While we strive to make an impact through the law, we also strive to make an impact as an employer. We are committed to equal opportunities and the nurture of equality and diversity in our workplace.
A diverse workforce means a variety of thought, more creativity and innovation, and allows us to push the boundaries of the law.
When we recruit, we focus on qualifications, skills, and relevant experience. We focus on what will make you a great member of the firm. We employ, train, and promote our colleagues regardless of the gender they identify as, their ethnic or racial origins, their relationship status, nationality, beliefs, age or disability, or any other arbitrary grounds. Everyone can make a difference, and these factors do not affect that.
We monitor the composition of our workforce and engage in positive action to ensure we are constantly moving towards fair representation of all corners of society in our firm.
Equal opportunity and workplace diversity about good employment practices, but also, the efficient use of our most valuable asset, our people. Every colleague has a responsibility to implementing our equality and diversity aims.
We are proud to be supporting the 10,000 Black Interns programme, alongside a number of other firms across 24 different sectors. The programme aims to transform the horizons and prospects of young Black people in the UK by offering paid work experience across a wide range of industries, as well as world-class training and development.
