Why Barcan+Kirby?

At Barcan+Kirby we embrace all routes to qualification as a lawyer and will provide help, support and training – regardless of the path you choose to take. We make sure you have regular personal development reviews with your manager so you can discuss your career ambitions and progression plan.

We are proud of the fact that many of our senior legal staff, including Partners, began their legal careers at Barcan+Kirby as business support staff or Trainee Solicitors.

As a firm, we strive to ensure that you’ll enjoy a good work/life balance and that this will be supported by your team and the wider business.

What our legal staff think

“I have genuinely been really impressed with the company and its values, and am really pleased I joined the firm.

It was a bizarre time (Covid-19) to be looking for and starting a new job, and I think the whole process was made really easy for me. The communication from the firm prior to starting was fantastic and since joining, everyone has gone above and beyond to welcome me to the firm.”

Emily Williamson | Associate

“During the recruitment process, you spoke very fondly of the firm. Unfortunately, there are some firms that say things about how marvellous they are just to fill a role, but I can honestly say everything that you said about Barcan+Kirby was true. This is a really lovely and supportive firm to work in.”

Terrie Ross | Associate

“I first heard about the position through Cardiff University and found the information on our website very helpful (videos/Q&A etc.).

My interview was very relaxed and I felt I had the opportunity to answer questions thoroughly and discuss the firm in detail with the interviewers.

The induction was very useful and was a good chance to meet people before I started in my first seat the following week.”

Stephen Biggs | Trainee Solicitor, now Solicitor
