We are a global firm spanning 21 offices across four continents working together to make a real difference. Read the story of how Steer grew from humble beginnings: a team of three friends in 1978 working from an office in London’s Covent Garden. Forty years later, we are a truly international business with global reach, insight and capabilities.
Our way of doing things
We have a set of guiding principles that drive everything we do from the smallest detail to the largest project, ensuring we deliver commercially-valuable work for our clients alongside career-enhancing experiences for our staff. These principles define us at the highest level, from how we manage our business to our project delivery.
Our people are our greatest asset. We have many of the most respected experts in their fields, who combine commercial, economic and planning expertise to solve our clients’ most complex questions.
For over four decades we have been proudly independent, controlled and owned by people working within the business. Today this legacy of ownership and empowerment continues.
Our role in helping people, places and economies thrive means that social responsibility is an important part of our culture and values. We relish the opportunity to make a difference whether its through our own efforts or supporting clients to identify the best ways for them to have a positive impact.

At Steer, we actively invest in developing new ideas and ways of working. We encourage our staff to think creatively about their work and how we can help clients maximise opportunities and commercial benefits.
We have won awards that testify to the quality of the work we deliver for our clients and awards that demonstrate our great culture.
