Careers at Eversheds Sutherand UK

Why join Eversheds Sutherland?

RIDI Award Winner 2014Eversheds Sutherland is big - we're one of the largest full service international law firms and work for some of the world's most prestigious organisations in both the public and private sectors.

We employ over 4,500 people in more than over 60 offices across Europe, the Middle East, North America and Asia. This means we're based in the places where our clients do business and need people on the ground looking after their interests. Eversheds International is a network of owned and non-owned offices across the world that has grown as a result of listening to what our clients need. All of our offices share the same philosophy and project management approach, ensuring clients receive service that is consistent and distinctly Eversheds Sutherland.

Eversheds Sutherland delivers local expertise and personal attention alongside the variety of work and resources that international firms offer.

This is a powerful combination and one that offers huge advantages; advantages that we're building on by reinforcing networked law as a part of our culture. This means we pass on work to other practice groups and regions. Centres of excellence ensure our one firm philosophy is a reality, and our expertise in each area ensures we meet clients' needs when putting teams together. There are opportunities everywhere you look within Eversheds.

Everyone at Eversheds Sutherland tends to talk about our culture. It really is as friendly as you might have heard. We take our work seriously but we enjoy ourselves.

There's a great social life here for those who want it. Hard work, intense deadlines and exacting clients are part and parcel of life at any serious law firm. Eversheds Sutherland is no exception. Where we do differ is in our insistence that the wellbeing and personalities of our people should be protected and celebrated. You'll find that we support one another, appreciate a sense of humour and encourage individual styles to emerge in the way we practise the law.

We have a robust people strategy in place and we will look continuously improve it;

  • Client relationship management
    We will provide greater support to those managing client relationships in terms of marketing, training and mentoring. An international approach to client management and relationship development will mean relationships are driven for the benefit of all. 
  • International integration and mobility
    Every part of our business must think of itself as being part of an international law firm. 
  • Active talent management
    We will ensure that all employees are committed to developing themselves as well as others. 
  • Flexibility
    We will further promote a flexible approach to working and proactively seek assurances from our people, that reasonable demands are met.

We have always had an attitude that difference is a good thing when everyone is pulling in the same direction.

People are rightly asking nowadays about what our policy is on diversity. We couldn't be as innovative as we are if we were all the same, that's why we welcome diversity in all aspects of our business. Read more in our diversity pages.
