Keoghs Journeys

Rhys Phillips, Lead Lawyer

Keoghs is a happy and, importantly, a fair place to work. I would not hesitate recommending the firm to any prospective candidate.

Rhys Phillips 2

At just over seven months in the role I can honestly say this firm stands for something beyond simply increasing profits. Keoghs has a ‘people first’ mentality and prioritises the wellbeing of its staff; offering more than what has become the industry ‘norm’.

  • In relation to mental health, not only was I offered access to 24/7 helplines but also to a full subscription to the Headspace app;
  • Chargeable relief / time credits for annual leave, etc. meaning I did not have to double my working time before that week’s holiday;
  • A focus on designing safe and collaborative working environments so that even those working remotely (like me) feel very much part of the team;
  • Managers who encourage opportunities and incentives to learn, develop and grow;
  • Practical development frameworks - tried, tested and tweaked by employees - which define clear and specific expectations for what success looks like in any given job and how progression, if that is of interest, can be achieved.

Keoghs is a happy and, importantly, a fair place to work. I would not hesitate recommending the firm to any prospective candidate.
