“As the current longest serving member of staff I have seen many changes over the years but one thing that hasn’t changed over this time is the way that Charterhouse has demonstrated that employees are just as important as clients. From benefit packages, social events and the usual day to day, all staff are highly regarded and I can say that I am proud to have been part of a dynamic, diverse and ever evolving firm for so long.”

Julie Terry – Company Secretarial Department
Company Secretarial Manager

“Starting a new job in ‘normal’ circumstances can be quite daunting, starting a new job from home is even more daunting! However, Charterhouse (Accountants) Limited made it so easy. I had a really informative induction which helped a lot and I got to meet my team members on a zoom call on my first day. I was assigned a buddy which made asking questions so much easier. Everyone in the team is so polite and extremely helpful which makes it so much more comfortable for me to ask questions… even the silly ones! I particularly enjoy that we have a weekly team zoom catch up where we can get to know each other better through different activities and catching up on any work matters that need addressing. Looking forward for things to go back to ‘normal’ and getting to meet my colleagues in person!”

Charterhouse is a great place to work at because the staff are not only respectful to one another but all staff and directors are encouraging, approachable and contribute to make this a wonderful atmosphere to work in. Rachel Baiden Admin department (Receptionist Administrator) I have had the pleasure of working at Charterhouse Accountants Ltd for five years. During this time, I have experienced working with diverse groups of people as either colleagues and or clients. The ‘In-house’ knowledge base is widespread, and not restricted. I applaud our ‘can-do and will-do’ attitude, to support Clients and or worthy community causes. The business attitude portrayed is exactly how I would expect a fair, conscientious and forward thinking business to be - That makes me very proud! To my mind, there is evidence on a daily basis to encourage and support staff to value with utmost respect not only themselves, but those whom they come in to contact with. Long may the adventure continue. Elaine Lynch Payroll department (Payroll Manager) It is a great company to work for, which values the employee whilst meeting client's expectations, which is rare. A very welcoming and friendly team making a very pleasant working enivronment. Nila Raichura Accounts Audit department (Accounts Senior) Charterhouse is a very welcoming and friendly working environment and a great place to learn. The work is varied and the management are all very supportive – you’re always made to feel like an important member of any team. Jack Hurren Tax department (Tax Semi Senior) I feel really great working at Charterhouse. The company is providing great benefits and good work life balance. There is very good balance between social activities and focus on work. Staff here are really supportive and nice. I really appreciate the employees’ appraisal system which has helped me understanding my strengths and development needs. I also appreciate the fact that my role here is more challenging than my previous jobs but at the same time is less stressful.
