What makes UNW a great place to work?

When we ask our team members what makes UNW a great place to work, time and time again they say it’s the people that they work with.

Supportive, friendly, progressive, flexible, inclusive, welcoming, approachable, ambitious, caring and fun are just some of the words they use to describe UNW’s culture.

And it’s that unique culture, built on hard work and a commitment to providing the very best service to our clients that sets us apart from others and attracts some of the brightest and most experienced talent to UNW.

Based in the very heart of Newcastle city centre, we are committed to creating a thriving environment in which everyone feels valued and proud of their work. No gimmicks, just strong support and genuine opportunities to develop.

We are currently creating career opportunities across all areas of our business – Audit & Assurance, Tax, Corporate Finance and Accounting Services – at all levels, so if you are looking for a change from the norm, then please view our current vacancies below or email
