The way we work

At Dentons the way we work is built on trust, empowerment and all round flexibility. With diversity at our core, our approaches to work are as varied as we are. We support our staff to be their best selves, helping them make the right choices in where and how we work in order to deliver the very highest level of service to our clients, ensuring we are able to carry out our roles in their widest sense to support our teams, our personal development and our own preferences.

We have worked with, and listened to, all of our employees and now have three recognized ways of working. These categories are as follows;

Office based - Office based workers are those who need to be in the office every day as their physical presence is intrinsically linked to their specific role, this applies to a small proportion of our workforce/teams.

Virtual workers – Our virtual workers have no need to attend an office and as such, are fully remote. We have successfully implemented this model across both our Legal Delivery Centre and ARC real estate teams. Members of these teams are provided with all necessary equipment and an allowance to create a workspace in their own home and won't be expected to come to an office. At the moment all virtual workers must be in the based in UK.

Hybrid workers – For the majority of our workforce we have implemented a hybrid model whereby there is no minimum (or maximum) number of days they must work from an office location. Instead we give them the freedom to decide with their team how efficiently and effectively they can deliver the best service to our clients, work with our colleagues and progress their own personal development whilst recognizing the need to adjust plans where circumstances require. Each hybrid worker is given an allowance to create a workspace in their own home.

At Dentons, we are always open to improvement and challenging ourselves so should you have a current way of working that is different to our model then please let us know at the application stage and we would love to discuss it with you!
