Our Culture

Friendly, relaxed, unstuffy... these are just some of the words used by staff and clients to describe the Rouse working environment. Lots of firms say that, but we really do practice it.

Our offices are diverse: in our non-European sites, local and expat employees work closely together, making for a diverse and multicultural work environment.

When you‘re not meeting clients, the dress code is casual. And, while our team enjoys consistently lower time targets than those at other professional firms, everyone is expected to emulate the work ethic demonstrated by our Executive team.

We want to see our people grow as individuals, which is why we invest in a number of initiatives that nurture and develop their talents.

We run a respected talent management programme and offer a wide range of on-the-job, internal and external training opportunities for all employees.

Senior fee earners and non fee earners, also have the opportunity to travel internationally to conferences and our other offices.
