Home page Why Cavell Leitch

Your ideas will be encouraged, your input will be valued, and you will grow from being surrounded by others who excel at what they do. You won’t be just coming to us for a career, you will be joining our Cavell family.

We care about your development, how you are rewarded and supported, and we are committed to creating a work/life experience that suits all our people.

In return, the expectation is that you will genuinely care about our (your) clients and be there to make a difference in their lives.

If your values align with ours, we would love to hear from you.

Get in touch


It is important that every one of our team feels supported and enjoys their role, and we know that this is made easier when everyone is on the same page.

That’s why we’ve sought all of our staff’s input to create Cavell’s values. We see the firm’s values as our north star in that they guide all of our decisions and behaviours. Having a sense of our shared values also allow us to readily reward staff who go above and beyond and help keep us all on track in being accountable for our actions.

Our Expertise Real Passionate People

Delight our clients

Clients are the lifeblood of Cavell’s business. We go over and above to ensure their experience is nothing short of exceptional and that our expertise can be counted on.

One Cavell Leitch

Yes, we are a group of individuals, but we are also a team working towards a common goal so there’s no room for egos. We share information and resources, and we listen to and lift each other up. Because when you show up and bring your best, others will too.

Find a better way

Don’t rest on your laurels – be curious and creative. Speak up. Just because it’s what we’ve always done doesn’t necessarily make it right. Innovation happens when we keep questioning, learning and striving to do it better, simpler and smarter.

Do the right thing

We do the right thing, not the easy thing. Sometimes it’s about leaning into a difficult conversation, other times it’s about having a clear point of view. It’s this honesty and integrity that helps us be authentically us.


We’re committed to helping our people to be the best version of themselves. Our comprehensive suite of learning and development opportunities includes:

  • Complete induction and onboarding process
  • On the job training
  • Coaching and mentoring
  • Formal training and PD
  • Supporting further study
  • Learning more about leadership and business
  • Presenting at client events
  • Honing business development skills
