Employment at Linley & Simpson

We recognise that the key to our success is our people and that it is the skills of our staff which set us apart from our competitors. We aim to be a 'first class' employer offering a 'first class' service to our customers.

With more than 150 staff working across our branches, we are committed to providing a work environment that enables our staff to have a positive experience at work. We have been in business since 1997 and are proud that staff that joined us when we opened are still with us today -testament to the fact that we are dedicated to looking after our staff and providing them with the opportunity to progress and thrive in their careers with us.

Results from our recent employee engagement survey show that 88% of our staff are proud to be part of Linley & Simpson with 98% determined to give their best effort at work every day. This is reflective of the environment and culture we aim to create for our workforce where staff feel that they are an integral part of the company working towards a common goal.

Learning and development

We ensure our staff receive the best training and career development opportunities. Our training strategies allow staff to fulfil their potential and we work closely with them to develop their skills and expand their knowledge at the same time increasing their opportunities for promotion and career progression within Linley & Simpson.

Some of our learning and development initiatives include:

  • Apprentice Scheme. To date, we have taken on 6 apprentices all of whom have gone on to secure full time jobs with us.
  • Active promotion of ARLA and NAEA qualifications which are fully funded by the company.
  • 3 day induction programme for all new employees.
  • Training frameworks specific to each role.
  • Management succession planning and promotion from within. The majority of our Branch Managers started out working as negotiators or administrators proving that we reward ambition.
  • Mentoring.

Staff health and well being

Linley & Simpson are keen to help our staff maintain a healthy work life balance and aim to provide a working environment which promotes employee wellbeing and good health. Initiatives we have developed to help us achieve this include:

  • Flexible working arrangements
  • Regular 1:1's to allow us to connect with and listen to our staff
  • Staff are given a ½ day holiday on their birthday
  • We are closed Sundays and Bank holidays.
  • Give as You Earn - gives employees the opportunity to donate a fixed sum each month to a charity of their choice, with money taken from their salary before tax is applied
  • Volunteering
