The Olliers Career Path
We provide a transparent ‘career path’ for all lawyers. We clearly set out the areas we have identified as being crucial for the continuing success of our business. At Olliers any lawyer can move through the ranks of Associate, Senior Associate and then Partner.
Many of our lawyers are leaders in the field. They all share the same commitment to excellence to client service.
We all know that ‘culture eats strategy for breakfast’! At Olliers culture is at the heart of everything that we do. It permeates through our commitment to excellence, our Service Pledge to our clients and our career path as well as our working environment, and both our wellness and CSR strategies. We often refer to the ‘Olliers family’ and it is the culture within the firm that holds everything together.
We offer a supportive and collaborative environment for all our team. We offer flexible working conditions. Our lawyers combine a level of home and office working from our Deansgate base.
Corporate Social Responsibility
We regard ourselves as an integral part of the community in which we work and for many years we have taken our responsibility to our community very seriously. All members of the Olliers team participate in our CSR programme, supporting the numerous initiatives we are involved in every year.
The wellbeing of the Olliers team is at the heart of everything we do. We organise fortnightly wellbeing activities for small groups which allow for relaxation and ‘time out’ from the law. We provide a confidential Employee Assistance programme, which is open to all employees and family members.
David Abbott is our dedicated Head of CSR and Wellness.
