Marketing Manager – We ripped up the Law Firm Blueprint – 18865 Ref: 18865

£45,000 Plus Benefits

Really?

Come and find out!

Modern, hybrid working.

Ok great, we have your attention. You can see we do things a bit differently at Hedges.

We may have a 235-year heritage as a Private Client Law Practice, but that doesn’t mean we’re a stale, dull & suppressive legal firm, like so many. No chance.

Whilst we ‘doff our hats’ to past custodians, as current incumbents it’s our job to innovate, excite, and ensure that when future generations look at our pictures lining the wall, not only can they see what a nice and friendly bunch we are, BUT also that we were the ‘dream team’, the mavericks, the leaders in the field, the game-changers that make Hedges one of the most beautifully different law firms of its time.

In short – you will own part of the company. (We’ll just let that sink in). We are the fifth employee-owned law firm in the UK, meaning you will have share in the business’ success from day one. There’s no ‘buy-in’ and no liability with our innovative trust shareholder structure. It's really special.

Last year was our biggest revenue year yet and we have ambitious and exciting plans for the future – there’s still so much to do and achieve and we’re not happy unless we’re pushing boundaries… And we want you and your big-creative-digital-allround-geeky-obsesssive-restless-rebellious marketing brain to be part of that.

We’re a natural home for the mavericks – the people who don’t fit, the risk takers, the disrupters, the challengers. Want to join us?
