All recruitment of staff is carried out in full compliance with the terms of our Equality & Diversity Policy. We have a diverse membership of barristers and we aim to reflect that also in a diverse composition of our staffing.

We maintain recruitment records to enable us to monitor our performance against our Equality & Diversity Policy.

However, candidates with a background in a legal environment would be desirable. Specific duties would include, but are not limited to: Diary and case management using LEX (training will be given), dealing with direct public access enquiries and assisting with fee billing.
An attractive remuneration package is available for the right candidate. The salary will be dependent on experience and strength of application. In addition to salary, the package will include a performance-linked bonus.
To apply or if you would like a confidential chat about the role please contact David Bingham, Senior Clerk email@example.com
Work Experience & Part-time Work
We do not offer work experience positions for schoolchildren since we do not consider the work environment in a Chambers and the types of role available conducive for this purpose. We sometimes get approached by University students for work experience roles and, if we can identify a useful role (eg to assist with a particularly heavy workload or to carry out a particular project), we may offer a short stay for this purpose. Any application for this type of role should be addressed to the Chambers Director. Any student seeking experience in Chambers primarily with a view to becoming a barrister is advised to apply for a mini-pupillage where the experience would be more relevant.
