Working at Frettens
At Frettens, we take employee satisfaction seriously, we don't just pay lip service to it.
Every year, we ask our team to take part in an annual independent survey. It's completely anonymous, results are shared with the whole team, and it helps us to continually improve our working environment.
Best Companies, the organisation behind the Sunday Times Awards, carry out the survey for us and this year, have named us as 'one to watch'.

A relaxed working environment, with flexible working options, makes Frettens a great place to work.
Trust and Freedom
My Colleagues are supportive, knowledgeable, and fun to be around, creating a good working atmosphere.
I feel I am given the trust and freedom to perform my role in the best way I see fit.
Empathy and understanding of the work life balance. Being approachable and feeling secure and appreciated.
The people, the morals and values. The balance in age groups and personal back rounds along with lovely office space, great managers and of course a great MD. They have been very understanding to a previous personal issue I had which required some time off and they were great, there was no pressure at all... even sent me flowers. They also have great company benefits such as private health care and your birthday off as an extra day holiday. Genuinely love working at Frettens.
Investment in IT Infrastructure
Investment in IT infrastructure giving you the tools to do the job on a day to day basis. Excellent support from IT, Reception, Business Development and HR. Supportive environment between fee earning and support team members. Time taken to report on progress of business and to explain what is required on the billing front personally by senior partner.
The welcome I received when I started and caring and friendly way everyone has supported me. Also the brilliant training given throughout and the way you can ask for help if required.
Progressive, modern, friendly firm in a sector that often only pays lip service to progress. Good firm, good people and good clients.
Family atmosphere. Most people really do care about each other and the work we do.
There is a real focus and sense of all working together for a common aim.
Happy and friendly environment where everyone works well together and everyone is treated the same no matter what their pay is.
The people who work for Frettens make it a great workplace.
The community, the drive, the technology, not feeling like a small cog in a big machine.
The partners and staff, who are an excellent team. Their collective efforts to be friendly, yet professional towards clients is spot on! Couldn't really ask to work with such an amazing group of people.
