society in which we live is constantly changing and throughout its history Marks

We aim to create an environment at work where people can find time to enjoy what
they do, and our existing flexibility of options enables us to make individual
arrangements with each of our staff to help us achieve this.
In these challenging times we must never allow ourselves to overlook the importance
of taking time to be aware of each other and appreciating the different demands
life places upon each of us.
