Our strategy

The Group’s strategy for growth is centred on international expansion and discipline diversification.

Driving growth through expansion into new geographic locations is key. Our growth is largely organic, with the group only making 3 market-entry acquisitions in its 34 year history. Driving growth through building scale in existing disciplines and the launch of new disciplines ensures there is no shortage of opportunity for development.

Core disciplines

We recruit specialists in most professional areas. These are the core disciplines that we recruit in the majority of our locations. Our larger businesses recruit across many more areas and break down their core disciplines into many different specialist teams.
