Office Structure
My client does not operate in rigid teams, which allows all staff to work with all Directors and vice versa. They feel this allows staff to gain a broader range of experience and working styles, and allows for more-efficient resource planning. All staff have a Director as their Line Manager who will be responsible for them, will undertake their Annual Appraisal and 6 month review, and is available to discuss any job-related queries. Staff are given plenty of responsibility and are actively encouraged to manage their own workload, checking in with senior staff as and when needed. There is an open and communicative working style with staff encouraged to share knowledge/experience, which benefits all members of staff both junior and senior. Staff are also encouraged to source training courses and events that are relevant and beneficial to their role/position in order to maintain continuing professional development (CPD). They are also a very sociable office, regularly going for lunches, holding monthly social events, and regularly heading for informal drinks/food in the surrounding area, as soon as circumstances allow this again.
 
Terms and Benefits
The company recognises the importance of the input staff provide and are keen to incentivise and reward you for input and share the ongoing success of the company. They provide what I believe is a very good package of benefits along with competitive salaries, and the terms and benefits of the position include the following:
 
Competitive salary (negotiable and tailored to candidate/experience)
37.5 hours standard working week
27 days holiday leave per year
6% employers contribution pension scheme
Performance-related annual bonus (previous years have been up to 15%, paid in two instalments)
Flexi-time working with potential to take up to one day/month in lieu of overtime (overtime paid up to Associate level)
Annual paid staff away trip to European city in June/July
Regular formal staff socials typically monthly (flight club - darts, bounce - table tennis, T20 cricket, etc.)
Season ticket loan and cycle to work scheme available.
