Careers with Us

At Pearson Hards we offer staff a rewarding and professional working environment, and aim to get the most from our staff by creating a relaxed and enjoyable place to work.  Many of our staff have been with us for years which means that we are more like an extended family than a firm of legal professionals.  Indeed, some of our staff are actually related.   New staff are encouraged to get involved in the social, as well as professional side, of what we do here. 

We are always interested to hear from people that want to contribute to a firm which has a long standing reputation for high quality legal services, has a strong work ethic as well as commitment to offering the best service to our clients.  In return, we promise to offer a commitment to our staff’s professional development so that they can make the most out of their career. 

Details of specific vacancies will appear here whenever they are available. If you want to be considered for a specific position with us or for more general enquiries please contact Claire Darby on 0208 949 9500 or by email to
