Our approach is also based on exceptional knowledge. Even for a Top 25 firm with almost 40 partners, we have a surprising number of specialists, who each have a comprehensive knowledge of their chosen sector. So whether you’re a not for profit organisation, a UK or international business or a private client, you’ll be supported by with people who have exactly the right expertise, experience and enthusiasm.
As a company based in London, much of our business comes from the capital and the South East. Yet we also have a global outlook. We co-founded MSI Global Alliance, specifically to make it easier for our clients to access trusted advisors worldwide. They’ll provide expert knowledge for their jurisdiction in areas such as law and other advisory services, and we can act as a single point of contact, to ensure the service is manageable and clear.
What often surprises new clients is how accessible we are at every level, including our Partners.
Perhaps it’s because so many of our Partners joined the firm as trainees and have worked their way up. They haven’t forgotten the support they had from the outset, the inclusive culture and the encouragement to nurture relationships with clients. It’s ingrained in all of us.
It’s also why we’ve been able to grow steadily and organically – people come to work with us and they stay.
It’s often the same for our clients too. For example, entrepreneurs first come to us with their ideas, which we help become a reality. Then together we watch their concept grow and succeed, all the way through to eventual sale and exit.
Our focus on specialising means you benefit from more meaningful service. We don’t just pass on information and leave you to ponder what it means for you. We give you helpful advice gained from expert knowledge and real world (often first-hand) experience. And because we devote time to getting to know you, that advice will be directly relevant, timely and practical.
Our people are our strength and that is why we are committed to creating a friendly, inclusive culture where every individual has the opportunity to develop and make a real difference.

Our transparency reports provide an overview of who we are, our values, and the policies and procedures we have in place to ensure the maintenance of audit quality.
Values and Policies
A cross-section of haysmacintyre people sat round a table to discuss and define our core values. It wasn’t just a fun way to pass the time; it was a serious exercise to discover what we shared and how it would influence our growth and goals. And most importantly, how we should work with you. We settled on four core values. Here’s what they mean for us and for you:
We are trustworthy and straightforward. Honest, objective and sincere, we comply with and uphold professional requirements and obligations.
We’re communicative and consultative, always sharing ideas and valuing contributions from our team members. We act in an inclusive manner and always trust one another.
We are confident in our expertise, delivery and knowledge. We have the freedom to perform and the independence to achieve our full potential.
We challenge the status quo and champion progress. We search out and embrace new ideas and technology, always looking for new solutions.
We value the difference a diverse workforce brings to the firm and to our clients.
haysmacintyre is committed to treating individuals fairly and rewarding them based on their merits. We are an equal pay employer and do not pay men and women differently for the same or equivalent roles. Within this context we present our fourth gender pay gap report for the year ended 5 April 2021. This report has been prepared in accordance with the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017.
This year we have continued to prioritise work to make the firm an inclusive and welcoming place to all staff and partners. They reported in our latest annual survey that 84% felt strongly that they were able to be themselves at work and 88% agree that haysmacintyre is an inclusive place to work. We are proud that people feel comfortable in our workplace and feel able to be honest and open with their managers. We are not, however, complacent that this will naturally continue and therefore we invest in initiatives to support our on-going development as a firm.
haysmacintyre does not operate in high risk areas and we do not consider any of our activities to be at high risk of slavery or human trafficking. However, we remain diligent to monitor and manage this risk and are committed to tackling modern slavery in our business activities and supply chains.
This statement has been published in accordance with section 54 of the Modern Slavery Act 2015 and sets out the steps that Haysmacintyre LLP (the Firm) has taken to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place in any part of our business activities and supply chains.
As a firm, we recognise that we have a role in protecting the environment in which we operate, as well as the wider global environment. We demonstrate this commitment by using low energy electricity and motion detected light sensors, turning off screens when not in use, using eco-friendly cleaning products, donating or repurposing electrical equipment, encouraging paperless processes wherever possible and implementing robust recycling and waste management processes in our office.
We also offer incentives for staff to travel to work and client sites by bicycle or public transport through our cycle to work scheme, office facilities for showering and storage of bikes, and season ticket loans.
Our specific initiatives can be broken down into four main pillars: Carbon, Waste, Water, and Energy and we detail our current activity and future objectives in these categories.
Our corporate social responsibility (CSR) programme is an important step in ensuring we work with our clients, employees and other stakeholders, to better support our local community and reduce our impact on our environment. We are committed to operating our business in an ethical manner that is both sensitive and responsible with proper regard to our legal obligations and abiding to relevant directives, regulations and codes of practice.
