Based from a beautiful home office in Hammersmith, the owners put on a free lunch for their team on a daily basis and they have a ping pong table where office tournaments regularly take place. The house is also used for regular fashion shoots which can be quite exciting, albeit these do not disturb the office.
They are a charming, friendly bunch of people who work well together and are looking forward to welcoming the next new member of their team.
You will also have the full support and encouragement of the Director and his team to complete your Part III studies, just as 2 people in the office are currently.
