Why work for us

The Bar Council is committed to recruiting, developing and retaining the most talented staff.  A role with us will offer you personal and professional development that will enhance your skills and provide an excellent footing for furthering your career; not to mention the opportunity to work with one of the most widely respected professions in world.

To demonstrate this commitment, in addition to our pay and benefits we provide a broad range of opportunities for staff training and development, which may include support for the attainment of professional qualifications. This can be in the form of a financial contribution or study support.

In addition, staff remuneration is reviewed annually to ensure that staff are rewarded fairly and equitably for the work that they do. 

We value the contribution of staff to the continuous improvement of HR policy and practice. The Bar Council has an active staff committee which acts as the formal voice of our staff, providing comment on issues which directly or indirectly impact upon their working lives. 

As well as utilising the skills I gained in previous employment, I have built upon them by undertaking new tasks. No two days are ever the same in my role.  

When considering applying for a job with a new employer, we understand that there is some information that you may want to know, such as what kind of pay and benefits to expect or our commitment to equality and diversity. Other queries may be addressed by our Frequently Asked Questions section.
