Working practices and Covid-19

Since March 2020, most of our employees have been working successfully from home and our business has continued to do well throughout this period, despite increasing work volumes.

We have now reorganised our office to provide a socially distanced and safe working environment and have evolved to a position where most team members will work from home some or most of the time but come to the office as needed (depending on their role and experience) and we expect this to be our long term working practice going forward.

Many meetings, both internal and external, are held over Microsoft Teams and we are again now running a full service for our clients.

Salary and benefits

Salary: Commensurate with experience

Start date: As soon as available.
