About HR and D&I

The SJP is a trusted HR and D&I recruitment partner for many prestigious law firms throughout the UK. We have a strong track record of placing high calibre candidates in Human Resources, Employee Relations (ER), Learning & Development (L&D), Reward and Recognition (R&R), Recruitment and importantly, Diversity & Inclusion on permanent, fixed-term, and temporary contracts.

Countless studies have shown that diverse teams perform better, and the business world is striving to address the under-representation and inequality that has held back progress. If candidate pools and resulting hires are not sufficiently diverse, then the talent management activities which follow will not grow sufficiently diverse leaders for the future. Organisations that fail to build an inclusive culture are limited in their ability to retain diverse talent.

As part of a global movement, D&I is at the forefront of the corporate agenda, and our clients understand the need to honour their pledges to increase diversity in law. We have seen significant investment in this area, with a strong D&I function a crucial element of a successful modern law firm.
