That’s why we’re nurturing the leaders of tomorrow; all bringing international insights and diverse perspectives to unlock possibilities and make impact. It’s how we can achieve our ambitions together. Meet some of our people who leading our firm into the future.
Flexible working that works
We were among the first major law firms to introduce agile working through our hybrid working policy, which is now a core part of our culture. You’ll be asked to spend an average of 60% of your time at the office, with the option to work elsewhere for the other time. We believe this combination of valuable face-to-face time and flexibility for remote work benefits everyone: you, your team, and above all, our clients.

What's on offer

We want you to have a long and rewarding career at Herbert Smith Freehills, which means supporting you to do your best work. Alongside our agile-working policy – which allows you to spend an average of 40% of your working time away from the office – the benefits below are here to help you find space to recharge and room to grow.
Compensation Our compensation and salaries are competitive across legal and business services roles.
Development Structured learning, skills-training and one-to-one coaching to help you thrive.
Learning and development
There’s no match for the insight and skills you’ll pick up through experience. After spending time working on high profile cases and deals with brilliant, driven colleagues, you’ll soon notice the difference in yourself. But that’s not all we do to support your growth. Your development is a top priority for us: as global leaders, we need to be on the cutting edge. You’ll have access to a range of live and online learning programmes, along with regular mentorship and performance reviews.
