Working at Shoosmiths
What sets us apart is our approach to the way we work – our working culture. You'll like our open, un-stuffy atmosphere in which you're given the space and the support to thrive.
We work hard, but because of our easy internal communication and a real lack of internal politics, this energy is focused on our clients. That's what's driven our success so far – and we've had a great time doing it.
You'll be in an environment that actively allows you to grow your skills and challenge yourself. And you'll find a refreshing lack of hierarchy, absolutely no pomposity or arrogance – just a recognition that happy, energised individuals are at the heart of our success.
Work-life balance - we actively promote and implement a healthy work-life balance. While we expect you to work hard when you're in the office, we don't want work to dominate your life. If you've done what you need to do, then it's time to go home - there's no 'face-time' at Shoosmiths.
Sometimes the people we want to work here can't conform to a typical nine-to-five day. In these cases, we'll look at flexible working hours to help you fit your job to your life and your life to your job. We're ready to listen to any suggestions from anyone and consider any reasonable request.
Our responsibility - we are committed to corporate responsibility; it forms part of our business plan, and in turn shapes our strategic goals. We pride ourselves on not being overly hierarchical and pretentious; we want Shoosmiths to be a place where you can be yourself and do your best work - learn more about our approach to diversity & inclusion.
