Working for us
"The culture is not as one might expect from a solicitors practice. It is warm, friendly, nicely balanced between work and play, professional and an excellent example of an Investor in People" - Investors in People assessor feedback.
We chose to set the scene with that quote as it sums up our working environment wonderfully and because we actively seek to recruit individuals who will thrive in, and enhance, our unique culture. We are highly client centric and we work hard, but we work as a team, and keeping our Mission and Values firmly in mind we believe this provides an excellent environment in which committed and motivated people can excel.
Dedication and hard work are rewarded at Hunt & Coombs and we believe passionately in developing exceptional people. Our commitment to this goal was recognised externally in 1997 when we became the first law firm in Cambridgeshire to achieve the Investors in People award. We currently hold the Silver Accreditation.
Another proud law firm first, this time on a national scale, came for us in 2011 with our Silver Accreditation in the Investors in Environment (IIE) Awards. In 2012 we gained a further notch, achieving the Green IIE standard. And in 2014 we were delighted to be one of a handful of businesses awarded their top accreditation of being a Great Green Star! From our Missions and Values graphic you’ll already know that we like to take good care of the things that are important to us – like the environment, our clients and partners and of course our staff!
We are always seeking applications from lawyers, who have a real drive and determination to succeed in a firm that has a strong connection to local businesses and individuals. Whether you are experienced, a few years qualified, or starting out in your legal career, we would love to hear from you. We are looking for innovative individuals and we welcome your application.
We want to expand the Firm with professional and friendly candidates who can make a valuable contribution to all areas of law. As well as this, we want people that not only ensure excellent legal skills, but also exceptional service, to guarantee that all our clients have a positive experience. We are a firm who are passionate about what we do and are proud of our strong community and charity links. We have an excellent reputation in the market place and are confident that we can provide you with high quality work and a friendly supportive working environment where you can thrive. You will work with experienced teams and as such you will be provided with the support and training that you need to progress. This is an excellent opportunity to secure a role with a stable and established team.
On offer is a competitive salary and benefits package, along with a firm who has a progressive and proactive approach to training and career progression and a friendly yet professional working environment.
