Working at B P Collins LLP
B P Collins is a large, regional law firm providing a range of legal services for businesses and private individuals. We are proud of our progressive and supportive culture that welcomes diversity, encourages personal development and rewards performance.
Our commercial and private client teams are cohesive, collegiate, continually expanding and regarded as some of the best in their field.
Each year we recruit a number of qualified solicitors and trainees to strengthen our position and ensure we are always best placed to meet the legal needs of our clients. Of equal importance are our support teams of secretaries, paralegals and business support professionals who all work together to deliver the highest standards of client service.
We offer varied career opportunities for both legal and support roles and encourage individuals to maximise both their own potential and their contribution to the firm. We aim to provide competitive terms and conditions and ensure everyone receives the required training and personal development opportunities regardless of their role.
All this adds up to a healthy work life balance within a hardworking but friendly environment.
We also enjoy socials together. Here is an example of one of our more daring adventures with some of the team in Norway on the edge of Trolltunga (Troll's Tongue).
The Firm offers a comprehensive benefits package which includes:
- Competitive salary
- Generous annual holiday entitlement with additional service accrued days
- Discretionary bonus scheme
- Voluntary pension and life assurance scheme membership

We value diversity and actively promote these principles by seeking to ensure that all individuals are treated fairly with dignity and respect, recognising and encouraging individual contribution within the organisation and aiming to ensure that our staff achieve their full potential.
All employment decisions are taken without reference to irrelevant or discriminatory criteria and we endeavour not to discriminate in the areas of recruitment, selection, promotion, transfer, training, access to benefits and services, discipline or dismissal.
