We offer a full career path
for sharp minds

We offer many career paths and opportunities. We have associates, senior associates and partners. Each role has a clearly defined competency framework to enable you to decide whether applying for promotion would be the right decision for you at any given time.

We recognise that not everyone will wish to or will have the qualities necessary to become a partner within the firm. Our flexible career structure means that you can have a fulfilling career within the firm without necessarily becoming a partner.
