A little more about life at CP….



We are challenging grey...  

We are challenging boring. We are challenging status quo. Our people engagement scores are through the roof – our people are fully engaged in everything we do - from how we embrace technology and workplace design to how we create innovative and flexible working patterns that have a positive impact on the service our clients receive and on the lives of our people. Our culture is who we are, and it genuinely shapes our strategy and the experience for our clients. The way in which we operate and the incredible environment we are building is hugely advantageous to those wanting to combine a career in practice with an unrivalled culture and personal growth opportunity. 


We are building a truly modern workplace culture...  


We’ve always believed in trusting our people to make the right decisions for themselves. From how you dress (our only rule is ‘wear something’) to when you work (we have no ‘core hours’) and how often you holiday (we have open holiday). We have just introduced another game-changing element we call ‘Work from Anywhere. Forever’ (WFAF!).  We now give our people the opportunity to work flexibly, and potentially from anywhere, giving our people the trust and accountability to deliver to the required standards.


Play to your strengths, we say. Create a role you’re truly passionate about. Then, work flexibly to design a life that’s right for you. 


Tired of the draining experience in your current audit firm? It’s different here. Read our culture book for yourself  #makelifecount 


What's in it for you... 


At Cooper Parry our mindset is simple. We only do things if we believe we can be No.1.We start doing that by putting our people at the heart of our culture. Why? Pretty simple really… if our people love working here then then they do amazing work. That’s why we offer things like: 

  • Competitive salaries aligned to big firms 
  • Open holidays 
  • No dress code - “Wear something!” 
  • Incredible development and career growth 
  • A truly flexible approach to work balancing working from home, in office or with clients - “Work from Anywhere. Anytime. Forever”.
