Why Stephensons?

We are a long established firm which combines innovation with stability and security

Team working in a collaborative happy environment is important to us. Our partners have an open door policy,infact many of them operate in an open plan environment. All of our partners from the chairwoman down are available to staff and always welcome feedback, positive or negative. We are committed to an open and supportive culture for everyone.

We firmly believe that our people are the most important asset we have. As an Investor in People, we have continually demonstrated our commitment to the development of all our staff, offering unlimited opportunities for those people prepared to work for it.

In order to build on our established success, we seek to recruit people who will both complement and enhance our existing team spirit and client-focused approach. A down-to-earth attitude, commitment, drive, enthusiasm and expertise are just some of the traits that we value.
