Careers with Price Slater Gawne

A supportive culture for professional development, a real sense of contributing to a larger purpose

Life at Price Slater Gawne is a great one. We’re a firm that believes in delivering the best possible outcomes not only for our clients but also for our people: that’s why many of our colleagues have been with us since we started out in 2010.

Our values

We look after our people, guide their careers, nurture their progress within the firm, and regularly seek feedback on how they are progressing. All junior colleagues are mentored by senior staff with regular one-to-one meetings. We believe in a strong team ethic and everyone in the firm works together to ensure our continued growth and success. Everything we do is a group effort; lots of firm say it, we actually live it.

 

Our way of working

Our firm was founded on the basis of remote working so that our people could enjoy the significant benefit of a genuine work/life balance.

We work to very high standards and expect the best from our people, but we have neither the culture nor expectation of long hours and ensure workloads are always managed appropriately to deliver that: we put your wellbeing first. We maintain an HQ in central Altrincham and staff come into the offices as needed for team meetings and face-to-face client appointments.

We recruit entirely based on merit and operate a transparent career development programme, holding quarterly appraisals to ensure you, and we, are on track. We deliver a carefully thought-out programme of knowledge transfer across all our teams so that there are opportunities to move from one to the other if so desired – we don’t put our people in boxes. We actively encourage new ways of thinking, and every opinion is valued.

Jack Fitzsimons, Associate, Senior Accounts Assistant: “I have always been given the opportunity to progress within the firm, most recently with being promoted to associate and getting the go ahead to complete my AAT Level 4.”

Gail Galloway, Senior Associate, Wealth Protection: “For me, to have been recognised by way of promotion in my relatively short space of time at PSG speaks volumes as to the firm’s firm focus on employee appreciation and career development. This ethos encourages a mutual employer/employee respect which is integral to providing clients with the highest level of service.”

Jade Price, Solicitor, Court of Protection: “Price Slater Gawne is a great company to work for with a clear pathway for career progression. The firm has been a immensely supportive throughout my legal career and I have progressed from Paralegal to Solicitor whilst working here.”

The working environment promotes positive communication and a firm wide support network which motivates everyone to develop their role and create success.”

Sarah Ratcliffe, Associate, Clinical Negligence: “PSG has a detailed career path which sets out what the firm is looking for in employees who want to progress, which gives you something to aim for. Everyone’s really supportive of progression, aiming high and forward thinking.”
