Montagu Evans has been recognised as one of the best places in the property industry to work. Property Week’s definitive guide for 2018 – published here – puts us amongst the top firms in the sector.
The judges looked at eight key metrics: overall engagement; leadership and planning; culture and communication; role satisfaction; work environment; relationship with supervisor; training and development and pay and benefits and its results also picked up on our entrepreneurial ethos when considering why we are one of the best.
Career development and progression was cited as an important focus at Montagu Evans; with strong emphasis on graduate recruitment and career paths tracked from Graduate up to Partner. The recent APC success – 100% pass rate – shows our focus and commitment to the next generation. Our transparent promotion process is complemented by leadership development training to help recently-recruited Partners quickly get to grips with the firm’s many areas of specialism. Finally, wellbeing was mentioned too, from our sports teams and on-site pilates to fruit baskets and annual workshops, as well as a dedicated CSR and charitable fundraising team.
Head of HR, Anne Clarke, comments:
“It’s really great to be recognised having successfully introduced a number of employee nominated initiatives, but this really is just the beginning. The firm’s ambition and drive to continue to grow, and embrace career development coupled with modern working life and well-being is now being reflected in our employee retention and ability to attract new talent."
