During these uncertain times, we have continued to work together to

usual high standards of work, for each other and for our clients. With
wellbeing being our priority, we have adapted our ways of working to
ensure that new and existing colleagues get the support they need,
when they need it. Interviews are taking place via Microsoft Teams and
induction processes are being coordinated remotely at present, to
enable people to begin working for us from home until such time as it
is possible to return to the office. In the meantime, we have adapted
our office environments to ensure they are 'Covid secure', if people
do need to attend the office.
We will continue adjusting our approach as things change, so please
