Careers at Hopkin Murray Beskine
Hopkin Murray Beskine, recognised by the Legal 500 and Chambers UK Guide, has recently moved to new refurbished premises in Islington, North London offering good transport links (Angel/Highbury & Islington/Essex Road). We are a medium-sized firm with a very strong reputation nationally and locally amongst professionals, colleagues and clients. All our solicitors have a strong commitment to their work and clients.
Our solicitors have the opportunity to develop their own practices, supported by senior colleagues and committed juniors.
We have a collaborative, friendly workplace. We hold regular departmental team meetings offering professional development and support, plus the opportunity to help develop firm-wide practices and contribute to practice management and strategic ideas. Solicitors joining our teams quickly establish themselves in Hopkin Murray Beskine and find an environment where they can develop their skills. We have programmes of regular in-house training for care and family, and housing and public law. Colleagues readily communicate with other teams, so that our care and matrimonial lawyers consult each other (e.g. regarding domestic violence issues or care matters emerging in a private CAO case) and also their human rights and housing colleagues and vice versa.
We have excellent resources including a modern practice management system. Our Fees Manager assists with private billing and we have streamlined billing procedures. Our case management system enables easy remote working.
Colleagues have a combination of in-office and at home working arrangements, supported by a dedicated enthusiastic team of paralegals, trainees and our office practice manager. We offer flexible working arrangements including consideration of part-time or condensed hours to fit around family and other responsibilities.
The office work environment is pleasant and comfortable, including all the usual refreshments and regular fruit deliveries. Colleagues here benefit from free optician check-ups, locally arranged flu vaccinations if requested, additional holiday on birthdays, full office closure between Christmas and New Year, and we have a friendly social environment.
Hopkin Murray Beskine is Lexcel accredited and we have a Cyber Essential Plus certificate.
We are committed to equal opportunities and seek to recruit a diverse workforce.
We are interested in receiving applications from quality candidates even if your application does not immediately fit our specified criteria. Let us know if you would like to join our team, telling us what you can offer and why you would like to join us.
