Creating the best place to work
A Career with Hudgell Solicitors
At Hudgells we expect our people to work tirelessly to help our clients; in return Hudgells invest in their people to ensure that they are provided with the support needed to be at their best, and to ensure they are rewarded for their achievements.
As a company that listens to our people, we regularly review our employees benefits to ensure these evolve in response to our people’s needs.
Supporting our people to be the best
We are committed to developing and retaining our talented people and we provide both internal and external training to everyone to enable them to reach their full potential.
We hold regular appraisals and talent mapping which addresses our people's technical and personal development needs. This enables us to build career pathways bespoke to them.
It's important to us to support individual memberships and accreditations to enable our people to attain their professional ambitions - these include The Law Society, APIL.
Ensuring our people are at their best
We understand the difficulties associated with balancing work and home life and as a commitment to our people we provide a flexible approach to working wherever possible.
We hold wellbeing days where you can get nutritional advice, have a head massage or try some relaxation techniques – just a few of the activities on offer. We also provide free fruit to promote healthy living.
Each Friday we dress down a little for a small contribution of £1 which goes towards raising funds for one of our charities of choice. There are lots more fund raising opportunities to get involved with too.
Rewarding our people for being the best
Pay reviews are conducted on an annual basis and follow a formal process of benchmarking salaries against the market to ensure we remain competitive.
We believe in recognising success and offer the potential for all staff to receive an annual bonus reflecting their personal contribution to the business.
We have a number of reward initiatives in place - our people receive vouchers for recommending new clients and new employees.
Flexible hours have been introduced to extend time lawyers are available to clients, with client service being core to our offering this decision was made to further support our values. Under the new permanent arrangement, lawyers will be able to spend more days each week working from home based on their proximity to their nearest office.
