Mazars & Me

We want everyone to be rewarded and enriched by their professional life. So we come together to pioneer new ways of working; promoting psychological safety, flexibility with how you work – trusting you to make the right choices for the team, clients and the business – and balance in stimulating modern workspaces. We offer core benefits and then give people the opportunity to tailor extra benefits to suit their individual needs.


Our Nottingham office is located on the Ropewalk in the centre of the town surrounding by a number of other professional service firms. Public transport links means access to the office can be easy by bus, train or tram. Alternatively, there are a number of car parks nearby. The modern office is split over 2 floors with 1 floor of dedicated client meeting or team collaboration space. Hot desking means the ability to sit in teams or to meet people from other service lines. Shops, restaurants and bars are all a short walk from the office meaning lunch, catch ups with other professionals or after work socialising are all just a stones throw away.


Being inclusive is core to our culture at Mazars; we want to ensure everyone, whether in the recruitment process or beyond is fully supported to be their unique self and provided with a level playing field.
