We're Employee Owned

In 2023, we achieved a significant milestone by transitioning to a 60% employee-owned company. This exciting development means that our employees, spread across our four exceptional brands, now have a remarkable chance to reap financial rewards from our continued success, with the potential to receive substantial six to seven-figure pay-outs. We firmly believe that our people are the cornerstone of our uniqueness and contribute to making our organisation an outstanding workplace. Therefore, it was an obvious choice for us to embrace the concept of Employee Ownership Trust (EOT) and actively give back to those who have contributed to our achievements.
