A company on the move

The good things

Hames Sharley is moving from first generation ownership and is actively addressing many historical issues ranging from discipline silos, quality of workplace, diversity and inclusion and pure passion for design. These areas are being transparently led by a management team that is open, communicative and generally leads by example. Positive change is ongoing and obvious. Its a great team and a very supportive team with help and advice always available.
