Allens has long been committed to inclusion and diversity. Harnessing the many talents of our people helps us connect with our clients, solve complex problems, innovate and attract even more great people. As a team, we have many different stories, but we stand side-by-side in delivering exceptional outcomes for our clients and communities.
Allens' inclusion and diversity strategy focuses on structural, behavioural and 'hearts and minds' opportunities across a range of pillars, including gender, LGBTQ+, parents and carers, Indigenous, social mobility and flexible work. We're looking to build on inclusion as a strength, mainstream flexible work and actively support and manage our talent throughout their careers.
Allens uses a contextual recruitment system (Rare) as part of our clerkship selection process.
Rare is an optional recruitment survey that helps us to increase diversity by combining educational, socioeconomic and personal information to provide a more complete picture of a candidate's background, allowing us to better understand challenges and achievements beyond what might appear in a CV.
Our approach to flexible work recognises that everyone needs balance.
The outcomes of our work are more important than how, where or when work gets done, and we empower our people to make choices that balance the needs of our clients, our business and their personal circumstances.
We know our people will require different kinds of flexibility at different times in their lives and we encourage them to use flex to support a fulfilling, sustainable career. At Allens, flexible work is for everyone.
