Our people

We have created a culture of openness and transparency where all of our people can make a difference.

As well as a distinctive global culture, we have developed six core principles, known as our CLEARR values.

  • Collaboration: ask for help, give help – we work well together
  • Leadership:  have courage and inspire others – we challenge each other to be the best we can be
  • Excellence:  find a better way every time – we never get complacent
  • Agility:  think broadly, act quickly – we thrive in change
  • Respect: listen and understand, be forthright – we create honest relationships
  • Responsibility: use influence wisely – we own our actions

Our CLEARR values underpin our culture and how we do business – they are embedded throughout our business and set the parameters of how our people behave with their colleagues, clients and the world at large.

Below are a few stories from our people and how they live out our values everyday.

Charlotte, Tax trainee and former intern, Oxford

“I’ve packed a lot into my two years here, learning and developing so much. I became part-qualified during my second year, and have experienced lots of variety in the work I do and in the clients I work with."

Amit, Advisory trainee and former placement student, London

"On my university placement year, I gained lots of experience, working with entrepreneurial businesses and helping to project manage a major awards ceremony."

Hark, PSA trainee and former intern, Birmingham

"My internship was a steep learning curve. But it was also fun, enjoyable and support was always on hand. I was a bit worried at first about my lack of accounting knowledge. But the team expects this and provides lots of training and support."

Aamna, Tax trainee former school leaver, Manchester

"When I first joined the firm in Autumn 2016 as a school leaver in corporate tax it took some time to get used to the change of environment."
