Our Background

Our Ethos

8 Acres firmly believes that business is business. However, the way you conduct yourself in business is vital…

When 8 Acres Group was being incorporated we decided to set the ethos very early on, culture is the most important element of any functioning organisation. Prior experiences and gut instinct were telling us to do things differently.

We had the luxuries of boldness, freedom and a truly blank canvass on which to create a unique organisational culture.

Whether our people or our partners, our relationships are two-way contracts, we will stand up and be counted and we expect the same in return. One thing we make no attempt to do is remove the hard work, if that is what someone is after, it’s probably best they work elsewhere.

We do not take the responsibility of employing people lightly. We put every effort into providing a nurturing, productive environment, personalised with clear expectations.

In the early days, once it was recognised what 8 Acres was doing and how we were doing it, like-minded individuals soon wanted in. Those that joined brought ambition, drive and original thought with them.

In fact this led to some of the Groups early profitable investments. Proof of concept doesn’t come any better than that!

We always enter into something for the right reason, logic will get you to the right answer. You won’t always like it but you just need to understand it
