Just To Say Valentines Graphic 2023

Valentine’s Day at Just R

In honour of the day of loooove, each member of the team was given a “Just to say…” card, within which we all wrote down something that we admire about someone else in the team

Christmas at Beamish!

The team headed to Beamish for our Christmas day out, exploring the 1900’s, making some decorations and having a good laugh to celebrate the end of the year and everything we have accomplished together!

December quarterly team meeting

Team Quarterly Session

For our final quarterly session of 2022, we gathered together at Holme Head House to discuss what we have achieved in the last quarter, and define what we want to in the next! Everyone shared their individual achievements and we got to spend the afternoon as a team

Horse riding

After horse riding was first introduced to the team at Rookin House, many of the team took an interest and continue to plan days out over the weekend to enjoy being outside! We are so lucky to have this on our doorstep!

Run Club

Why should your organisation start a run club?

Every Thursday, a group of us commit to hitting the pavement! It’s a great way for us to achieve our goals, feel relaxed and to challenge ourselves. You don’t have to run – we have plenty of Just R members that join us for a job or a walk instead…

Our very own (creative) Wonder Woman!

Leah, our Senior Creative, had the most iconic tissue box of Wonder Woman. Sadly, all the tissues were used…Rachael, our CEO and Founder, searched high and low to replace (even looked on Ebay!) but was evidently irreplaceable! Rachael was able to secure this Wonder Woman mug as a gift for Leah!

Getting financially savvy

Our team came together, from home or office, to expand our personal financial knowledge with the help of Rachael Bell Wealth Management!

Ben reading

The power of reading for your wellbeing

Reading can be a very powerful wellbeing tool. We are all avid readers at Just R, and believe that reading together as a team can help us all better learn from and understand the information we read!

2 year celebrations!!

Our wonderful Senior Creative, Leah Tickner, has been with Just R for 2 years! An achievement in itself, not to mention all the amazing campaigns she has produced in that time. We are excited to see what the next 2 years and beyond look like!

A new hobby for the Just R team! A few of us recently “tried our hand” at bouldering at Eden Rock! While it was a first for many of us, we soon found a footing and saw the joy in this sport… we’ve even been back a couple of times since!



Team Lunch

On the last Friday of each month, we get together as a team to support a local food business and have a good old chat together. It’s a time that gets us all talking about work, life and everything in between!

Building a team of Role Models

A big part of our culture is celebrating our successes both as a team and as individuals. Our role model awards show the recognition of colleagues who have shown true role models qualities!

Rookin House team building activity day

Winner winner, chicken dinner! Ian was the winner of our mini archery championship at Rookin House… still not convinced it wasn’t rigged!

Just R team choir

We do some pretty bazar activities at the office! All with the purpose to build confidence, sense of community and just having a laugh to start the day off right (we may need to work on our singing voices a bit…)

Another team Wainwright complete!

This time, some of the Just R team walked up the popular Catbells. It was great to explore more of the beautiful place where we live, and get to know each other better! Planning the next walk now…

A fuel-filled team day out

The team took a trip to Rookin House for a day of quadbiking, archery and horse riding! We built stronger relationships with our colleagues and genuinely just enjoyed a bit of what life has to offer – its all about work-life balance!

Part of our onboarding process is a check-up once each new starter has completed a month with us! It’s a time for them to openly talk about what they have enjoyed, what could be better about their onboarding and a general check-up with how they are getting on. Supporting employees is the foundation of a supportive business…


Rich Field

Training with Rich & Peter Field

Experts in leadership and management, the team got to spend the day at Holme Head House with the brilliant Rich Field and his brother Peter. Starting off with 1-2-1 sessions, the day progressed to learning how we can run better meetings, grow as a business and be more confident in ourselves. Thank you Rich and Peter!

A visit to Carlisle College

A few members of the team went in to speak to the students of Carlisle College! Each with a unique journey, we wanted to reassure that no career path is straightforward but have extremely valuable as you find what you’re passionate about!

Team Yoga

We love our weekly team yoga sessions at The Yoga Studio Carlisle. One of the benefits we have here is the one subsidised session of yoga a week – something to stretch the body and calm the mind!



A day for celebrating

Just R just had its first Celebration Day for 2022 and it was every bit worth celebrating!
