We aim to maintain a high ratio of local to international staff and to provide training and growth opportunities to our local and international staff alike.

Employing women 

We are excited by the prospect of continued growth in existing markets and expansion into new ones, not least because it gives us an opportunity to improve on our gender ratio.

While we accept that we are unlikely to achieve gender parity, we have set an ambitious target to increase the number of women working for us.
