Cox & Co. creative minds!

Starting work for the first time can be exhilarating, scary and confusing all at the same time. Things like tax codes, payslips, automatic enrolment, student loans are all terms that you may have heard of but not know what they mean or how you will be affected by them.

That’s where we come in… We’re here to help and to start we have a bunch of information that you may find useful.
