What to expect from us
The success of the firm stems from our dedicated team of professionals who are committed to serving our clients. It is the spirit of our people who want to be the best in their discipline, and who work together for the client, that contributes in a significant way to the success of our business.
Qualities and experience of our team
We aim at recruiting high-calibre people with a variety of skills and qualities. These skills include: business acumen, analytical aptitude and financial awareness, business development and client focus. In all cases, communication and team skills, integrity and drive are essential.
We are interested in receiving applications from people who can add value — within a specialised career stream or across the business. The following disciplines and experience are most suited to our business: commercial accounting, chartered accounting, quantitative research, and financial analysis.
An integral part of the firm is our values-based culture. People enjoy working here because of our client-first ethos and one team approach. Our values are reflected in the way we work and the things we regard as important, and they set the standard for our practices, behaviour and conduct. Our goal is to recruit and develop people who demonstrate these core principles.
What makes the firm a unique place in which to work?
Our commitment to our people is long term. Our people are in a position to benefit directly from the success of the firm through our total reward strategy, responsible career opportunities, and our experience shows that if we serve our clients well, rewards will follow.
Our environment is characterised by a respect for people. Our open-plan offices and supportive way of operating means new and existing team members have significant contact with senior professionals who coach, mentor and foster individual talent.
Leadership and Business Principles
