Careers at Slater Heelis LLP

Working with us, you’ll get opportunities to develop your skills, knowledge and technical expertise, progress your career and have fun, too. We place an emphasis on training and developing our people because employing skilled staff is critical to the way we work – with each other and with clients. Many of our current team have developed from junior roles to positions of responsibility and authority. Others have changed career paths and developed new skills and achieved greater career satisfaction

We encourage team-working and we like people who aren’t afraid to ask questions, offer suggestions to improve how we work and are genuinely committed to making a difference for our clients. And as we work with many different types of clients, we can guarantee that your work will be varied and stimulating.

We conduct regular performance reviews as part of our structured appraisal process, so that staff and managers have an opportunity to discuss areas for attention, personal development and career aspirations.

Regular employee communications are important to us, too. We believe that keeping staff informed helps everyone to understand where we are heading and how we’re progressing towards our goals. Just as importantly, we encourage two-way communication so that ideas can be shared, questions raised and addressed and everyone feels that they have a “voice” that will be heard.

We are a firm that genuinely supports a healthy work/life balance and 42% of our workforce have part time or flexible working arrangements. (June 2017)
