Remote working

Remote working is on the rise and that includes within law firms.  We are part of this movement: Instead of managing our time, we try to manage our work to fit our energy and focus levels. Although we continue to work in a modern office environment, we make no secret of the fact that we’re fans of remote working. We see it as fundamental to the future of work, alongside more traditional offices and collaboration spaces. Why? Because remote working offers unique benefits.

It provides competitive advantage through reducing overheads, accessing talent that office-only approaches can’t reach, increasing agility and providing a humane way to deliver services ’24/7′. It diminishes reliance on offices and commutes, lowering energy consumption and carbon emissions. It democratises access to quality work and energizes rural, remote and suburban regions. It provides individuals with greater control over their day, supporting communities and family life as well as increasing personal wellbeing.

Our focused, remote working selection process ensures that our lawyers not only have excellent legal skills but possess the motivation and characteristics needed to work on a remote, freelance basis.

Online Application: The lawyer applies to us by sending a completed application form and CV.

Assessment

Assessment: One of our lawyers completes an online assessment to determine the applicant’s written and verbal competency and another to identify an alignment between working freelance, remotely and their work motives and preferences.

Video Interview: We interview the applicant via video-conference. This explores the applicant’s skills, motivations and talents for working in remote and the assessment results.

Referencing: If, after the interview, we both decide we would like to work together, we take two telephone references.

Onboarding: If references are successful, the lawyer joins our remote working team. We have some onboarding paperwork to do at this stage.

Pooling: Once this is done, the lawyer is now a member of our remote working team and is ready to be considered for assignments.
