We believe we pay above average salaries and bonuses. Base salaries are negotiable and depend on experience. We offer a generous and achievable bonus scheme which is paid monthly with your salary. We can demonstrate how this will be calculated at interview.
We offer so much more than a competitive salary. Standard benefits include 25 days holiday per year and a mobile phone which you can use for personal local calls. We also get one ‘duvet day’ per year which can be used as unplanned annual leave. We all have our birthdays off if it falls on a working day and A&B also provide a pension scheme.
Private medical insurance is included within the package, as are all fees for your relevant subscriptions, CPD and APC training to achieve MRICS/FRICS status.
Is there something else that’s important to you? A higher pension contribution? Adding family members onto your medical insurance? Extra holidays? A specific company car? Please discuss this with us. As an owner managed business, we appreciate the importance of flexibility and meeting the needs of our employees. One of the reasons we have attracted such an amazing team is our flexible approach to building a bespoke package, tailored specifically to you. What do you want out of your next role?
