You should be self-motivating, able to make the best use of technology, be receptive to change and ready to come up with new ideas. Above all we want people who want to work in a relaxed, open, flexible, diverse and friendly environment.

We invest heavily in targeted training and effective management support so that we – and our clients – get the best out of you. In turn, you’ll get the best out of us because above all we think that Bolt Burdon Kemp is a fun place to work. We have great parties, regular staff awards (recently trips to Paris) and invest in fitness schemes to benefit staff – such as regular yoga, boxercise, running, badminton, horse riding and singing classes. We also have field netball and football teams in local leagues. We have sent teams to bigger one-off projects such as the Florence and New York marathons and the Three Peaks challenge.

Our reputation attracts the best people and clients usually with novel or high value cases. The work is varied, demanding but never boring! For fee earning staff an attractive bonus scheme is an additional incentive.
