What is it like to work for Johnston Carmichael LLP

Each piece of work given to a staff member is formally reviewed by a more Senior Manager, thereby providing very regular feedback. Appraisals are carried out twice yearly for all staff, ensuring that all employees know what is expected of them, and receive feedback on the macro level.

Sometimes the simple ideas which have stood the test of time are the best, so the company place great emphasis on their appraisal process. Appraisals take place twice in the year, and focus not only on an assessment of performance and areas for development, but also on engagement and career potential. Technical and soft skills are assessed by reference to 'Career Maps' - freely available documents which lay out the requirements for staff at each of seven levels within each of their professional practice functions. Every appraisal is read by a representative from the HR team, and one from the Training and Development team, so that support can be given on an individual level to the appraiser as well as the appraisee.
Wellbeing plays out in many ways. The company look after their employees' physical health by promoting discounts on gym membership, an inter-office football tournament, sponsoring staff to play numerous rounds of golf and run numerous marathons and other races, and their cycle to work scheme. Employees' mental health is supported by their exceptionally flexible approach to work, which is manifested both through a relaxed approach to working around staff members' other commitments, through flexi time and flexi leave, to the opportunity to renegotiate working hours regardless of family circumstances.
