Featured Workplace Factors

My Company

89% of staff agreed

My work is an important part of my life

At King Sturge, the Joint Senior Partners have involvement with staff at all levels. The culture of the firm is such that all Board Members are seated in open plan offices, sitting alongside other staff at all levels. It is only in rare cases that they will have an office due to confidentiality and necessity. The senior members of the Boards therefore are very visible in the workplace and this combined with the Open Door policy which is in operation ensures that staff can approach and discuss any issues with them.

My Team

87% of staff agreed

My team is fun to work with

Centrepoint is a charity working to improve the lives of socially excluded, homeless young people aged 16 to 24. King Sturge staff are involved in a mentoring scheme, meeting up with a young person for 1 or 2 hours a month (during working day) to provide motivation, guidance and support to help them achieve their potential. They also offer a work experience programme to Centrepoint, which has in the past resulted in a permanent position being offered and accepted by the young person in question.
