Life at the Canterbury office

 

Our Canterbury and Maidstone offices work as one office across two locations in Kent, the Garden of England. Canterbury is a beautiful city rich in history and heritage. The famous Cathedral at the heart of the city has been a pilgrimage site since the middle ages and a relaxed stroll through the cobbled streets reveals an architectural legacy of historic note. Maidstone, the county town of Kent and centre of the local government, is a bustling town surrounded by picturesque countryside on all sides. As the business capital of the county, Maidstone offers a variety of independent shops and restaurants, while the river Medway runs through the town and provides the ideal spot to unwind with a picnic and watch the world go by.

Our two Kent offices work very closely together with flexibility across both locations to meet the needs of the clients and to support colleagues. Our staff members are friendly, supportive and always willing to help each other. They work as a team and have an active social life, organising regular get-togethers and outings.

Our offices vary in design, but both reflect MHA MacIntyre Hudson’s historic roots and clear focus on the future. Maidstone is a modern, open plan office in the centre of a lively town. The layout of the office means that the teams naturally collaborate effectively, and it is easy to approach anyone with questions. Our office in Canterbury is a recently refurbished, stately looking townhouse within walking distance of the city centre. Lunchtimes can be spent exploring Canterbury’s many winding paths and charming cafes.

With specialists across sectors such as Education, Not for Profit, Healthcare, Manufacturing and Construction, as well as services such as Private Tax, Indirect Tax and Human Capital Advisory, we offer our private and corporate clients the highest level of expertise and service. Due to Kent’s easy transport links to Paris and as a key UK gateway to trading in Europe, many of our clients have international interests and we look forward to continuing our global focus.

We have grown significantly over the last five years and now number nearly 100 people across both offices, ranging from secretaries and support staff to trainees, managers and partners. We have ambitions to expand further and are always keen to hear from individuals who have the drive to help us reach our goals and contribute to our continued success.
