A little more about us...

How we do things...

From how we work to where we work – Sillence Hurn are not your typical building consultancy. Flexible working has been at our core since we were founded in 2019. Set up by Alex Hurn to challenge and inspire a traditional industry, we have grown fast due to our energised team and innovative approach.

We are a close-knit team and looking to grow continuously but we’re not planning any hierarchies here. 

We have dedicated sales, marketing, and client service teams who continue to pack our pipeline with variety. We’d say we’re like a corporate onion but without the layers. And fewer layers means our team gets more hands-on experience and can make as much difference as you want. We also offer an EV scheme - great for tax savings!

We know sometimes life can be unpredictable. That's why we have an Employee Assistance Programme in place which is a 24/7 confidential support service for both you and your immediate family. We want to help you give your best in life, and the team are always here for you whenever you need.

Why us?

Relaxed attitude? That’s us. Bring your authentic self to work and forget the formal workwear. If not straight away, save it for our quarterly team days (we like to have fun too!).

Genuine flexible employer? That’s us. Work/life balance is at our core. Home, a café, the office (Southampton or London), your friend’s place, your grandparent’s, the gym – when we say flexible working, we mean flexible working, anywhere you want (within the UK – for now).

Open-minded? That’s us. Whether it's new skills, technology, or types of office snacks – bring your ideas to the table anytime.

Ambitious? That’s us. We have a packed pipeline of projects and fantastic clients so you can focus on what you do best.
