My Training Contract in Newcastle

“The biggest thing that makes our office unique is the Geordie hospitality! As someone who moved to the area not knowing a lot of people, the office staff took me under their wing and were so welcoming and friendly!

“I felt like a valued member of the team from the outset. Also, the opportunities are endless in Newcastle so joining the Newcastle office allowed me to be a part of a growing team at an exciting time in what has been a difficult economic backdrop for many other firms."
