Sidley has built an inclusive, collegiate culture firmwide. We strive to maintain an environment focused on teamwork and cooperation.
Given our relatively small size, the London office has a relaxed, down-to-earth friendliness that you may not find elsewhere in the City. Lawyers and support staff at all levels treat each other with a friendly and genuine respect and value the skills and knowledge that each team member brings to the table.
We are located at Woolgate Exchange in the heart of the City, with views of St. Paul’s Cathedral and close to Bank station and all that area has to offer—fantastic restaurants and bars, the Barbican arts complex, shopping and sporting facilities. You’ll find a great social scene within the office, with organised events including sailing and skiing weekends, pub quizzes, seasonal parties and charitable team activities like the City Road Race and the London to Brighton Bike Ride.
In addition to an excellent working environment, we offer a competitive salary along with a comprehensive benefits package.
Benefits for staff include:
- Generous time off policy
- Non-contributory pension scheme
- Private medical insurance
- Life assurance
- Income protection insurance
- Free membership to in-house gym
