, and manage expectations to show others that they can count on us.

Behaviour 05

We solve problems, overcome obstacles, recalibrate, and deliver meaningful results.

Read More
Behaviour 05

We are enablers and problem solvers. Clear on what success looks like, we work with pace, pragmatism and positivity to keep things moving and to deliver results. When we encounter obstacles, we quickly get to the root cause and solve it. Even if we need to change direction, we draw meaning and insight from the journey so far.

Behaviour 06

We take pride in delivering quality and excellence. We move the dial and set the bar higher for others.

Read More
Behaviour 06

We aim to lead. We hold ourselves and each other accountable for delivering to the highest possible quality. We use our judgement – distinguishing between when excellence is required and when when good enough is good enough – but we always take pride in our work.

Our leadership team, many of which are new to Zoopla, have decades of experience working for some of the world's most exciting businesses. Following the launch of our Zoopla Behaviours in 2019, they talk about our award-winning office, our unique culture and give an insight into how they started their careers. From cooking in a Chinese restaurant to chicken processing to digging ditches, it's safe to say the path to Zoopla has been a varied one!
