Employee Benefits

At Rutherford Cross you will be rewarded with an above market rate base salary and very competitive commission scheme.  We offer a car allowance, pension and other benefits making it all round a very motivational comp package. On top of this we have a discretionary finish at 12.30pm every Friday.  What’s not to love?


We respect and appreciate that everyone is different.  We aim to create an inclusive culture for all our staff to feel comfortable.  We are a member of ENEI (Employers Network for Equality & Inclusion) which keeps us informed on all aspects of DE&I.


When you start you get a new laptop and iPhone to allow you to work remotely. We want you to thrive in the best environment, so we’ve committed to also keeping our city centre offices for any days you want to escape the house!

Career Progression

At Rutherford Cross you will be assigned a mentor who will help you drive your career on.  We will listen to your goals and help you work towards them, whether that’s managing a team or building your network.


When you join us, you will be given two paid volunteering days per year.  We support many charities that are close to our heart with the Group matching donations on special fundraising days.


The health and wellbeing of our team is so important to us. We create internal competitions and challenges to help everyone stay active and healthy. We have run mindfulness sessions and yoga classes, and encourage meditation to help stay balanced.


We are passionate about Learning & Development.   The market changes quickly, so it’s important to stay ahead of the curve.  We have courses delivered by the best in the sector as well as running external training with specialists such as former FBI negotiators!


We love team building and bringing everyone together.  We have high-flyer events you won’t want to miss such as speedboat pub crawls, golf days, visits to Michelin star restaurants, team away-days and spa trips. 


You will have access to the wider Group’s network which includes some of Scotland’s top decision makers.  We run established and well-attended event series for the finance community from newly qualified to CFO, and you’ll be encouraged to get involved to grow your own network.
