Our people

Grapevine’s power comes from the skilled and passionate people who live and breathe our mission everyday. They bring brilliance to our work.

Team Grapevine

Seven key aspects of our culture support the team to perform at its best:

  • Being accountable to the people we serve
  • Freedom and trust to do what is right
  • Support to stay true to people’s dreams
  • Trust and encouragement to make decisions autonomously
  • Support to be curious, exploratory and playful
  • Modelling and transmitting our key skills and beliefs
  • Comfort with uncertainty when that’s necessary.
