Manchester Hub careers
Explaining the culture of a firm is always difficult. But we think ours is special.
We are the world’s oldest global law firm, but we are constantly reinventing ourselves. Technological disruption, economic crises, political risk – the challenges facing the world’s biggest businesses have been the same throughout history. We know because we have been at their side for nearly three centuries, giving them the confidence to shape the future.
We have a ‘one-firm’ mindset. We don’t just say we are one firm; we act like one firm right across the world. We bring together the knowledge, experience and energy of the whole firm to help our clients. We encourage, support and share in the success of all our colleagues.
We are a people business.
Diversity is a strength and we value the fresh perspectives, creative ideas and connections that flow from bringing together people with different backgrounds. We seek to create a welcoming, supportive environment in which all can flourish.
At Freshfields we aim to make a positive contribution to the communities in which we work. The way we do business at Freshfields reflects who we are and what we stand for. We don’t just want to advise our clients well, we want to do so in a responsible and sustainable way.
Innovating to serve our clients better.
Future-facing, proactive and flexible, connected innovation provides a host of benefits to our clients, from enhanced experiences and improved efficiencies, to closer collaboration and transformational thinking. Through constant innovation, relentless client focus, and cutting-edge technology, we enable our clients to navigate today’s most complex challenges with confidence, and connect with the opportunities that will shape their futures.
To us, innovation means collaborating with our clients to develop new models for delivering our services, using a combination of new technology, alternative resourcing, flexible pricing and process improvement. This is not purely about technology but connected innovation – the combined power of people, processes and tech. These principles come together in our Freshfields Hub sites, which offer alternative legal careers.
