Where possible, we want to offer all Bevan Brittan people flexibility
to work their week in a way that suits them - we operate a hybrid
working model based on the needs of our clients, teams and that of the
individual. Our core business hours are 9am - 5:15pm Monday to Friday,
however we are open to individuals working more flexibly around those
times and would welcome a conversation with you if you have any questions.
To us, being a responsible business is second nature; a core part of
Bevan Brittan's identity, running through our culture and embodied by
the clients we serve.
Bevan Brittan seeks to play an active role within its local office
communities. Through regular fundraising events, support for local
initiatives and annual charity donations at Christmas, we have
established a culture of giving within the firm. This has laid the
foundations for our Responsible Business strategy.
In December 2020 we donated a total of £40,000 to our four regional
office charities, with each charity receiving £10,000 towards the
causes colleagues support throughout the year. The donations went
towards providing vital services after a particularly challenging
year. Our current selected charity in Bristol is Great Western Air Ambulance
We want to demonstrate our commitment to these causes through action
rather than words; colleagues from across the firm are already heavily
involved, living and breathing the four pillars of our Responsible
Diversity & Inclusion
Collectively, these four pillars ensure we look after our colleagues'
wellbeing; offer an environment in which all can progress on merit,
regardless of personal circumstances or background; give something
back to the communities in which we work; and protect the environment.
Some recent initiatives include:
Strava running club: a virtual firm-wide running club on Strava,
with regular challenges to keep us all motivated to stay active.
Live Cook Along for Black History Month: We hosted a live virtual
'Cook Along' to share the connective power of food and community.
UK Disability History Month: We supported the event with
informative pieces and real life stories, reflecting our commitment
to supporting those of our colleagues who have a disability or who
care for someone with a disability.
Each lawyer has the opportunity to undertake pro bono legal work
for local charities and not-for-profit organisations. This has seen
colleagues support the Great Western Air Ambulance Charity
(Bristol), St Werburgh's City Farm (Bristol) and Moseley Road
Swimming Baths (Birmingham).
