Who are Sumo Nottingham?
We are a studio with a friendly, fun vibe, committed to maintaining our family feel culture with strong team relationships both inside and outside of work. For this reason, we call ourselves Sumo Nottingham Family or SNF for short. We genuinely care about each other and support each other through our successes and failures, through our good times and bad. When we celebrate success, we are proud to shout about it.
We take huge pride in our inclusive working environment and in making our teams happy and comfortable at work.
We thrive on our Studio traditions, including our Friday treats, our birthday celebrations, our milestone celebrations and our socials.
Everybody in the Nottingham family has a voice and all ideas are encouraged and listened to.
Where are we?
We’re just a mile outside the City Centre, ten minutes walk from the train station, with good tram and bus links. The Nottingham Cycle Superhighway is also on our doorstep as is PureGym, where we offer a free membership to staff. We also have two big supermarkets located close by, together with some fast food options, very handy for a lunchtime treat.
Nottingham is bustling, busy city of nightlife, culture, sport and stories. For the seventh year in a row, Nottingham has been awarded a Purple Flag as being recognised as one of the best nights out in the UK. It has a diverse offering of bars hidden down alleyways, under pavements, indie hotspots, cosy pubs and cocktail bars.
Visit England awarded Nottingham the Home of Sport title in 2015 and Trent Bridge International Cricket ground, the National Ice Centre, the National Water Sports Centre, Nottingham Forest and Notts County football grounds are all within walking distance of the studio.
We’re a cultured lot and we like to get our fix at the Theatre Royal, Royal Concert Hall and the world renowed Nottingham Playhouse where some of our greatest actors got their starts. The Nottingham Contemporary Art Gallery has some incredible exhibits and, if you’re a history buff, take a trip to the newly refurbished hilltop Nottingham Castle and visit the Robin Hood statue whilst there.
Further afield, Wollaton Hall and Park is an amazing venue to visit and was used as a filming location for Wayne Manor in Warner Bros’ ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ film. We also have Sherwood Forest around 15 miles away from the city centre where you can visit the Robin Hood visitors centre and see the Major Oak.
We are so lucky that Nottingham is surrounded by glorious countryside. To the North, we are only and quick journey away from the majestic Peak District and the beautiful Vale of Belvoir sits to the East of the City.
We are confident that you’ll love not only our studio but the city and its surrounding areas.
