About Barnett Waddingham

Founded in 1989, Barnett Waddingham has grown to become a leading independent UK professional services consultancy at the forefront of risk, pensions, investment and insurance. From small beginnings with just 20 people, we are now a team of over 1,270 people in eight offices. 89 are partners, each delivering on our values and our promise, ensuring the highest levels of trust, integrity and quality. We act as a trusted partner for a wide range of clients in both the private and public sectors – this includes almost 25% of FTSE 100 and over 15% of FTSE 350 companies.

Our primary focus continues to be providing the personal, quality, tailored approach that has driven our success and has led to our high level of client retention. We do not believe that there is a ‘one size fits all’ solution – you shouldn’t expect a standard tick box response. We are free to recommend tailored solutions and impartial advice in your best interests and are always looking to find a better way.

We are keen to promote the development of professional standards for all employees. By taking time to appreciate the importance of wellbeing and the impact it has on performance levels. We therefore provide staff the right tools to help them complete their exams including financial support, mentoring and study leave. Our flexible working approach, known as WorkSmart, allows our people to work at both home and office, balancing their preferences and ensuring our clients receive the best possible service.

We also cater our total rewards packages to offer adjusted hours and flexible working patterns. Our total rewards packages allows you to create tailored benefit packages that work for you – for example, buying and selling holiday, gym membership, dental and private health care.
We encourage individuals to work collaboratively, share ideas and learn from each other – working together to achieve our common goals. Our future success depends upon our people and we are exceptionally proud of their loyalty and commitment to delivering a quality, efficient client service.

I particularly enjoyed these smaller sessions, as it gave the graduates an opportunity to chat with us and tell us about their experiences at BW so far; as someone who is due to graduate next year, this was especially useful....
