Working With Us 

As a firm, we look to employ people based on their personality and attitude as much as their experience. We've built a thriving team by recruiting individuals who work well together, who share a commitment to customer service and a passion for helping people. 
We have seen that by offering our employees a balance between their careers and their life outside of work, we attract and retain some of the best talent in the sector. 80% of our team currently make use of our flexible working, whether that be in their hours, their location or both. 
We understand that it is important you find a workplace that is the right fit for you too. Our video should provide an insight into how we work. You can also meet our team on the About Us page and visit our News page for updates about Spencer Shaw. 

What do we look for? 

We want to work with people who understand why excellent service is so important to us, who take pride in providing the best representation to clients. We look for people who share our belief in: 
Guiding clients to make the best choices for their case, using our specialist knowledge and experience of employment law and procedures. 
Actively progressing every matter. We focus on quality of service, not quantity of cases, so every issue gets the attention it needs, when it needs it. 
Providing clear information on fees so that clients have control of their costs right from the start. 
Keeping clients up to date about their matter. Clients shouldn’t need to chase us to find out what is happening.
