We want to recruit the best people, so we’re working to ensure talented students and graduates from every background can access opportunities with us.
Not every candidate’s achievements look the same on paper. That’s why we use Rare Recruitment's Contextual Recruitment System (CRS) to consider every student's achievements in context, helping to identify those with the greatest potential, from all backgrounds.
We have an open dialogue around disabilities from the start; whether it’s discussing concerns about the recruitment process or our working environment.
We partner with MyPlus consulting to make disability confidence part of our student recruitment strategy, beginning with attracting candidates, through to assessment and onboarding.
To provide opportunities for students from under-represented groups, we partner with Aspiring Solicitors (AS). As a result, we’re delighted that 50% of our training contract hires have made to AS members for the past two years.
Each year we host events in collaboration with Aspiring Solicitors, share our success stories with other firms and take part in the Professional Ambassadors programme which allows students to speak first-hand to our lawyers. Most recently, we have collaborated with Aspiring Solicitors on BASS, a Black Aspiring Solicitors Mentoring Scheme. We also have a series of professional ambassadors, all keen to support you.
We are also partner members of myGwork, a business community for LGBT+ professionals, graduates, inclusive employers and anyone who believes in workplace equality.

I'm immensely proud to be the partner champion for LGBT+ inclusion at Taylor Wessing. As well as co-founding Freehold, we have developed a great internal network of LGBT+ staff and allies who all work hard to support our people and clients across our UK offices.
