Are you interested in joining the team?

What is it like to work at Oliver & Co? Well, we like to think we have created somewhere that people are happy to come and work everyday, where the offices are somewhat colourful (who doesn’t like a bright pink wall, eh?), and where talented, successful people ‘get on’ in their careers.

We’re always keeping an eye out for Oliver & Co people to join us. Below are a few of the things that we look out for in a potential new member of the team:

  • A bright and enthusiastic personality
  • A great track record in whatever it is that you do
  • The ability to think and act commercially
  • A permanent smile
  • No fear of answering the phone
  • And a love of all things cake (**optional)

Great people really go a long way to make our business. People that don’t care can really make it rubbish for everyone else. Whilst we try to keep the office relaxed, we need highly talented, self motivated people who know when it is time to graft, and when it is time to get involved with a bake off or charity bike ride.

If you want to let us know how great you are, email a covering letter together with an up-to-date CV to law@oliverandco.co.uk. We may not have any job positions suitable for you – but if you’re an Oliver & Co person, you never know.
