Our people are what make Nicholsons great. It is all well and good having a lovely office with some cheeky perks, but without the right people we wouldn’t be where we are today. To keep us heading in the right direction, we need to hire the right people who embody our values, and continue to make Nicholsons a place that works for everyone and help team members be the best versions of themselves.

We reward our colleagues with a lovely place to work, loads of perks and the chance to achieve their potential; with plenty of opportunities for personal development. It doesn’t matter if you’ve never worked in an accountancy before, what does matter to us is that you take pride in what you do, treat people how you expect to be treated, and you are willing to learn.

We are all about building a workplace for the future here at Nicholsons. We believe in equal opportunities, and we celebrate diversity. We are an inclusive workplace where everyone is welcome, everyone can be natural, and everyone can be the best versions of themselves.
