This has contributed to high productivity levels as individuals can work in the environment that best suits them, and an extremely low staff turnover rate.

It is an exciting time to join the firm as they embark on a journey to become one of the key national players and make waves in the market. In addition to a competitive remuneration package, there is the very realistic prospect of equity.
