Many of us, including working parents and working carers, have responsibilities that require flexibility in our working patterns at different stages of our lives. We support our people with flexible and agile working to enable them to balance all of their commitments.
We recognise that becoming a parent is a pivotal moment in someone’s personal and professional life. To support this transition and reintegration back into work, the firm offers parental leave coaching programmes to partners and employees. The coaching programmes are also open to those who become parents through surrogacy and adoption.
