The Trusted Advisor Program enables team members to build their client consulting skills and strengthen existing working relationships.

Real-world experience, support from senior managers and resources are provided to participants so they can become the best possible advisors for our clients.
Working relationships between individuals and their managers are essential to feeling connected and understood in the workplace.
We host 180-degree performance partnering sessions to strengthen these relationships, encourage a better understanding of each other, to give and receive feedback and raise any concerns if needed.
These conversations are casual, which welcomes constructive talk and invites positive change to improve the experience of each team member.
Our internal training programs are included as part of everyone's employment. Programs are delivered via a blend of face-to-face, facilitated online and self-paced learning sessions.

I joined Ashfords in January 2020 as a Client Services Coordinator and am planning to transition into an accounting role when I complete my studies. I feel very fortunate to have partnered with an organisation that encourages and supports my professional development.
