Our colleagues are our greatest asset and we invest in them through learning and development, the promotion of a work life balance and a culture supported by our values of respect, openness, progress, integrity and inclusion. We place great importance on our values; these were devised by our colleagues in 2012 and underpin how we conduct our business with our members, the public, each other and wider stakeholder groups.
"I joined the Society in 2016 from a very commercial background - I was looking for a change in career direction and the Law Society has enabled me to apply my transferrable skills from the financial sector into the not-for-profit sector. One of the main things for me was working for an organisation that has its members at its heart and its core, alongside a strong interest in serving the public good. The Society is a small, professional, friendly organisation with a dynamic, “we’re all in it together” culture."
"At the time of joining the Society I was a single parent and the flexi time system which the organisation operated appealed to me so I could work around my kids’ timetable, at the Society family friendly, means family friendly. The benefits and career opportunities at the Society are also great and has enabled me to progress from a temporary to permanent contract and gain experience in a variety of teams within the Society. This is the longest I have been in any job – which is testament to how much I enjoy it and the benefits which I get."
