Lucy: I’ve always really felt like I belonged at Francis Clark. I’ve actually found a lot of my really good friends here.
Ruth: I feel like I belong here because of the friendliness of everyone I meet, from the welcome you get from the receptionist when you walk into the office in the morning, like down to all the partners or directors, or the leaders of the firm as well.
Rob: I’ve been with the firm nearly 10 years now and I’d say it’s very much the relationships and friendships I’ve built up with colleagues over that time that really gives you that sense of belonging.
Mashud: Being such a large firm, we’ve got loads of people who are gurus at what they do. Everyone’s really accessible. Everyone’s easy to speak to. So if you ever have a question or ever want help with something, there will be somebody in the business who has done that before.
Rozy: I’m encouraged to be the best I can be with like doing a lot of team meetings. Even though my manager is in a different office, we still communicate a lot via Teams and there is a clear structure to my progression.
Rob: Throughout my training, I was also given the opportunity to go on secondments to different teams around the firm. This gave me the opportunity to broaden my knowledge and experience base, and also try to figure out which was the best path for me.
Lucy: I’m a VAT Assistant but if I want to I can go further. I can go on to become a Senior, I can go on to become a Manager or Partner. I’m also part of the staff forum, which is like the social committee and I’m a mental health first aider. I’m there to help anyone who’s struggling, to be a listening ear and point them in the right direction if they need any further help.
Rob: I work in a very big team. There’s always plenty of people around if you just have a chat or a laugh, or go and breakout for a game of table football. We regularly have department socials, we’ve just been drinks out, meals out. We have team building days.
Rozy: We go like axe throwing, quad biking, archery…
Lucy: We’ve done surfing, assault courses, they always make sure that we do something that’s really different and is going to bring out our fun side.
Rozy: The environment is very mixed. There’s lots of different people here from lots of different backgrounds.
Mashud: That’s been great, knowing that I can do what I want to do, and excel in the career which I’ve always wanted to excel in, without having to think that my skin colour or my background has affected me in any way.
Ruth: The introduction of hybrid working has been a bit of a game changer for me to be honest. As a mum, and as a working mum, the ability to actually be at home when my kids come home from school and just be there to be present for them, as well as being absolutely present in my working life. So I feel that the balance that I’ve got now means I can really be me.
Lucy: What I love is that the firm wants us to be ambitious for our clients but also for us, for us to be able to be the best that we can at work.
Ruth: You just feel like you’re part, almost part of the the family really.
Rob: I’m highly motivated by achievement. Whether that be through exam success, career progression, Francis Clark provides the challenges and the opportunities to tick that box for me.
Mashud: Motivation for me is leaving a mark, being able to do what I do best for the business to benefit not just myself but you know, the wider picture as well.
