The rollout of our Career Pathway program has seen the introduction of new tiers to our progression including Senior Associates, Senior Solicitors and Executive roles. Due to these new titles, we are delighted to announce that several of our hardworking team members have transitioned into new roles that represent their current status and give them the platform to take the next steps in their career over the coming years. These are significant milestones for our employees, highlighting the value we place on the contributions of every individual within our firm.

That’s why our Career Pathway platform provides clear guidance and support at every stage, ensuring that all staff members have access to the resources and opportunities they need to succeed.
