About Winckworth Sherwood

Winckworth Sherwood truly believes in hiring great people, giving them the opportunity to reach their full potential and ultimately deliver a great client experience. So what does this mean in practice?

We take the time to listen to our clients, constantly seeking opportunities to improve our service. We recruit people who share this vision.

The firm prides itself on looking after its employees and nurturing talent. Testament to this is the fact that many of our people, both in legal and support roles, have been with us for ten, twenty or even thirty years.

We recognise that people play a key part in our success and as a result we are committed to their development and well-being. We actively encourage a healthy work-life balance and flexibility, keeping our people motivated and stimulated to deliver great things.

We think our location gives the firm a different feel to many others you’ll find on the opposite side of the Thames, situated in the newly built Arbor building, which is part of Bankside Yards, the UK’s first fossil-fuel free major mixed-use development. Our open plan, future ready office reflects the collaborative, supportive and entrepreneurial culture of the firm.

Please note that we only work with our preferred supplier list of recruitment agencies. 

Equal Opportunities

Winckworth Sherwood is an equal opportunities employer and we embrace diversity. We welcome applications from a wide range of qualified candidates and vacancies are open and accessible to everyone on the basis of their individual qualities and personal merit.

Our recruitment process and selection criteria do not discriminate on the grounds of disability; gender; marital status; age, race; racial group; colour; ethnic or national origin; nationality; religion or belief; or sexual orientation; other than in those instances where the firm is exercising permitted positive action.



I joined the firm over 8 years ago, and although it has changed dramatically since then, the supportive and friendly atmosphere remains. Having progressed from trainee to associate, I have had the opportunity to move around the firm and carry out a diverse range of work.

Associate in Employment

I know it’s a cliché, but part of what makes WS such an interesting and unique place to work is the diversity of practice areas – you have departments such as Parliamentary and Ecclesiastical, alongside Real Estate, Employment and Social Housing. The friendliness and openness of the people here creates a very rewarding working environment.

Library and Information Manager

It is a genuinely friendly atmosphere to work in where employees are given the opportunity to realise their potential both personally and professionally – I can vouch for that having started as a programmer/analyst in 1998!
