As practice we place a strong emphasis on staff welfare. In addition to the expected statutory requirements, our members of staff enjoy flexible working arrangements, including being able to work from home and fit work around family and other commitments. Our staff enjoy a relaxed informal social scene with post-work gatherings, sports matches and trips away. Every year, the practice staff enjoy a relaxing weekend away. The trip offers staff not only to unwind but also offers an educational slant, with locations chosen to be of architectural merit. Previous locations include the Norman Foster design Millau Viaduct in the south of France, the German capital Berlin, and recently we viewed the works of Santiago Calatrava in the beautiful city of Valencia.
Our celebrated annual whisky tasting takes place every Autumn, and offers staff and clients an opportunity to sample, learn about and appreciate the intricate subject of whisky.

Ellis + Moore are members of the Institution of Civil Engineers approved training scheme and integrate training into the working day. The practice actively encourages and supports graduate engineers as they prepare to sit their Chartered Professional Review.
