We recruit enterprising, talented and ambitious team players who share our commitment to providing the highest possible level of service and added value to our clients. We require integrity and a high level of responsibility from our people. We value enthusiasm and a proactive approach, the ability to innovate and be a team player, and an aptitude for analytical and creative thinking. Our business services professionals have outstanding academic and professional qualifications, and we expect each of them to contribute to the collegial and supportive atmosphere.
At White & Case, we strive to achieve excellence in everything we do. Our London office provides an extensive range of services, and plays an integral role in maintaining our reputation as a respected and ambitious global law firm.
We are proud of our achievements—revenue of more than US$1.5 billion, three practices rated Band 1 in Chambers Global, top ranked for diversity and pro bono programmes—but we will not rest on our laurels. Last year, we launched an ambitious five-year growth strategy that will strengthen our position as a top-of-mind firm for global clients—and an employer of choice for top talent. The London office is a key pillar in that strategy contributing more than £290 million in revenue.
As a high-stretch, high-reward organisation, leadership and performance support are important to us. Our naturally diverse teams of talented professionals are given the opportunity to work on a wide variety of exciting international projects. The work is challenging but rewarding, with a focus on ongoing professional development, an engaging work environment and the chance to really make a difference.
The Firm recognises that our employees spend a significant part of their everyday lives at the workplace. That’s why we provide excellent benefits and maintain a positive and friendly work environment, support ongoing personal and professional development and reward outstanding achievements.
We have a diverse, enriching and enjoyable work culture. Our employees represent 97 nationalities and speak 89 languages, which is vital to our ability to effectively represent our diverse clients throughout the world. We offer an open-door, collaborative culture that fosters strong internal working relationships across our offices worldwide.
We go a long way to attract talent and to make sure that our people have a fulfilling personal and professional experience at the Firm. Our affinity groups and women’s networks offer their members the opportunity to support and mentor each other and also focus on talent management. We benefit from a number of global and local diversity programmes that help the Firm consistently achieve top international rankings on diversity.
Our employees are active in a number of Firm-led and collaborative initiatives aimed at making a significant impact on diversity.
Through our Global Citizenship Initiative, you can feel proud of being part of a Firm that takes its responsibilities as a global citizen seriously and, by leveraging our unique global footprint and ability to collaborate across borders, does work that makes a tangible difference on a wide range of social and environmental issues.
Many of our team building activities have a charitable or volunteer focus. In London, we support our Charity Partner KIDS, which is a leading children’s disability charity, through focused fundraising, volunteering and pro bono assistance.
