Our ESG credentials

Text reads; "Our platform candidate pool is: 59% female. 52.8% BAME. 79.4% state school educated."

We love the legal industry, which is why Flex Legal factors social mobility and a positive industry impact into everything we do. Here's just some of the ways we're doing it:

  • Our platform is unbelievably diverse: The lawyers and paralegals that power our platform come from a huge range of social and academic backgrounds. Every placement we facilitate could represent a real career opportunity for someone, and we love that!
  • We run social-mobility initiatives all year round: From our free junior networking / soft skills events (our Junior Lawyer Lunches) to our annual legal internship with Diageo, actively trying to improve the experience of upcoming legal professionals. We also produce instructional inclusivity reports for senior industry figures.
  • Our QWE Journal is entirely free: We are big believers in the SRA’s vision that the SQE can offer more “non-traditional” aspiring solicitors the chance to qualify. We created the UK's first Qualifying Work Experience tracking tool. It’s SRA-complaint, audit-proof, and free to use, by any aspiring solicitor who wants to use it.

On top of all this, our Flex Trainee scheme is award winning, and helping brilliant individuals from under-represented backgrounds qualify as solicitors with FTSE250 organisations. We’re actively helping the biggest businesses in the country make strides in D&I and ESG!
