Our People

ThirdSpace is successful because of our people. They are central to everything we do.

We’ve grown considerably since our launch, but every one of our employees plays a vital role in positioning the company as a market leader.

The culture

We’re experts in our field. We’re ambitious, swift and hungry to take on the challenges presented by our ever-changing industry. And we’re excited to harness the opportunities this brings.

But we’re also friendly, supportive and mindful about the complexities of our world. This is why we hire people that help our clients understand the bigger picture and to envision, for themselves, the possibilities of tomorrow’s digital security.

ThirdSpace is built on strong values: quality, agility and respect. Through this, we empower our employees to be the very best they can be, growing as experts, challenging convention and sharing in the continued success of a business in which they play a meaningful and important role.

"Fundamentally we are a people business. The enthusiasm, expertise and innovation create the energy and make it a pleasure coming to work every day." Neil Coughlan CEO
