Why work for Atkins Dellow?
We have a reputation for doing a great job while being friendly and personable, not stuffy or pompous, but absolutely focussed on looking after our clients’ best interests.
If you like the sound of this, come and have a chat in complete confidence. If there’s a good fit, you like us and we like you, we’ll support you in taking your career to the height of your aspirations.
Each person is equally important here and every role is essential to the services we provide. It’s crucial to us that we run a happy ship. We’ve no time for office politics, unkindness or lone rangers. Many of us spend more time working than relaxing, so we want to enjoy it.
Most of our clients are recommended or referred to us by existing clients or other professionals and our aim is to exceed their expectations. Anything less than that simply isn’t good enough.
We’re a dynamic, expanding firm with a great reputation. We pay competitive salaries and reward great performance with a generous package.
Most of us mix working from home and in one or more of our offices. This is usually arranged within the respective teams and can be very flexible within the demands of the workload and clients’ needs.
We’re not looking for anodyne personalities or specific backgrounds. We’re an eclectic mix and we enjoy adding to that – we think it enriches us and enhances the services we offer. You just need to be clever, ambitious, great with people, love what you do, and want to be part of a great team.
Our Head Office and Administration Centre is based in Bury St Edmunds. All physical post, our accounts team and paper administration are run from this location. We also have offices and meeting centres in other locations in Suffolk and London, with plans to open more.
All lawyers and support staff work variously from home and offices, typically spending approximately half of the week working from home and half from a mix of offices. If the circumstances demand it, everyone can work from home.
We’re always keen to hear from high-flyers who think they’d like to develop their career with us, and we very much encourage direct applications. We’d rather meet great people and create a role that maximises their talents and aspirations than require feats of contortion to fit into an advertised criteria.
