Phil Burns, UK Managing Partner of Clearwater International

Our team agrees that Clearwater International is a great place to work, develop and progress your career.

"Six months in and I have taken on multiple projects, attended a number of external training sessions, as well as corporate events and breakfast seminars. This has been alongside flying to Marbella for a firm-wider summer event with the international offices and white-water rafting with the London team!"

"By working in small teams, I have more responsibility on projects and can make a real difference to potentially life changing events for our clients."
Daniel Hart, Associate at Clearwater International
