“I am proud that Respect & Inclusion is a subject that's taken seriously at the highest levels within the firm.”

Nicola Little, Learning and Development Manager

“For me, Respect & Inclusion is not about a policy statement; it's about what we do in the business day to day, actions and not words.”

Julia Lowe, Partner

“Higgs & Sons has not shied away from changing attitudes. We do not want to stand still or simply take the route of least resistance and will strive to be innovative in our approach and exceed expectations.”

Beverley Scriven, Head of Compliance

“I firmly believe that Respect & Inclusion is about empathy with our people, regardless of personal characteristics, their background, their position in the firm or any other factors.”

Paul Hunt, Managing Partner.

“It is important for us to be aware that diversity is not simply about advancing the interests of certain groups (as important as that might be). It is also about fostering an environment where our individual differences and contributions are recognised and respected.”

Simon Bond, Partner

“Working within an environment where everyone is valued for who they are and what they bring to the organisation, helps encourage and expand the skills, knowledge and experience of the firm as a whole. Having a diverse team of people brings new ideas and different strengths and perspectives which in turn helps to meet the diverse needs of our clients.”

Steve Chaplin, Financial Controller

“Respect & Inclusion is an appreciation that we all bring different qualities, different perspectives, different cultures and different experiences to the table, and that this diversity should be embraced, valued and respected to ensure each and everyone of us has the opportunity to reach our full potential.”

Amy Brokenshire Associate, Employment

“I still remember my headmaster telling me “life would be boring if we were all the same”. We are all different, which is great as long as we are all treated equally. It may be easier said than done, but it is what we are genuinely trying to achieve here at Higgs.”

Susheel Gupta, Partner
