Our Ethics

Altus Partners Ethics and Values - underpinning everything we do

How we conduct ourselves both internally and externally is critical to our working ethic and how we approach our work.

  • We have INTEGRITY

We aspire to be trusted by all those with whom we interact – by showing professionalism and integrity in our dealings with clients and candidates, by treating our clients, candidates and colleagues with openness and sincerity, and by always being honest with ourselves as to the standard of our conduct. We research, we consider, and we apply our knowledge correctly before each new undertaking. This, combined with well-honed expertise in our specialist fields with broader, generalist thinking, provides a view with real candor.


As a business and as individuals, we can only succeed if we are willing to be responsible for all our actions. We take ownership of the tasks we undertake, we show resourcefulness, we acknowledge difficulties but focus on creating the solutions, and we strive to be self-aware as there is always room to improve.

  • We are POSITIVE

There is much satisfaction and enjoyment in what we provide, and we love what we do. By embracing this, we will go the extra mile and deliver even greater performance, and with a smile on our face and a collaborative spirit, we will inspire and empower our colleagues and external stakeholders.


Originality makes us stand out, both as members within the team and to our clients and candidates. Therefore, we remain forward-thinking and adaptable in the face of new ideas, and constantly eager to evolve personally, and as a company. To claim to be ‘best in class’, we must engage intellectually with our chosen fields of expertise and show the passion behind our profession. We complement trusted principles with a willingness to innovate.

  • We remain HUMBLE

Regardless of what we may achieve, we always remain humble out of respect to our clients, candidates, and colleagues, and in acknowledgement that there will always be challenges ahead and new opportunities to better ourselves.
