We strive to build an environment where everyone can fulfil their career ambitions and offer role specific technical and soft training at every stage of a career.

What you will find across the teams, regardless of the role or location, is that everyone is straight talking, approachable, honest and above all, friendly. We work hard to ensure that all staff feel equally valued. We recognise that everyone has different personal circumstances. Obviously, we need be fair to everyone, but we don’t have a rigid, authoritarian view of things, and as far as possible, we try to offer a flexible working environment. A proper work/life balance is very important to us. Of course, achieving and maintaining our world class reputation requires hard work, but we are also human and know that environment and pastoral care play an important role in the success of the business as well. We believe that this absolute dedication to providing the best possible service to our clients, in a relaxed, friendly and supportive working environment, sets us apart from our competitors.

We are committed to our inclusion and diversity objectives and have committees made up of both support and fee earning staff to support our diversity and social mobility goals. We are closely involved with the Sutton Trust and other non-governmental organisations and charities.
