Career Prospects
As long as you try your best and show progression at a satisfactory rate, you are very likely to get promoted every year and that is very encouraging moving forward into your career.

Corporate Social Responsibility

Corporate Social Responsibility
We are constantly generating funds and awareness for a whole range of charities throughout the year. One of my favourites is that when you purchase a coffee from the Hub, you can put a coffee bean in one of three jars to which a percentage of every coffee sold will go to the three charities depending on the weight of the jars.

Big focus on socialising and team activities. While there is a semi-linear hierarchy there is clarity in communication and there is no set responsibility in each career level.

Office Work Environment
Enjoyable working space, hot-desking for most teams. Two monitors and keyboard at every station. Located right next to a train station. Dress code is largely relaxed, formal but not always suit-and-tie formal unless meeting client.

The first stage was the standard online application process followed by a video interview then a final interview with the HR manager and a manager of your selected service line.

Salary

Salary
I think the pay for a graduate role is satisfactory and I believe it is higher than most of the big four firms, which goes to show you how much the firm is willing to invest in the new employees at the firm to kick-start their careers.

Very good graduate-level training programmes, including excel skills (very handy) and goal setting, writing skills etc.

Work Hours

Work Hours
The hours most weeks are pretty standard at 7.5 working hours a day, however, during busy season that number will naturally increase due to the workload increasing. However the firm is very flexible, they have a flexi-time policy that allows you to work the hours that suit you the most including working from home.
