Wellbeing
Wellbeing

Simpson Millar LLP Solicitors provide staff with subsidised gym membership should they wish to join a gym. They operate an open and relaxted culture. Whilst staff are given realistic work related targets, this is not at the expense of a home life. Wherever possible, they allow staff a great deal of flexibility in order that they may acheive a greater work/life balance. Where the nature of their work allows, staff are able to take work from home days, reduce their hours, etc.

My Team
My Team

Simpson Millar LLP Solicitors have a budget specifically for fun and social events. Examples of these events are: Christmas Party's, pre-wedding celebrations, regular Friday evening social events for staff providing nibbles and drinks, Corporate Race day. Each department holds celebrations at year end together with other milestones. In particular, one of their most recently added teams celebrated the end of their first 6 months with Simpson Millar by way of a celebratory meal. Certain departments with Simpson Millar operate on a team target rather than an individual target and are therefore rewarded by way of a bonus upon reaching target. A Training Weekend is held annually in Birmingham where all Partners & Fee Earners attend Austin Court for training, seminars and presentations as well as an evening social function.
