Our values, principles and commitments
At Horus our key principles are all about support, diversity, community and commitment. The organisations, projects and teams we support have all been nominated by members of the Horus team.
We believe strongly in supporting our clients, supporting each other, and supporting communities. We work as a collaborative, unified team and support all our staff with personal development plans. Our people are the heart of the business, and we are very proud to have a diverse workforce in terms of age, gender, and ethnicity.
We adhere to the strongest ethics in whatever we do, and are fully transparent and legally compliant in whatever territory we operate in. The services we offer our clients are always proportionate – we never over-sell and always seek to provide a balanced, relevant solution, whatever the problem might be.
We also believe in putting something back into the community, and as well as regular, long-term commitments such as supporting local sports clubs, we occasionally commit to special one-off fundraisers if we feel strongly about supporting a good cause.

Mind mental health charity
In April 2021 we celebrated our 15th year and also opened our newest office in Austin, Texas.
We decided to mark these two events by contributing to something we care about – better mental health. So the entire Horus team are now walking, running, and cycling a ‘virtual’ 4,861 miles – the distance from Oxford to Austin – and for every mile covered, Horus is donating £1 to MIND. Follow our LinkedIn page to keep up with the team’s progress to reach the 4,861 miles.
We continue to support Mind’s life-changing work with monthly donations.
Intelligence Corps Rugby Team
Our strong links at Horus with the Army’s Intelligence Corps and our passion for sport and supporting it, makes sponsoring this particular good cause an obvious choice.
The British Army’s Intelligence Corps established a rugby club – ICRFU – in 2004. It competes in the Army Corps’ League as one of the smallest corps to do so, and has 60 registered players, either serving in the UK or deployed on operations across the world. Due to the small size of the intelligence corps, the club has struggled to raise a women’s rugby side, however, four corps ladies play in other combined teams and have reached the level of Army and Combined Service representation. The ICRFU has also had success in the inter-services World Cup, in the 15s league, and in the Corps Rugby 7s.
Bromyard Football Club
Horus is a proud sponsor of Bromyard Football Club, a local club in Herefordshire which was initially set up for junior and youth players of the beautiful game.
Established by a group of parents in 2011, with help from players families and friends plus support from local firms and businesses like Horus, the club has now expanded to include older players, with teams starting at under 7s and going all the way through to veterans. The next aim is to establish a series of girls and ladies’ teams and to improve the club’s facilities in the process.

The Story Museum is an unusual museum located in the heart of Oxford, celebrating the power of stories to teach and delight.

The museum stages imaginative exhibitions and exciting programmes of performances, events, workshops, clubs and skill-building courses, to engage people of all ages in great stories.

Oxford University Rugby Football Club (OURFC)
OURFC was founded in 1869 and has played a significant role in the development of rugby and the various major changes the game has undertaken since its formation 125 years ago. Oxford remains a career-starting club for Internationals including most recently Tom Mitchell (England 7’s Captain) and Will Rowlands (Wales) who received his first cap in the 2020 Six Nations.
Oxford has been the home of Horus since 2006 and we are committed to supporting local teams and charities, and we are proud to be a sponsor of the sports club.
