OUR VALUES

At Ellisons, our values are embedded in everything we do. We call it the Ellisons Way. They form a basis for how we work, they help us set our goals for the year ahead, and help us drive our actions; so we stay focused on what’s important to us.

We place our clients and colleagues at the centre of everything we do.

Our colleagues are at the heart of our business. We do all we can to support and develop them in their careers and on a personal level; ensuring that we do all we can to focus on health and wellbeing.

We pride ourselves on our customer service and offer all our colleagues support and training in every aspect of client care. We will always provide the best service possible, which means we focus on the relationship with our clients and act as their Trusted Advisor in all aspects of their life.

We work together as one team and we have fun.

We pride ourselves on the closeness and integration between all our departments and offices, despite the fact we are a growing firm. Whilst having a very clear management structure, Ellisons is not hierarchical; we are very relaxed and we believe that everyone within the firm contributes to making the firm a success. By bringing experts together from across the firm, we work collaboratively on matters that span across different specialisms, making the clients’ experience seamlessly joined-up.

We employ very talented people who love what they do, but we don’t take ourselves too seriously! We celebrate our colleagues’ hard work, and we support each other. We enjoy life – inside and outside of work. We also work with complete flexibility. Colleagues work from home and in the office in a way that suits them, their team, and their families.

We recruit, develop, and support talented individuals.

We are committed to our colleagues, nurturing our talented people and invest in them and their future with us, believing everyone should have a personalised development plan. We run an annual learning and development programme that is open to everyone and offers a wide range of opportunities to colleagues. The ‘Ellisons Academy’ is designed specifically to support colleagues in their chosen career path, helping people prepare for promotion when the time is right for them. We offer professional development qualifications alongside offering solicitor apprenticeships, CILex qualifications and Trainee Solicitor programmes.

We engage with our community, we care about its future and help it prosper.

We are committed to supporting the local community through the work that we do, our chosen providers and other engagements. Our colleagues pride themselves in their involvement in the community. So many of our clients run local, family-based businesses, and providing them with the support and advice that they need is very important to us.
