We have a strong commitment towards building a diverse workforce and strive to attract and retain the best people by providing an environment where each individual can develop and build a rewarding career.
We aim to recruit the right team for the job and treat all applicants and employees equally regardless of gender, marital status, race, colour, nationality, ethnic origin, age, disability, sexual orientation, religion or belief. We are champions for inclusiveness and everyone in the firm is respected for the role they play and the contribution of every member of the team is highly valued.
In 2013, we launched an award-winning diversity access scheme to help to get more students from underrepresented groups into the legal profession.
Our Inclusiveness and Diversity strategy includes a range of initiatives and networks for our employees to get involved in:
- LGBT Network & Supporters Group
- Women @ Work
- "the network"
- Career Focus Partnership with Queen Mary University
