We pride ourselves on a flat, transparent organisational structure, where all opinions and ideas are valued. We offer mentorship and guidance but also instil autonomy, whereby staff are encouraged to lead project workstreams and own relationships with clients and suppliers. All staff are provided regular contact time with senior management and the advisory board, alongside frequent lunch and learns led by industry experts.
