Our Resolve. Your Resolution.

Life at Harrowells

Our culture is all about being professional, supportive, approachable and friendly and these values shape how we build a sense of common purpose across our firm.

Our aim is to ensure that your day-to-day experience of working at Harrowells is positive and we have a range of programmes, initiatives and activities to achieve precisely that.

A great place to work

We build a sense of shared purpose in a number of ways. We have a busy programme of social and charity fundraiser events in a variety of formats across the year. These are organised by our Harrowells Social team and some of the highlights over the past 12 months have included:

  • Inter-departmental Steps Challenge
  • Team entry in the Millie Wright Children’s Charity Fun Run
  • York Legal Walk
  • Inter-office virtual quiz very much in the style of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire!
  • Summer Saturday at Thirsk Races
  • Headingley Hundred cricket
  • Pottery Painting evening
  • Wear It Pink breast cancer fundraiser
  • Pumpkin Carving competition

“I feel so supported and so looked after I can’t praise them highly enough”

Mandy Ward, Client Services Assistant, York St Saviourgate

A social programme shaped by you

All these activities are featured on our firm-wide intranet, so that everyone knows what is going on and feels included, whether or not they wish to take part in a particular event. The Harrowells Social programme is very much shaped by our people, with regular requests for ideas and feedback so that activities are relevant, accessible and fun.

“My favourite aspect of the job role is working with the people here; we’ve got a great team at Harrowells”

Nicole Dawson, Senior Solicitor, Agricultural Property, Pocklington

A shared sense of direction

Alongside the Harrowells Social programme, we also run Strategy and Engagement Roadshows twice a year. The provide an opportunity for everyone to meet members of the senior management team in small groups and discuss the overall direction of our business and how they can play their part in that.

In a nutshell, the people who thrive in our business are those who are motivated to pull together and look after our clients and each other.   We are committed to making the firm a great place to work.
