Business support staff

We operate through a full business support team including accounting and finance, HR, IT, marketing and other support staff.

Each department employs staff to enable the firm to manage itself efficiently and effectively on a day-to-day basis as well as to prepare the firm for the future achievement of its objectives.

We are particularly keen to employ secretaries who will assist our clients as much as possible, becoming actively involved wherever appropriate. We will consider providing assistance for training to administrative staff who would like to further their careers.
