Career progression

General observations

There is an established network of individuals across the business that can support each other in their development and careers.

The firm refers to itself as a meritocracy, striving to create an environment which is inclusive and in which people can give their best. Despite having more women at partnership level than their counterparts, there is recognition that more can be done to balance the ratio of men to women at senior levels. This is assisted by targeted career progression initiatives, such as:

  • The AWL consists of a two-day personal development programme, interaction with a personal sponsor Partner, development of a personal career plan, and alumni and networking opportunities.
