Our diverse firm
Valuing diversity is at the heart of the Bevan Brittan culture. It’s not about quotas or ticking boxes, we believe embracing diversity enables us to offer the highest standard of services to clients, and to create the best possible working environment for our people. By valuing diversity, our firm is not only fairer, it is stronger, more effective and, ultimately, more successful.
We continually monitor our performance to ensure our people feel comfortable in their working environment, regardless of race or ethnic origin, religion or belief, sex, age, nationality, disability or sexual orientation. We run a firm-wide diversity training programme, and our flexible working and family-friendly policies enable our people to balance their professional and personal lives.
We are committed to developing a progressive, open culture in tune with modern society. We work hard to understand our clients, their business, their culture, and their needs, and we actively seek clients’ input into our partner-led Diversity Working Group.
Our recruitment policy
We have an equal opportunities recruitment policy and try to ensure that all sections of society have access to our recruitment campaigns. We work with a number of organisations and use different methods to ensure we recruit from the widest possible talent pool.
Our local communities
Our partnering programme with local schools and with the College of Law enables students from all sections of the community to experience life in a legal firm. We arrange activities ranging from mentoring and mock interviews to work placements, right across our business.
Diversity beyond Bevan Brittan
Our commitment to diversity does not stop at our doorstep. We require our suppliers to provide us with details of their diversity programmes, and we are actively involved in The Law Society's Diversity and Inclusion Charter.
