Our three biggest offices are located in London, Southampton and on the Isle of Man.
London is the world’s largest financial centre, alongside New York. More than 75% of Fortune 500 companies have London offices. This makes it an excellent place to foster your career, so why not do that with us!
London gives you an almost endless tick-list of cultural, historical, leisure and sight-seeing experiences. Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, Kensington Palace, London Eye and Tower of London are familiar around the world, but as all Londoners know the city is composed of hundreds of villages and communities – all with their own appeal, culture and attractions.
Although working in, and in many cases, commuting into, London can be stressful; the consolation is that there are plenty of open spaces and parks to ‘feed the soul’. London has eight Royal Parks, multiple council parks, jogging routes, and a fantastic number of green spaces and garden squares open to the public.
Not surprisingly, it’s also one of the best places in the world for theatrical and musical performances; from the South Bank concert halls and the famous theatres of the West End, to the more vibrant and innovative experimental action in regenerated Zone 2 venues. Similarly London’s museums, galleries, and other institutions cater for high-, low-, and no-brow tastes.
Southampton is one of the best places to live and work in the UK – so what are some of the things that make it a good place to be?
Vast swathes of the city have a distinct green hue about them – the Common alone is 326 acres of woodland and open spaces at the heart of Southampton, including its own wildlife centre. Include other places such as Outdoor Sports Centre, city centre parks, Riverside Park, Weston Shore and over 40 others, you're never far from a pleasant green space in the city.
There's so much history in the city, it's easy to get lost and find yourself in any one of a number of periods in British history. The medieval town walls, the Norman-era St Michael's Church, Tudor House, Mayflower monument, give just a taste of what Southampton was like in previous centuries.
Ok, despite being a city on the coast, Southampton doesn't always feel like it's got much of a waterfront - but that doesn't mean there isn't plenty to do on Southampton Water and the Solent. It's one of the premier sailing locations in Europe, as well as having plenty of other watersports available. Pleasure cruises or even just a simple ferry ride are available for people who would prefer a slower pace, or perhaps a stroll along the promenades at Mayflower and Riverside Parks or skipping stones along Weston Shore are more your type of thing.
Right on your doorstep, you've got the New Forest, South Downs, Winchester, Bournemouth and Portsmouth. All of them have their appeals and have things Southampton doesn't – but we're in the middle of them, as well as having things they don't. Just over an hour away is London with an international airport that can get you to virtually any country in Europe within a few hours.
