Being self-motivated and ambitious, you already possess the drive to help continue to grow and develop our business, and in return you will be rewarded and supported by us as you progress in your career. As a firm, we believe that our relationship with our clients is paramount. To be successful, you will need the ability to build strong and lasting relationships with clients and show good commercial judgement combined with a genuine commitment to their individual business needs.

Working for Ashfords, you can expect to be provided with excellent training and development opportunities, in order to further your career in a stimulating yet supportive, forward thinking firm. We're ambitious - for ourselves, and for our people - and want to support you to realise your full potential, whilst enjoying a positive work-life balance in a beautiful South West location.

You'll also enjoy our range of flexible benefits, which include:

  • Pension
  • Life Assurance
  • Private Health Insurance
  • Private Medical Insurance
  • Discretionary bonus scheme
  • 25 days annual leave, all bank holidays plus your birthday off and an extra day at Christmas. Your holiday entitlement increases with length of service.
  • Holiday Purchase Scheme
  • Childcare Voucher Scheme
  • Enhanced Maternity & Paternity Pay

During these uncertain times, we have continued to work together to ensure that our people feel safe, supported and able to achieve our 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 do feel free to ask us about our response to the Covid-19 pandemic during our recruitment process, if you would like to know more.
