The county’s first Cambridgeshire County Day was held to celebrate her Majesty the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee and showed off the best parts our county has to offer.
Price Bailey sponsored the event and used it as an opportunity to connect with school leavers and showcase the wide variety of career opportunities available at the firm.
The firm expects to hire over 100 people in several disciplines over the next 12 months to help it realise its growth plans.
Price Bailey was recently officially recognised by the Best Companies survey 2022 as one of the best companies to work for in the UK, being described as ‘Outstanding’. Best Companies independently surveyed staff at Price Bailey across a wide range of workplace factors.
Commenting on the firm’s upcoming recruitment plans, Nadia Khan, a partner at Price Bailey who sits on the Board and oversees the firm’s HR function, said, “Our aim is to position ourselves as the employer of choice for those seeking a well-established and forward-thinking mid-tier firm.
In 2022, our people rated us as ‘outstanding to work for’. We were one of the first professional services firms to offer truly flexible working through our ‘smart working’ approach and can provide the opportunity to work with varied and entrepreneurial clients.
Together with giving people accountability and ownership, we regularly benchmark our salary and reward packages to ensure our propositions are competitive, if not market-leading. In addition, we’ve recently launched a new Wellbeing Agenda to ensure that our people’s mental and physical health is prioritised. Our approach is to continuously improve our strong people focus and ensure that our people are happy and well looked after.”
The event was held at the July Course at Newmarket Racecourse, and Price Bailey also sponsored the 15:10 Price Bailey Fillies’ Novice Stakes at Newmarket which was won by Midnight Moll, ridden by Kieran Shoemark and trained by Ed Walker. Price Bailey is a big supporter of Newmarket Racecourse and regularly attends meets.
The royal icing on the cake was the special appearance from the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, who were greeted by cheers and met and chatted with many people attending the event.
The event was organised by the Lord-Lieutenant of Cambridgeshire, Mrs Julie Spence OBE QPM. Commenting on the day, the Lord-Lieutenant said, “Cambridgeshire County Day is unique; it has never happened before and will never happen again in the same format. The day is filled with exciting showcases of the best of our county, and we want it to be accessible, relevant and engaging for everyone in the community. Young people will be given a platform to learn about, be inspired by and connect with the people and organisations that make this county so special.”
Price Bailey has several career opportunities and roles, from trainees to experienced people. For more information, you can visit our careers page or speak to the firm’s Talent Acquisition Manager, Duncan Crooks.
