Independently owned. Collectively driven.

Why work at Alex Picot Trust?

A healthy work/life balance is one of our core values. Our directors do not encourage overtime, instead we treat our staff as individuals and put an emphasis on valuing outside interests and family commitments.

We have an active community engagement programme including the Jersey Marathon and Jersey Swimarathon, we also have a social committee that organises a number of social events to get us together outside the office during the year.

Each administration team has its own dedicated bookkeeper and accountant working as part of the team. We have a high proportion of accountants/staff ratio which reflects the importance we place on this skill set in our business.
