Life at Kennedys
At Kennedys, our global strength is centred around how talented and important each and every one of our employees is. This is reflected in our culture and we think it is crucial that you enjoy the work you do and your working environment.
Working at Kennedys is exciting, fast paced and varied. We recognise that it is important for you to have a work life balance that allows you the flexibility to live your life. This is possible with our hybrid working policy which will allow you, unless your role requires you to be office based, to enjoy a split of home and office working. When we are working in the office, to ensure we are always approachable, one of our core values, many of our offices are open plan with break out social areas and rooms available for meetings. We also have a “dress for your day” dress code encouraging you to dress casually whenever possible.
To help us develop our distinct culture and as part of our commitment to promoting equality and diversity we have created global and regional diversity and inclusion employee groups. The groups meet regularly to share ideas, discuss new initiatives and advise on what more we could be doing. All employees across the firm are encouraged to get involved where they can and are invited to our regular ‘Let’s start the conversation’ webinars with guest speakers covering topics such as mental health, Black Lives Matter, LGBTQ+ inclusion and Asperger syndrome.
Corporate Social Responsibility and sustainability
Our corporate social responsibility strategy and commitments are aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) which provide us with the framework that can drive action and deliver on our CSR goals. In our quest to create a sense of shared purpose, we actively encourage colleagues to join our growing network of CSR champions to take part in events such as sporting fundraisers, virtual hackathons and pro bono initiatives to champion a better future for our people, our clients and our planet.
Our clients are global and so are we. Find out more about our practice areas and what we do here.
