Our people are at the heart of everything we do

We’re driven by the same things you are: progress, innovation and finding ‘a better way’. Our ethos is centred on delivering great client service which is only possible in partnership with each and every one of our colleagues!

Being the best firm that we can be is only achievable when everyone in every role feels valued, integrated and motivated to perform at their highest possible level. For HLK, this is a business imperative!

We recruit talented, committed people who care about service quality and help us build great client relationships. In return, we provide an inclusive and collaborative environment in which your opinions matter and your ideas count. Our dynamic and dedicated teams in Bristol, Glasgow, Leeds, London and Munich enjoy our innovative culture and receive excellent financial benefits, clear career prospects and development opportunities.

Diversity

HLK has an unwavering commitment to diversity and maintaining an inclusive working environment in which everyone can fulfil their potential and maximise their contribution. Our colleague led working groups on D&I and Mental Health were established not only to ensure that every person within HLK enjoys a sense of belonging, but is also treated fairly and respectfully. According to 2019 colleague satisfaction survey, 81.25% of colleagues said they thought HLK was a good place to work.

As one of the earliest Charter signatories of ‘IP Inclusive’, an industry-wide group aiming to raise awareness and improve equality, diversity and inclusivity in the IP community, we take this commitment seriously. Our leadership team actively participate in IP Inclusive’s senior leaders’ diversity think tank and are proud to make the following pledges. To this end we run bi-annual Progress And Contribution Talks (PACTs) for all colleagues, that not only identify and prioritise training and development opportunities, but actively seek insights from colleagues about how we can remain their employer of choice.
