What is it like to work for Creaseys

Personal Growth
Personal Growth
Creaseys believe everyone should be treated as individuals, and so they avoid fixed career paths and regimented training programmes. Instead they follow a tailored approach that enables each person to explore and fulfil their potential with them. Their CEO started as an office junior with Creaseys when she was twenty, which demonstrates what someone can achieve working with them. This is a really important message for their training accountants in terms of what they could achieve. However, everyone’s ambitions are personal to them and not all trainees want to become a partner or CEO. They therefore aim to enable everyone to achieve their potential and personal ambition. 
Wellbeing
Wellbeing
Creaseys have recently moved to a new office and the new space is designed with employee wellbeing in mind. The aim was to provide colleagues with choice and control with their work environment. It is important that the desk isn’t seen as the only space to work and that there is a variety of workspaces that provide more or less privacy. Colleagues can pick up a mobile device and go into the breakout room to check their emails, or go into a quiet room for some time out from noise or distractions; alternatively they can go for a walk and talk in the garden, which can boost their concentration and creativity. The desk design with no barriers between workspaces encourages everyone to talk to their colleagues and seek advice and support from them.

Creaseys are supporting the Young Enterprise charity in the West Kent region by helping local Schools with the finance side of their Young Enterprise Companies. The opportunity to be involved is open to the Assistant Account level which currently includes eight team members. The team attend the local Schools participating to give them an overview of basic accounting principles, assist them with the Young Enterprise on-line bookkeeping system, and review monthly finance reports. On Finals Night, Creaseys also judge and sponsor the West Kent Finance Cup. This is an opportunity for Creaseys trainee accountants to share their knowledge and experience, sometimes even returning to the school where they studied their A Levels. They also support local Schools by attending Careers Fairs and providing students with information about how to become an Accountant and the different qualifications available. The flagship of Creaseys' community initiatives is their ‘Charity of the Year’.  They choose charities that are local and that help and support people in and around Tunbridge Wells. This year their team voted to support Nourish Foodbank, their aim is that “No one need be hungry in Tunbridge Wells”. The team arranges fund-raising activities for the charity, and helps out whenever they can throughout the year e.g. the team wrote easy recipes using tinned and dried goods that will go into the food packs that Nourish provide.
