What you can expect from a career with us

We understand that you are looking for more than ‘just’ a job; you are looking for a satisfying and rewarding career. We can provide you with this.

There are excellent prospects for promotion within the firm and our developing business provides opportunities for career advancement; many of our partners, solicitors and team leaders are former trainees.

We actively encourage staff at all levels to undertake professional development; secretarial and support staff in particular often successfully attain a paralegal or ILEX qualification.

We undertake an annual performance development review which is a structured opportunity for all members of staff to discuss their performance, job, personal development and career aspirations generally. This provides us with an excellent basis upon which to manage the career development and training needs for each member of staff.

Find out what our lawyers and paralegals have to say about the firm’s approach to training and development and career progression:

“The firm is very keen to ensure that all members of staff receive appropriate training on a regular basis and have the opportunity to develop their careers.”

“The firm as a whole have been supportive and encouraged my desire to progress from a secretary to a paralegal and have made the progression as easy as possible.  I was even able to sit my exam in the office with the help of HR which made it less stressful.”  
Katherine Knapman, Paralegal
