Our business services teams have a vital role to play when it comes to our ability to deliver results. A law firm cannot operate without them.

A strong finance and accounts team to manage the mass of financial transactions taking place across the business. To ensure efficiency, and fairness. To guide the profitable performance of the firm.

A people team with a focus on finding, nurturing and retaining the best talent. On supporting the development of our people.

A marketing and business development team that can raise the profile of the organisation. That can articulate the complexities of what we do in an engaging way. That can represent the authentic face of the firm.

An IT team that can provide the tools to the firm to deliver an exceptional service. Efficiently. Seamlessly. Smartly.

A compliance team that can ensure we follow the right path, every time, all the time.

A knowledge team to keep the lawyers at the top of their game.

And a facilities team to improve, manage and maintain the places in which we work and support the operation of the firm.

Ward Hadaway has built teams in each of these areas that ensure the business runs smoothly, effectively, and efficiently. Working alongside the highest quality professionals, you will get to learn and develop by providing the highest level of support to those who deliver our legal service.

And we have recently had that exceptional talent recognised, with our IT team awarded the Technology Team of the Year at the nationally respected British Legal Technology Awards.

What we're looking for

We have a huge range of roles across the firm.

We embrace inclusivity and understand that people are different, in ways which are visible and ways in which aren’t. We believe diversity drives an innovative culture and enriches our working and client experience. What unites us is a sense of ambition and a drive for excellence in the work we do. We are also honest, fair and straight-talking. And above all else, friendly.

So if you are too, share our passion for exceptional service, and wish to work alongside us to build a profitable and responsible business, get in touch to start a conversation.

What you'll find

Learning and development

We know that keeping our people on top of their game is a fundamental and essential part of a successful professional services firm. We support the learning and development of our people by running training and developmental sessions firm-wide, departmentally, at unit or teams level, and individually. We also actively encourage you to identify and attend the conferences and training required for your particular skills.

We encourage a regular dialogue with your manager to help you with your ongoing development.

Package and benefits

In addition to offering a competitive salary, we reward our people with a whole range of benefits, some core and some flexible, designed to shape a reward package that’s right for you – now and in the future. Our core benefits include:

  • A pension scheme with employer matched contributions of up to 6%
  • 25 days holiday and once you’ve been with the firm for 4 years this increases to 26 days, with a further increase once you have 5 years’ service to 27 days and once you reach 10 years’ service holiday increases to 28 days. There is also the option to purchase up to 5 additional days. That’s on top of all the recognised public holidays in the UK.
  • Life assurance cover of 4 times salary, with the option to purchase additional cover of up to 10 times salary.
  • An Employee Assistance Programme

Everyone’s an individual at Ward Hadaway so as well as our core benefits, we’ve got benefits you can add or remove pretty much as flexibly as you wish:

  • Cycle to Work Scheme
  • Dental insurance
  • Travel insurance
  • Critical illness cover
  • Health cash plan insurance
  • Purchase of home technology in interest free instalments
  • Subsidised city centre parking / Annual travel tickets

Health and wellbeing

We are committed to the health and wellbeing of our people and that is why we offer a range of initiatives including annual flu vaccinations, Employee Assistance Programme, discounted gym memberships, health analysis, team building and social allowances, to name but a few. We are out our best when you are at your best so the wellbeing of our people is a fast evolving agenda for the firm. We are also part of the Mindful Business Charter and are developing principles to encourage positive working practices reducing unnecessary stress to create a healthy and agile business atmosphere for our people.
