Our culture

We prioritise quality over quantity and long-term business building over short-term wins. We do not manage by KPIs, and give our people the time and encouragement they need to become experts in their space. We all (partners included) have a monthly meeting with a partner to discuss the month and the priorities ahead, but this is led entirely by you. The foundation of our business is built on some extremely strong, long-term relationships, and this is what we aim for all our consultants to develop. Getting out on meetings with people in your space is encouraged, even (shock horror!) if you do not have an immediate need for them. Everyone at Carisbrook Partners is hands on and we constantly learn from and challenge each other. We encourage a co-operative atmosphere, we do not rank individuals but instead have an office target that we all work towards together. This normally results in an amazing weekend away together to celebrate another good year!

Carisbrook gives me the autonomy to build my business as I see fit with excellent support where and when required whilst doing so in a lively, fun environment.

Our commission structure is an increasing percentage of your annual billings – the more you bill in a calendar year, the higher the percentage you take home. Commission is paid on each placement, so you don’t have to wait until year end to collect. The scheme is variable dependant on what you bring to the table and what you want as a base! It is simple, very competitive and designed for our consultants to be extremely well rewarded for the revenue they generate.
