What does working at Shorts look like?

The other stuff

We’ve created an environment where our team feel supported, developed and happy; a blend of interesting and challenging work, with time to contribute their own ideas, concentrate on personal development whilst ensuring a healthy life balance, both in and out of work.

We look after our clients really well, but we also look after our team, because their welfare and development are equally important.

When not at work, how we spend our time is extremely valuable for everyone, and it was with that in mind, that our zero overtime policy was created. Fundamentally, we do not expect any of our team to work more than their basic weekly hours.

Although often seen as quite unique within the industry, we monitor the average overtime per employee to ensure we remain on track.

Core hours and zero overtime policies mean that our team gets to manage their time better – both in and out of the office.

We are really proud of our record of team development and have supported many individuals with their progression within the firm.

We understand that when people are busy, working on day-to-day client deadlines, focusing on personal development can sometimes be overlooked.  So, we ensure that our team has the time to focus on their own career development too.

Our team regularly takes part in local and national fundraising events and everyone has the opportunity to take part in one volunteering day each year

There are opportunities to take part in

  • Sporting events, tournaments, and challenges
  • Cake sales
  • Christmas events
  • Local charity collections
