As a business, Hermes is driven by our four values of Do the right thing,Dare to be different, Strive for more and Be Customer Obsessed. We run our business by these values and they are reflected in all of our roles, but particularly for newly created positions like our Hub Engineer role working at our flagship Nuneaton Hub.
