We encourage people to develop in their roles and continuously improve their skills and knowledge, as well as providing them with progression and promotion opportunities.
We provide a variety of training opportunities, including legal updates, webinars and training sessions. We also offer a comprehensive induction for all new starters and a management training programme for all supervisory positions.
For staff keen to gain further qualifications, there are funding opportunities, study leave provision and paid membership fees. We’re advocates of multiple routes to qualification for legal staff, including training contract opportunities, Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx) qualifications and apprenticeships.
If you join us, you’ll receive a wide range of company benefits, including holiday entitlement of 25 days, rising to 27 after two years and then 30 days depending on length of service or promotion to a senior role, plus an extra eight days for bank holidays. Many of our roles have an incremental salary structure in place, meaning your salary progresses as you develop in the role.
We believe in recognising and rewarding our people’s achievements and through our recognition programme, we award employee of the month, customer service awards and long service awards – each year our top achievers from across the company are invited to our annual employee awards ceremony to celebrate their success.
Our other benefits include:
Each office has its own benefits committee that organises discounts and other benefits, and makes sure everyone is aware of what is available to them.
We help our staff to stay healthy and happy by offering a health cash plan that enables you to get money back from visits to the dentist, optician, physiotherapist, chiropractor and other healthcare costs; access to a 24/7 GP service and a 24/7 advice and counselling service; online health resources; plus access to a range of health and lifestyle discounts and offers. We also provide fresh fruit in every office on a regular basis.
Most locations have break-out rooms for staff to sit in, relax or take time out.
There are also Social Committees in each office, which organise events and activities, including a number of sporting activities.
