Our clients operate in a variety of industries including media (tv/film), professional services, hospitality & leisure, and financial services to name a few. This varied experience will allow you to gain exceptional insight into finance functions of all shapes and sizes.

Outside the client work, many of the team choose to get involved in the wider firm by joining one of a number of groups, from charity and social committees, to the diversity team, or by training as a mental health first-aider.  We work closely with our audit, tax and data analytics departments and these groups and committees are a great way to bring the different teams together in a working environment.  The team enjoy a good social and many of us can often be found spending time with each other outside of office hours.
