Peeps


Our people are far and away our most cherished asset at True. Since we opened our doors in 2011, we’ve gathered around 40 incredibly talented individuals who bring with them a diverse pool of skills and personalities.

We have deliberately set out to create a work environment and a culture that enables work/life balance, genuine fun and collaboration. We’ve jokingly been referred to as the Hotel California because people who come here seldom ever leave. We must being doing something right.

What does this mean for clients? Well simply it’s stability, knowledge, guardianship and let’s not ignore relationships. For anyone thinking about joining us? It’s about creating the most kick-arse place we can so people can do genuinely satisfying and rewarding work with a great bunch of people who are like family.
