Differences in education, background and life experience mean our people react and think differently, solve problems differently and make decisions differently. Attracting and retaining the best people across the board allows us to tap into their distinct perspectives and access unique opportunities.
The diversity of our practice is already something of which we are proud, but there is still a lot to do. We set an example that other firms are following and importantly we share ideas and best practice across our global practice. Our programmes and initiatives create opportunities and generate real change, so that all our people are supported to achieve their full potential and help us achieve ours.

We are signed members of the Social Mobility Business Compact
