Wragge Lawrence Graham & Co
Fancy starting a career in a successful law firm?
We were formed in Birmingham in 1834. It's safe to say we've come a long way since then. Today, we're a UK-headquartered international law firm providing a full service to clients worldwide. We have 116 partners and more than 1,000 people operating from offices in Birmingham, Guangzhou, London, Munich, Paris and Dubai.
Commerciality is at the heart of everything we do. We understand business. Lots of us have worked in business. This way, clients can be sure of staying ahead of the game, confident that every imaginable commercial angle has been covered by people who really know them.
Increasingly, our clients face the pressures of global competition, more regulation, rising prices and environmental challenges. They want ideas and solutions from lawyers who aren't afraid of a blank sheet of paper. Lawyers who make things happen. Lawyers who challenge the status quo. That's us. Actually, that's you too.
What's important to you in your career? Job satisfaction? Training and development? Opportunities for progression? A competitive benefits and reward system?
Wragge & Co provides its trainees with all of these and more.
When you join the firm, you'll be valued and supported as a member of Wragge & Co's Single Team.
We pride ourselves on the technical and service excellence which attracts our high-profile clients. And the foundation for this success? Our people.
Wragge Lawrence Graham & Co recruits and retains the best. You'll need to be talented, hard-working, enthusiastic and up for a challenge. In return, you'll enjoy working for a law firm where your professional development and wellbeing will always be a priority; we've been ranked in the Top 50 UK workplaces for 13 consecutive years.
There's more to WrWragge Lawrence Graham & Co than just work though; people here describe the environment as inclusive, open and fun. The firm's social committee and charity champions take care of that.
We also have a leading corporate responsibility programme. At Wragge Lawrence Graham & Co we actively support our community, environment and charity of the year.
What makes you, you, makes us, us. That's probably the best way to sum up our approach to diversity. We celebrate the individual. We're proud of the diversity of our people - different backgrounds, different cultures, different experiences, different interests, different ages, different needs.
We've worked hard - and we'll continue to work hard - to create an environment where you can be yourself. We're committed to attracting and retaining talented people from a diverse range of backgrounds. Again, easy to say, much better to do. So we do. Quentin Poole, our senior partner, leads our diversity forum, which includes fee earners and support staff from across the firm.
We've implemented initiatives to reach out to black, Asian and minority ethnic communities, and we've created a workplace that recognises cultural difference. We take the time to celebrate dates that are important to you, like the Chinese New Year, Rosh Hashanah, Ramadan, Yom Kippur, Diwali, Black History Month, Christmas and Easter. We also have contemplation rooms at our Birmingham and London offices.
We're proud to be recognised as a Stonewall Diversity Champion but we're not resting on our laurels. Our LGBT network meets every six to eight weeks, with the aim of continuing to raise awareness of the issues faced by LGBT employees in the workplace. They also organise regular social events and guest speaker sessions.
