Life at Seven Hills

From regular socials to a keen focus on health and wellbeing,
we make sure there is plenty to enjoy at our riverside home.

GIVING BACK

We actively encourage charitable work and volunteering. From year round fundraising to support for Shelter and Cancer Research, we back good causes and offer one day per year for every member of the team to volunteer for an organisation of their choice.

FLEXIBLE WORKING AND SUPPORT

We offer flexible working, a short term salary advance if needed, and we each have access to Perkbox, for discounts on everything from cinema tickets to car hire.

SEVEN HILLS ACADEMY

Throughout the year we invite great campaigners, entrepreneurs and leaders to visit and share their experiences with us. A brilliant chance to hear from inspiring people about the ideas that drive them.

CHANGEMAKER

Each month we recognise one person who has excelled in their work and contributed to the firm’s mission over the previous few weeks. Nominations are taken from the full team, with the winner awarded a prize worth up to £75.

MILESTONE CELEBRATIONS

We never miss an opportunity to mark a major milestone. Every birthday is celebrated with a cake and early leave, and every anniversary with champagne.

SEVEN HILLS SOCIALS

Each year we put together a vibrant calendar for the year ahead to ensure there are plenty of opportunities to come together as a team. Recent socials have included a darts night at Flight Club, our summer sports day, curry night, as well as our annual start to the year brunch, summer away-day and Christmas party.

FRIDAY FEAST

Food is a big part of life at Seven Hills and we make sure we break bread together every Friday with delicious lunches served from local caterers. We also celebrate the team’s efforts each week with our (in)famous Friday drinks trolley, regular quizzes and of course, Sid the Frenchie!
