great reasons

Making a difference

We've grown a lot recently, but that doesn't mean we've lost our small company spirit. We're still an agile, friendly company where anyone can make a difference and new ideas are always welcome.

Our values

We apply our values to every aspect of HL, this is no different when it comes to acting as a responsible business. We put the client first, go the extra mile, do the right thing, make it easy and do it better, for our people, our community, the environment, and our clients.

Put the client first. It's their future in our hands. We're relentless in our pursuit to deliver the best client experience - always thinking of how our services can benefit clients, not us.

Make it easy. What we do is serious, but that doesn't mean it needs to be complex. Everything should be easy to access, understand and do - giving our clients confidence to make important decisions.

Go the extra mile. For our clients, and for our colleagues. We focus on what we need to do, then we do it well - taking every opportunity to delight, inspire and reassure.

Do it better. Energetically leading the way, we seek every chance to do things better. And we dare to call out what's not working. Then we fix it.

Do the right thing. Every time. We're fair, honest and upfront. It's why our clients trust us, and how we earn their loyalty. Always admitting our mistakes then putting them right.

Bristol: a great place to be

We're lucky to be based in the heart of Bristol within a stone's throw of the historic harbour.

A buzzing multicultural city with a population of over 400,000, there's always something going on here. From festivals devoted to food, hot air balloons and graffiti to cat pubs and theatres in breweries, it's fair to say Bristol is a unique city. Home to exceptional schools, science museums, art galleries, planetariums, theatres, an abundances of eateries, independent shops, secret bars and nearby countryside, Bristol is a fantastic place for families, young professionals and students alike.

There's plenty within reach of Bristol as well. London is just 120 miles away, but in under an hour you can find yourself in the lush countryside of Wales, Devon or the Cotswolds.

Back in the harbourside, our modern, glass-walled building catches the best of the morning and evening light and lunch hours are often spent on the harbourside with a view of the sailing ships and historic docks.
