We want our firm to represent the diverse communities in which we operate and we encourage applications from people of all backgrounds and identities. 98% of our people believe we have an open and inclusive workplace – come join them.

We have a number of commitments and awards which demonstrate our approach to inclusion and assist us in being an inclusive employer:


Our approach to inclusion focuses on four key areas: gender, disability, ethnicity and LGBT+, all of which are underpinned with the ambition to provide social mobility within each of these groups. Each focus area has a strategic action plan and people-led networks to ensure engagement and support delivery.

  •  We have a Gender Action Plan focussed on delivering gender balance across the firm, particularly in the partnership and senior business professional roles; designing a workplace accessible to those with additional caring responsibilities and ensuring all our people feel confident to progress in the workplace. We have been recognised as a Times Top 50 Employer for Women for the second year running, demonstrating the innovative work we’ve done in this area. 
  • We have strong LGBT+ representation within our organisation. We are long-standing sponsors of Bristol Pride and Edinburgh Pride and we have a people-led network championing LGBT+ issues, BProud. We continue to implement best practice in LGBT+ inclusion through our involvement with Stonewall.
  • We have a Race Action Plan to continue to improve our ethnicity diversity representation within our workforce. Internally, we have an ethnic diversity reverse mentoring programme for key senior leaders, to ensure they continue to build inclusive and representative departments and processes.
  • We are committed to employing people with long-term health conditions, disabilities or impairments. We are a Disability Confident Employer, ensuring that we provide best practice in supporting out people and providing any adjustments or tools needed in the workplace. 
  • Social mobility follows through each of our diversity and inclusion strands and we have been recognised as a Top 75 Employer for Social Mobility. We follow best practice, such as the Prime Commitment, and take part in local schemes, such as Bristol Future Talent Partnership and Women’s Work Lab.
  • We have developed active relationships with a number of community partners and local charities to support our efforts in diversity and inclusion. We continue to work with them to implement best practice for our people. To see the work we are doing in this area, please refer to the Responsible Business Report.
