The principles of diversity play an integral part in our recruitment and retention of trainees, lawyers and support staff and in the promotion of talented individuals within our practice.

We are an equal opportunities employer and base the criteria for selection on an applicant’s ability to perform a role to the required standard, irrespective of gender, age, marital or civil partner status, sexual orientation, gender reassignment, race, ethnic origin, disability, pregnancy, maternity, religion or religious beliefs.

Birketts will avoid unlawful discrimination in all aspects of employment including recruitment, promotion, opportunities for training, pay and benefits, discipline and selection for redundancy. 

Person and job specifications will be limited to those requirements that are necessary for the effective performance of the job. Candidates for employment or promotion will be assessed objectively against the requirements for the job, taking account of any reasonable adjustments that may be required for candidates with a disability. Disability and personal or home commitments will not form the basis of employment decisions except where necessary.

Any information you provide will be kept strictly confidential, and only used by the Human Resources Department for monitoring purposes. 

Thank you for your co-operation.
