A healthy space for growth
As you begin your career with us, the first thing that you’d notice is flexibility. Yes, while everyone is often at their desks, there are several spots within the office that are built for working in private. Need to take a phone call? There are plenty of sound-proof booths around the office. Looking to play a game of FIFA to destress? Sit down at the gaming area and catch a game with the lads. Hungry for a quick bite or need that caffeine kick, work from our in-house tuck shop or coffee shop.
Oh, and how could we forget; an in-house barber and salon stylist is often available on call, so you look sharp for those viewings!
While we appreciate the time our agents spend working on cracking deals in the office, we’ve ensured to build a healthy space where one can flourish without the burden on their mental health.
And, if you ever need a friend to chat to, my door is always open!
What does progression within the company look like?
There’s nothing more we love than promoting people internally. As long as you see yourself as a hard-working team-player, nothing is impossible here. Be vocal about your progression to your senior management team, let us know where you’d like to see yourself in a few years and we’ll help you set KPIs and goals to achieve them in a neutral time-frame.
Work hard, play hard and surround yourself with positive people, and nothing is out of reach at the office. The team supports each other to grow by assisting on deals to cracking deals together. The talent, experience and knowledge we have across all departments are second to none and collectively we're a force to be reckoned with.

We listen and guide each other. Be it inside or outside work, there’s always a shoulder to rely on.

And it doesn't stop there; we know how hard it is being away from family and how important family time is, so if you've been missing your folks back home, we close for Christmas and New Year, giving our agent's a much-needed two-week break to spend with family and friends!
