At Roberts Jackson we promote a culture that is inclusive of all, where everyone has the opportunity to grow their career and where pathways to career progression are transparent. We believe that fostering equality, diversity and inclusion allows us to acquire the best talent, build the most effective teams for our clients and deliver the highest level of service. It is part of how we live our values and we work collaboratively to integrate these goals and concepts into every aspect of our business.
The principles of equal opportunity and diversity are fundamental to our continuing success. They are part of our philosophy and an essential feature of our practice. We endeavour to treat everyone ‐ both inside and outside Roberts Jackson ‐ with attention, courtesy, respect and consideration. We also aim to ensure that our employment opportunities are open and accessible to all based on individual qualities and personal merit. We aim to reflect the communities in which we work and encourage applications from people of every background. We believe in fairness and that we should treat each other with respect, including respect for our differences.
At Roberts Jackson you will find people from many different religious, racial and social backgrounds. It is our unequivocal policy not to discriminate against anyone ‐ directly or indirectly ‐ on grounds of race, colour, ethnic or national origin, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, pregnancy, disability, religion or belief, age, part-time or fixed‐term status.
We are signatories of the Law Society Diversity and Inclusion Charter.
As a result of the Legal Services Board's initiative to promote social mobility and diversity in the legal sector, all firms regulated by The Solicitors Regulation Authority (SRA) are required to collect, report and publish data about the diversity make‐up of their workforce annually. Firms are obliged to give all members of their workforce ‐ not just those who are legally qualified ‐ the opportunity to complete a questionnaire. However, there is no legal or regulatory obligation for the individual to complete the questionnaire.
