Employer Brand Values:

As a firm with ambitious growth plans, we want to continue to attract the best possible people.

After hearing from some of our existing employees, it was particularly pleasing that they confirmed that what we offer is something unusual in the market - a balance between challenging opportunities, quality work, clients and colleagues, and an entrepreneurial environment. We offer all this while also recognising that people have to be at the heart of our business.

Where ambition thrives, potential is developed and talent is rewarded.

You have the freedom to be yourself. You are encouraged to apply creative thinking to the challenges facing the firm and its clients.

You are part of a team of high calibre individuals. You are challenged with high quality, demanding work and get the support you need to succeed.

A firm of friendly, talented, straightforward people who value one another. An environment where everyone enjoys working together.

An ambitious and growing firm, that gives you real opportunities to grow with it. You work hard and get the support to achieve your full potential.

Employee Quotes

We recently spoke with several of our new joiners from over the last 12 months to find out what attracted them to the firm and how they felt after joining and as you can see the overall feelings are ones of positivity and enthusiasm:

“There is a good spread of work and clear access to great clients”

“The gap between partners and business services is not as big as elsewhere. Your input is sought after and views are listened to”

“I was attracted by the size of the firm and its established and emerging global presence – the landscape appeared to be moving forwards at a fast rate”

“People work collaboratively and discuss ideas openly. Group learning and BD efforts are inclusive for everyone”

“You genuinely do have autonomy to make things happen, particularly when you've been able to demonstrate the value you can bring. Your opinion is valued”
