Working here

Why join

We expect a lot from our people. Real commitment and excellent performance. So it’s only fair that we offer a benefits package that reflects your dedication, provides support and allows for development inside and outside the firm.Our rewards and benefits package is paired with a supportive and inclusive culture to ensure that you have every opportunity to succeed.


Why you

We’re proud that there isn't an 'Allens' type'. We know that diverse perspectives help solve complex problems, strengthen teams and enrich client relationships. The more you enjoy working with a diverse range of people, the greater your success will be.

While we celebrate our differences, it’s important to understand what unites us. Initiative, excellence, commerciality, flexibility and commitment are all attributes that our people have in common. These help us to succeed as a team and individually.

Building a culture of inclusion ensures our people can reach their full potential. For us, this starts with strong leadership. Our inclusion and diversity strategy is supported by an Inclusion and Diversity Council, chaired by our Managing Partner. This council provides sponsorship, role-modelling and drives initiatives across our firm.
