"A friendly and dynamic firm."

  • The firm is non-hierarchical and has a very friendly culture.
  • The training on offer is well structured and trainees are provided with plenty of support.
  • The firm has flexible hours and employees are able to work from home.
Cons: 
  • RPC doesn't have the name recognition of some of its competitors.
