At Portland, we work with some of the best and the brightest – and by that we mean our people and our clients. We want our people to use these opportunities to learn from them, learn new skills and develop them, so that you can continue to grow in your chosen area of expertise.
We’re smart about the way we work – we have great opportunities to work remotely and from the office, so we encourage our people to use these to be effective in the way we collaborate with each other, and to be able to do our best work.
Use these experiences to challenge the way we work and the way we do things. Challenge the thinking – it’s the only way we can use diversity of thought to help grow, and get the best results for our people and our clients.
We are all humans – and we all deserve to be treated with dignity and respect.
We recognise each other when they have achieved a milestone, or a piece of work – credit where its due! But just as importantly – we own our mistakes. We all make them, so own them, learn from them and show us how you can improve as a result. It’s part of the process of how we grow.
We do our best work when we collaborate together – working with smart people to bring the best of the best to deliver successfully for our clients.
Friendships at Portland is what we excel at – we work hard, and play hard together, and we do our best work when we are able to collaborate and grow as friends. Most importantly, we want to make sure everyone feels they are valued for being their true authentic self, and what they can bring toward to the work we do.
Growing is important for everyone – for Portland’s success as a business, but also for our own personal and professional development.
By collaborating with each other, we’re able to explore new avenues and look at how we continue to evolve the work we do.
We’re adaptable to the way the markets and the world we operate in changes around us. We support each other to deliver smart and meaningful work.
And above all – Portlanders are at our best when we continue to learn and develop as people, as a team, and as a business.
Diversity, Equity and Inclusion mission statement
At Portland we get to the point and we’re getting to the point on Diversity, Equity & Inclusion.
We provide a workplace where everyone feels valued and respected and has the opportunity to advance. We actively embrace every positive benefit of DEI and stamp out bias, whether conscious or unconscious.
Portland should be a place where everyone feels comfortable and it’s important that everyone, wherever they’re based or whatever role they do, feels as though they can be their true authentic self.
We also know that we are only at our best when we feel we can be the best version of ourselves at work and at home.
Our goal is One Portland – the best people, great opportunities, working together.
Our benefit package has been developed to ensure our people have the resources and the opportunities to be successful at work and in their personal lives, across our global offices.
We are committed to an employee’s professional and personal development where we regularly reward and promote success, encouraging staff to take on new challenges and responsibilities to aid progression. Personal development and well-being are a key focus; there’s regular training, lunch & learn sessions along with well-being workshops and activities.
Our remuneration packages cover all bases – competitive salaries, profit share, healthcare and wellbeing cover, all come as standard. We have a fabulous selection of benefits tailored to each of our offices and we can talk more about these with you before you come and work with us!
At Portland we take a flexible approach to work and encourage our colleagues to do the same. All of our roles are open to flexible working requests and we will consider all options during our recruitment process. This includes but is not limited to: hybrid working, flexible hours, compressed hours and job sharing.
We have also developed enhanced family friendly policies, including maternity, paternity, adoption, shared parental, fertility treatment, miscarriage and menopause support that reflect localised best practice and legislation. As well as these, we recognise the benefits of supporting our people manage their work life balance, and have introduced an international working policy.
