Careers Business Support
Part of our approach involves finding new ways to deliver value through our services. Our business support teams are behind many of these initiatives.

Local knowledge with global experience
Whatever success looks like for you, we have the capabilities to meet any legal challenges that come along the way. Our international network of offices with a combination of local expertise and global experience helps us provide innovative and informed solutions.
What do we look for?
We’re after creative individuals who are passionate about high performance: it’s this collective drive and ambition that makes our culture worth being part of. You don’t need extensive experience in professional services – we value experience gained in other sectors too. You’ll be someone who can work with others towards a common goal, and support your colleagues with openness and respect. You’ll bring an instinct for problem solving and be able to anticipate our clients’ needs. What’s more, you’ll share our approach to innovation, whatever your background.
What can we offer you?
We’ve witnessed a period of unprecedented change and development over the last five years. Our growth as a firm has created a wealth of opportunities for both our clients and our staff. A career here will give you a chance to engage in challenging, cutting-edge projects and develop significant knowledge and experience within the industry. You’ll also work globally – whether that’s through a secondment, or a transfer to another office overseas or simply through your day-to-day work. Wherever you are in our firm, you’ll receive the support of your line manager who will understand your potential and be supportive of your development.

Online application form
You’ll need to complete your application and upload your CV on to our recruitment portal. We will contact you to update the status of your application – or you can check it yourself by logging into your account.
The selection process
Our selection process may vary according to the level and role, but we will always advise you at the outset if you’ve been shortlisted for a role. Remember, the process is as much for us to find the perfect candidate as it is for you to determine whether Ashurst is right for you – so come armed with questions when you meet us.
If we make you an offer, you do not need to accept straightaway. We want you to be sure that Ashurst is the right choice for you. Come in for another visit and meet our people. During our discussions, we’ll inform you of our comprehensive benefits package and talk you through the various elements of it. If the role appeals to you, we’ll be happy to welcome you to our team.
After you have accepted
Once you’ve accepted our offer, we’ll liaise with you to agree a start date on one of our induction days. After we complete all the necessary pre-joining checks, you’ll receive a link to an interactive joiner portal, which will allow you to find out more about our firm and what to expect when you start your role.
