Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

what our people say about us

A really chilled and friendly place to work and be part of a down-to-earth team. An encouraging space that supports everyone to achieve their full potential, with great support from the leadership team.

My journey with the business has been fun whilst also giving me the progression and challenge I desire. I have developed a strong skill set that allows me to deliver effectively at a senior level whilst also being supported by the Partners.

Altum has given me everything I was looking for when I decided to make that move; I am in close contact with the Executive Team, who give me full autonomy over my own work while providing support and advice when I need it. The supportive culture runs right through the company, with everyone working hard to help each other succeed. 

I have thoroughly enjoyed my time so far at Azura Search. The inclusive and professional environment of the business, coupled with the excellent Senior Management team has helped me develop a strong skillset that allows me to deliver great results.

Azura is a fantastic place to work. The culture that Melanie Clark has built is collaborative, supportive, and hard-working, and it is a pleasure to work with a high-performing team of colleagues who all drive toward collective success.

During my time at Azura Search, I have felt supported and fulfilled in my role. The team and Partners enable me to feel challenged and rewarded alongside a clear direction for my career progression. As a team, we truly are collaborative and work with incredible clients.

I was one of the first employees hired by Altum and have been here ever since. What initially drew me to the company are the same factors that have kept me here: I was struck by David and Ed's collaborative and professional demeanour. This culture has remained as the business has expanded. I also wanted to work with colleagues that value honesty and integrity, but still motivated employees to achieve at a high level. It has been a pleasure to be a part of Altum's journey, which has included international growth, new offices, and new disciplines.

It was important to me when moving back to the UK that I was part of a people-orientated business and Altum lived up to that expectation. Management are transparent with the strategy and direction of the organisation and that allows everyone to be behind it. The Altum Foundation is also something that aligns with my values and taking part in the Altumate Experinece to raise money for Street Child this year was a real highlight.
