Our demands on you are high. You will work hard and be rewarded for your ambition and commitment.
It is important to us that the reward for working at Deacons is not just financial. It is also about job satisfaction – the satisfaction of dealing with challenging tasks, working on cutting edge projects, thinking through problems, working with great colleagues, having a mentored and structured career progression and a sensible work-life balance.
We will review your compensation and benefits annually. For a trainee solicitor, these may include the following:
Our employees are the most important asset of the firm. We provide many other fringe benefits which reflect the respect we hold for our people and our desire to make the firm a comfortable and rewarding place to work.
Lawyers are individuals and our experience is very much that different practice areas suit different personalities. Deacons is a full-service law firm with 18 practice areas.
We have a strong business and high standards. We want our people to succeed and to grow professionally and we have the depth of practice to provide opportunity for growth for all our lawyers.
This is one of the strengths of the firm.
The lawyers in our teams work hard together, share problems and support each other. We believe in providing an environment where a strong esprit de corps and friendships build up naturally.
Depending on the scope and the scale of a project, we can accommodate our clients’ needs with great flexibility and assemble the right team to work together with our clients. Helping our clients in proactive ways and with a strong service ethos is an important part of our job satisfaction at Deacons.
Our community involvement doesn’t stop with business though – we put considerable effort into our charitable endeavours, including our Deacons Cares programme. There is also a wide range of internal networks and communities you can get involved in, including Deacons Social Circle, interfaith working groups and more.
