Who We Are
Proud of our past, focused on our future
Our clients mean everything to us, but we can’t achieve anything without you.
Our colleagues are our greatest asset and we’re always looking for brilliant people to come and add value to our ever-growing team. Do you fancy being part of an inclusive and supportive environment where everyone can thrive?
We value you for who you are and what you bring.
We operate out of 17 strategically placed offices and offer a wide range of legal and financial services, making us the largest full-service law firm in the country.
Our rich heritage has seen us make huge strides both in the UK and internationally. But we’re not resting on our laurels.
We have an ambitious growth strategy and need highly skilled experts to deliver it. We need you.
Our culture can be best summed up by our ‘Expert Hand, Human Touch’ approach. You’ll find that reflected in everything we do.
We believe in providing the best quality service for our clients, in an approachable and caring way.
Retain and attract the best
The average length of time our colleagues spend here is over six years, which is above the industry standard.
We value our colleagues and support them in growing their career with us. We push boundaries to make a real difference to our clients and communities.
We’re diverse and inclusive, and we need multi-generational people, from different backgrounds, at different stages of their career. We can’t support our clients and our communities without the very best colleagues.
Whatever stage you’re at in your career, we’d love to hear from you.
Come and join our journey; the best is yet to come.
Chief People Officer
Being part of a business that’s thrived for more than 110 years is something to celebrate.
We’ve come through two world wars, economic ups and downs, and huge changes in society. We emerged as a strong, trusted brand with values that stand the test of time.
We were originally set up in 1912 by Walter Irwin Mitchell, whose focus was almost entirely on criminal law.
By the 1980s, our work focused mainly on personal injury. Our colleagues, including our Group CEO Andrew Tucker, were working on some of the most high-profile cases in the country, including the Zeebrugge ferry and British Airtours Boeing 737 disasters.
Through the 1990s and into the new millennium, we rapidly expanded across the country with tactical mergers and acquisitions. By 2007, we had offices in London, Leeds, Newcastle, Manchester and Glasgow.
We continue to acquire and merge with high-quality firms. This has helped to cement our reputation as market leaders in personal injury and grow our reputation amongst corporates and institutions and private affluent and wealth management clients.
We know who we are, where we’re going and we always strive for better for our clients, colleagues, and communities. Whatever happens in an ever-changing world, our approach will stay the same. It’s who we are and we’re proud of it.
Who We Are
We are a great place to work.
Since we were founded, we’ve helped over one million individuals and businesses navigate life’s ups and downs. We couldn’t have done it without the hard work of our legal and financial advisors, and the colleagues that support and promote what makes us special.
Our clients are at the heart of everything we do, but we can’t support their unique needs without our experts. We strive to make a positive impact to each through living our values and our DNA. With over 3,000 colleagues and many consecutive years of growth, we’re all part of a successful business with big plans to deliver.
Our commitment to being different goes further than the law. We work hard to make a positive impact in the communities we serve and support our people to achieve and grow.
We deliver success that’s built on a relationship of trust and we work flexibly to suit different needs at different times.
With your help, we will grow together.
The Roles We Have To Offer
A role to suit you
Because we offer such a wide range of services, we have roles to suit many unique skill sets. Whatever your specialism, we have a place for it.
To support so many varied clients, we need the very best solicitors, legal teams and financial planners. But we can’t succeed without our non-legal colleagues too, including IT, marketing, accounting, operations, and more.
Whether you’re talking to potential clients at our contact centre, crunching numbers in our finance team or arguing a case in the Supreme Court, you belong to one big team.
Learning and developing
When you start a career with us, it’s a two-way commitment. If you’re dedicated and driven we’ll help you develop, whatever your role.
We provide on the job training and external training to ensure you have the best opportunity to progress.
Many of our partners started as trainee solicitors, so promotions are a way of life here. We offer graduate opportunities ranked in the Top 100 by The Times and The Guardian.
Our training contracts and work placements could be the perfect start to your career.
One team working together
In September 2021 we launched our human touch campaign. It focused on the emotional transitions our clients go through and the role our colleagues play in supporting them.
We created a marketing campaign that was made by the most inclusive production team ever. It's the perfect example of the difference you could make for both our clients and our communities.
