     Remuneration
     Hamilton Bradshaw companies offer attractive and
     market comparable salaries. We operate a meritocratic
     remuneration structure where performance is recognised.

     Typically most consultants will earn a generous basic salary
     with a commission structure and will be incentivised through
     bonus schemes.

     Our commission structures reflect our philosophy of awarding
     stellar performance with tangible financial reward. Some of
     our companies offer employee share schemes allowing for
     employees to participate in the success of the business they
     contribute value to.

     A number of our businesses consistently reward their people
     above and beyond financial incentives, for example, travel
     abroad, entertainment and days out and gifts such as iPads.
