Application process

Diversity, equity and inclusion is at the heart of our culture.We will consider and make reasonable adjustments, where appropriate, within our application process to ensure you have equal access to opportunities. We understand that there’s not a “one size fits all” approach to adjustments and it can be difficult to share your lived experience – whether that's around a visible or non-visible disability, neurodiversity, a long-term health condition or injury.

However, it is helpful for you to share your lived experience so we can discuss reasonable adjustment needs. Any conversations we have will be treated confidentially.

Values of the firm
