Our first commitment, without question, is to the relationships we have with our clients. Many of these relationships are long-standing and we have evolved our business in line with their developing needs. However, one thing remains constant – our ability to attract bright, well-rounded people who demonstrate in tangible ways a propensity for hard work and success.
We offer our people a supportive environment where they can flourish as individuals and as part of a larger group. It’s this optimum balance between individual talent and teamwork that makes it possible for us to exceed client expectations, no matter how complex or challenging the assignment.
Sharing knowledge and experience is fundamental to our approach. Whether this means cross-team assignments, practice group seminars or one-to-one mentoring, we are passionate about developing our people. Technical assistants are exposed to the broad technical and business skills of partners across the firm, and to different working styles and personalities. We see this as the key to innovative thinking and better solutions for our clients.
Everyone in our firm needs to be contributing and adding value to our clients’ businesses. We uphold this expectation by cultivating an approach that we call “supportive intellect”. Supportive intellect works on the principle that people perform best when they come together with a common objective to share ideas. It’s about harnessing the natural enthusiasm and collective energy of our people for the benefit of our clients.
From day one, our professionals enter a formal training programme that is challenging, enjoyable and effective. Developed over several decades, it offers clients the surety of industry-regulated qualifications with the richness of partner-led learning sessions and on-the-job mentoring.
