Working for us

Our people are important to us – they are the Board. Should you come to work with us, you'll discover that no matter what your job or level of responsibilities, you are treated as an individual, with fairness, dignity and respect.

Legal aid is changing and developing, therefore our work environment is a dynamic one. It’s challenging because we play a key role in the justice system, supporting the courts and access to justice. We’re always striving to improve the service we offer. As a result, we have high expectations of our staff. We seek high calibre people and in return we set out to provide good training and development, working conditions and rewards. We aim to be an 'employer of choice'. Our reward package offers competitive starting salaries and pay progression, providing your performance is good. In addition there is recognition for higher performance achievers.

We recognise that there needs to be a balance between work and life and we have award-winning practices in place to ensure that balance is met wherever possible. Our innovative flexible working arrangements allow individual teams to agree their flexible working patterns within extended office opening hours, providing business needs are met.
