Our workforce

With a wide range of businesses (and offices in 51 countries!) we're clearly global. But we're also truly local. We respect the cultures of the countries in which we operate, and we're very engaged – as individuals and as a firm – in improving our local communities.

All of our businesses want to hire and retain a diverse range of highly qualified people. We are an equal opportunity employer; having the right people (in the right roles, at the right time) helps us excel now and prepare for future growth.

We want our people to have many opportunities to grow their careers here, and we support them in changing roles because:

  • internal mobility builds relationships across businesses, helps people better develop (and use) their skills and increases their engagement with the firm.
  • deeper skills enable better client service and support long-term client satisfaction.
