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.
