    We value your feedback. Sadly we had to close one of our London office locations earlier this year and were unable to expand the team in our Head Office as we are fully staffed on reception and they have been with us between 4 and 8 years. We take feedback from employees seriously, to this end we have implemented a global employee engagement survey over the last couple of years, all comments are reviewed, and we create a plan of action to address any issues.
