What is it like to work for Arcus Consulting

Leadership
Leadership
Clive is accessible to all staff and still has a hands-on-approach to projects, working side-by-side with staff and clients to keep him fully in-touch with their needs and requirements. Clive makes a special effort to 'walk the office floor' to find out about staff on a personal level and to foster a family atmosphere throughout the organisation. Clive leads from the front and is the official communicator for both good and bad news demonstrating his leadership approach focussed on openness and trust. He is the first to send emails congratulating staff on their promotion or individual efforts in gaining awards such as NVQs, MRICS and MSc.

In addition to the BUPA Health Scheme, Arcus have recently introduced a new employee benefit 'health cash plan scheme' through PAYCARE open to all employees. One of the main reasons for choosing this particular provider, was the fact that they offered a professional offline counselling service and stress helpline for employees, should any staff member feel the need for extra support in addition to that provided by their team, managers, HR, Partners or the self-help provided. Other services covered in the scheme which help staff to meet the increasing costs of private health care are eye tests, optical treatments and prescribed spectacles/lenses, dental treatments, specialist treatments such as physiotherapy, osteopathy, psychiatry, chiropractic, chiropody, acupuncture etc. vaccinations, mammography, heart diseases screening etc. The cover provided by Arcus encourages staff to look after their own wellbeing and that of any dependants under the age of 16.

Arcus employees are wholly involved in projects concerning upgrading homes for various Housing Association clients. In this respect they are an integral part of providing decent affordable homes for people across the UK. Each employee also has the opportunity to volunteer for a charity of their own choosing for one day each year to help and support in any way they want. Offices are able to take a working day out to support specific initiatives in their local community if there is something they want to get involved with. Arcus have signed up to ProHelp which allows Arcus to commit their professional time as Project Managers, Architects, Building Surveyors and Cost Managers to making a difference in their local community by providing free advice and professional support. For example, we gave 250 hours of professional time to assist the development of a Community Centre and Synthetic sports pitch in Droylsden, Manchester. The centre will be used by various community groups as well as providing a learning centre for local adults and others within the community.
