How we work

We operate in an ‘all-hands-on-deck’ capacity, meaning that each of us stays connected to the work being performed by all, and contributions are welcome and expected. Collaboration will remain a constant feature of how we operate, and your input will be sought after.

Everyone at APS is expected to want to evolve in terms of professional development and role scope.
