Life At Mazars

Strong values have been at the heart of our organisation since its creation. They guide us in our daily actions, providing a common base of values that all Mazars’ partners and teams share and respect.

Integrity – Ethical and moral rigour guide how we work and assist our clients.

Responsibility – We treat our clients’ challenges as our own and we care about how our work may affect our communities.

Diversity and respect for individuals – Looking beyond borders and cultural differences, we make respect for the individual and sharing the cornerstone of all human relations. United in diversity, we see our capacity to listen and our open-mindedness as a true lever for innovation.

Technical excellence – Technical excellence is one of the founding principles applied at every level in the Mazars Group. This constant search for the highest standards of quality leads to client satisfaction, improvement in business lines and staff development. It is also the best guarantee of our independence.

Independence – We always think independently, and in our roles as auditors and advisors we always act independently.

Continuity – As new faces come and go, as one generation hands over to another, our relationships, experience and knowledge survive. We learn from the past, but look to the future.

We are committed to contributing to the communities of which we are part and more generally to society. We serve society through:

  • our work for our clients;
  • our thought leadership initiatives;
  • our corporate responsibility and environmental programmes;
  • our support for social mobility and diversity;
  • our charitable trust.

Mazars Community days are the foundation of our corporate social responsibility programme. Teams from across the UK offices get involved in spending a day away from the workplace to work for over 30 charities and good causes.

Supporting our communities and managing our impact on the environment are at the heart of our values and fundamental to who we are as a firm. We also know from our employee feedback that having the chance to participate in various projects is something that is fulfilling and thoroughly enjoyed.

Our corporate responsibility programme encompasses:

  • Mazars Days – where teams spend a day away from the office supporting a project based in the local community.
  • Mazars Charitable Trust (MCT) – the firm contributes around 2% of its profits to MCT to be used for good causes.
