Our values and culture
Our people sit at our heart. It’s our goal to make you feel great about working here, and we work hard to cultivate the kind of environment that makes it easy for you to stay with us for many years.
Everyone is welcome
You will be part of an inclusive culture where you can feel comfortable being yourself. Respect is important to us and we value a diverse workforce made up of individuals with a wide range of perspectives and experiences.
Our people are at the heart of our decision making
Your opinions, ideas and concerns matter to us. Our leadership style is clear, visible and approachable, and we listen and respond to feedback.
We foster work-life balance
We don’t just say it, we deliver – you come first, fees come second. We believe in sustainable growth that supports your wellbeing and your contribution will be judged on merit, not on the number of late nights you work.
We are one team
Your success and the success of those around you are connected. We support one another, give credit where it is due, lift each other up and contribute to a collaborative environment where everyone can thrive.
We continually improve and embrace new ideas
Times change and so do we. Being the best at what we do means being open-minded, adaptable and embracing innovative solutions. You will have everything you need to be your best too, and this is reflected in our approach to learning and development.
We know there is more than one way to work well
Hybrid working is here to stay. Other than for a few specific roles, we encourage you to work where you feel you can best deliver for your clients. Be that spending all week working at home, in the office or a combination of the two. And if you need to work part-time, we’ve got you covered. We’ve also done away with a formal dress code because you don’t need us to tell you what to wear.
We want you to take a break
Our view is simple – annual leave is there to be used. We all work hard and we all need a break. We celebrate taking time out to rest, recharge and forget about work for a few days. We feel the same way about sick days. If you’re ill, we want you to switch off your laptop and recuperate.
We are more than just colleagues
We’re friends, mentors and sounding boards for each other. Together we run, do yoga, discuss novels and catch up over coffee. Our culture encourages openness and we support one another through the ups and the downs.
We are built to last
You can be confident of a strong future with us. We have been around for more 100 years and our diverse practice and focus on steady year- on- year growth means we plan to be around for many more.
We always do our best
You will work with people who believe in delivering the best service for the businesses and individuals we work with. Our culture drives us to listen to our clients’ needs, build meaningful relationships and go above and beyond, exceeding expectations and being a valued part of their journey.
