Career opportunities

You may join us as an analyst, bringing your experience and enthusiasm for using technology to securely and sensitively manage large volumes of client data under the guidance of more experienced team members.

Your skills will grow, and as they do you’ll take on wider responsibility for more complex matters. In time, you’ll have the opportunity to share your skills with less experienced team members, and begin to take responsibility for the end-to-end management of work, guided by the instructing teams from our internal clients.

Senior roles exist to lead the team and these will be filled by a blend of home grown talent and externally developed experience.

Depending on our needs at the time, it is possible to join our eDiscovery team at any level.
