We are committed to attracting, developing and retaining the best talents across our practice and business services groups. Our continued success relies on our ability to provide a supportive, inclusive and motivating environment where everyone has a role to play in supporting the delivery of outstanding service to our clients.
We offer exceptional career opportunities to our lawyers, aspiring graduates and business support professionals, in an environment that is challenging, rewarding and, we believe, truly different from our competitors.
We are looking for highly talented people who can demonstrate an affinity with our values to help us achieve our vision of becoming the leading global business law firm. In return, we offer a dynamic and diverse environment in which people can build a long and fruitful career and have their success rewarded.
Building your career
Our people are at the very heart of our business; that's why we are committed to ensuring everyone has access to the learning, development and experiences they need to progress their careers with us.
Our approach is based on a mutual commitment between our people and the firm. We encourage our people to take responsibility for their career development needs, whilst providing them with the support they need to do this.
This extends to developing skills in areas beyond conventional business activities. We believe in living our core values and investing in our communities – by giving something back we are helping to shape a better future for them. Our people tell us that investing in the community has helped them develop professional skills and engage more fully with the wider environment.
Diversity and inclusion
We promote a culture that is inclusive of all; where everyone has the opportunity to grow their career, and where pathways to success are transparent.
Fostering diversity, inclusion and equality allows us to hire the best talent, build the most effective teams, deliver the highest level of client service and be effective contributors to our local communities.
Learning and development
Investment in the careers and reputations of our people is one of the core values behind everything we do. Our development programs demonstrate the real commitment we make to all our people.
Our award-winning International Learning and Development Curriculum has been developed to support the increasing needs of our people as they look to further their careers, whilst supporting our clients; wherever they operate around the world. This includes a range of activities internationally, regionally and locally.
All employees have access to formal training courses – ranging from technical courses, business, systems and skills training, to continuing legal education. Our award-winning International Career Academies provide our lawyers and business support professionals with an opportunity to learn and enhance professional skills at key stages of their careers, whilst meeting colleagues from across the firm and growing their personal networks.
Coaching and mentoring are well-established forms of personal and professional development here at DLA Piper and we have a number of programs to support the many varied requirements of our lawyers.
