some of our team

our team

The success of itsu depends entirely on the attitude and ability of our people. Our business will thrive when our employees are both professional and proud. Again and again, we find huge benefit from promoting within - the more training, responsibility and rewards we give, the better itsu will become.

We have a simple principle to encourage your development… the more you learn, the more you earn.
