For over 85 years, we have demonstrated our commitment to making a positive impact on society and the environment.
This includes charity work, education, promoting professional development and aspirations within our youth, and empowering our staff to support our drive for reducing our environmental impact.
Our core values drive the focus of our CSR.
- Forward thinking
Our people, their knowledge, and their expertise are the backbone of our business.
We therefore place great emphasis on training, development and knowledge building, supporting our staff through all stages of their careers.
Our philosophy is to nurture and grow talent from within which has seen nearly all our partners’ progress through the practice from training contracts.
We always aim to recruit locally and offer a number of trainee programmes for professional and support roles within the practice.
As an ethical firm, we believe in treating our staff fairly and looking after their health and wellbeing.
Charity and Community
We have maintained a local office presence rather than centralising our resources which keeps us at the heart of the communities in which we operate.
We regularly sponsor or hold events to raise money for a number of local charitable causes and encourage our staff to take part in fundraising activities.
In supporting our communities, staff and partners contribute their professional expertise, by giving their time to community organisations on a voluntary basis.
We are also involved in initiatives linked to education and have helped a number of students by providing them with work experience opportunities and to train with our practice.
We are extremely aware of the impact that we all have on the environment and actively support and promote reducing this as much as we can.
Some of the initiatives we have introduced include:
- working from home
- use of video conferencing rather than travel
- removal of disposable single use plastic coffee cups
- drive for a paper light office environment
- energy efficient lighting and heating
- recycling of waste
- encouraging car sharing
