We have been recognised as a Top 75 Employer in the Social Mobility Employer Index 2021.
Launched in 2017, the Index has grown to become the leading authority on employer-led social mobility. It assesses and ranks UK employers on the actions they take to ensure they are open to talent from all social backgrounds.
The Social Mobility Employer Index is comprised of two elements: questions directed at employers, and an employee survey. Employers are evaluated across seven areas: their work with young people, routes into the employer, the attraction of staff, recruitment and selection, data collection, progression of staff and experienced hires and advocacy. They are then benchmarked against one another and the data and insights from this process are published in an annual Key Findings Report featuring a ranking of the 75 top-performing employers on social mobility that year.
Partner Paul Leamy said: ''We are delighted to have been recognised as a Top 75 employer by the Social Mobility Foundation in its Social Mobility Employer Index 2021. This is an acknowledgment of our ongoing contribution to efforts to create a level playing field for all individuals, regardless of socio-economic background, to gain access to opportunities within the legal sector. Diversity of backgrounds and thinking within our teams is invaluable to our business, our culture and our client relationships.''Read the full Social Mobility Employer Index here
