What Attracted You to La Fosse?

We ask all of our new starters when they join, 'Why La Fosse?' Here are their unedited responses in full.

BARNABY RANKING
What attracted you to La Fosse?
I was attracted to the size of La Fosse and the fact that it had so consistently been placed within the top 40 companies to work for the past 6 years immediately took my interest, among the many others. Simon La Fosse’s thoughts and techniques on how to run a business in which all employees want to succeed not just for the wages but because they like and support their workplace was a big contributing factor.

CHESTER ALLEN
What attracted you to La Fosse?
La Fosse is a fast growing business and is one best voted environments to work in. These two factors combined made La Fosse very attractive to me. When I came in for the interview and realised the potential to, not only enjoy your work but also make good money at the same time and I thought this is the perfect job for me.

ED BOWER
What attracted you to La Fosse?
The award winning culture was the first thing which grabbed my attention. La Fosse offers an opportunity to work in a rapidly growing company who take pride in differentiating themselves from the rest of the market.

JON PRICE
What attracted you to La Fosse?
I was attracted to La Fosse initially due to the brand, and the people. I’d come up against La Fosse several times and it seemed like the number of clients I worked with were also working with LFA.  I also referenced La Fosse with a number of clients in senior positions and the feedback was very positive compared to other companies I enquired about.
Finally, it was the people – a key consideration for me when moving companies was that I wanted to challenge myself, working with people who could take me to the next stage of my career, and be part of a high-performance culture. I believe I’ve found that in Sam and David, and based on the billing figures for the rest of the business, that certainly ticked the high-performance culture box.

After meeting James, Lily, Claudia, Olivia, and Tony, La Fosse became the number one company on my wish-list as I could see in each of them a warmth, wit, and sense of humor that really matches my own.
