Working with us

I have been working for Crane & Staples since 2007 – so that must tell you something! The Partners look after their staff and our wellbeing is of utmost importance to them. I feel extremely supported and have been given opportunities to progress and adapt my role over the years. Quite frankly I could never imagine working anywhere else.

Tracey Fenner, Senior Conveyancing Assistant

We understand that working in law can be stressful and demanding, but is ultimately a highly rewarding career that, for many, is a dream job.

As a warm and friendly firm that serves a range of diverse clients from our local community, we put our team at the heart of everything we do. Investing in outstanding, enthusiastic, and ambitious people has ensured our success for over 80 years.

We recognise how passionate our staff are about helping their clients, developing their knowledge and upholding the rule of law. This is why we promote a workplace culture that helps our staff to learn, collaborate, succeed and, above all, love their jobs.

There is a lot of support available regardless of your position within the firm. The partners are very approachable and are also flexible around the needs of the employees.

As staff it is nice to know we are highly thought of by the partners, as we will randomly receive thank you emails, biscuits in the post (yum!), and team-building activities – and these continued remotely during COVID so I never felt like I was isolated from the rest of the team.
