25 days annual leave (pro rata) plus paid birthday leave
To make you feel special on your birthday, we give everyone their birthday off. If your birthday falls on a non-working day, you can take this day off on an alternative day during the week of your birthday.
This will be a paid day off, which we hope will give you even more reason and more opportunity to celebrate your birthday.

Private Healthcare – Simply Health Subscription
All our employees are provided with a Simply Health subscription at no cost. These subscriptions entitle our employees to same day 24/7 virtual GP consultations as well as discounted dental care and other wellbeing features.

Automatic Pension Enrolment
We want to give all our employees the opportunity to start to plan for their retirement therefore we offer a Group Personal Pension Plan operated by Scottish Widows.
All employees who are classed as ‘eligible’ under the Automatic Enrolment rules, will be automatically enrolled into our standard pension scheme after completion of 3 months service. Our minimum employee pension contribution is 4% of your salary and the Firm match this with a 4% employer pension contribution, which gives you an 8% total pension contribution.
We also offer employees the opportunity to enhance their pension contributions through pension salary sacrifice. This allows us to mutually agree to pay you differently and enables both the employee and employer to benefit from National Insurance (NI) savings. Not only do you gain from savings on your NI but you also benefit as we pass on 50% of the savings we make on employer NI to you.
Life Insurance – Death in Service
Admittedly not the most cheerful benefit to draw your attention to. However, this is a significant benefit that could provide financial security (equivalent to 3 times your salary) to your nominated beneficiaries in the event of your death during your employment with Eric Robinson Solicitors.
All permanent employees (under 65 years old) are automatically entitled to this benefit on commencement, so you have the benefit of the peace of mind and protection offered by this scheme from your very first day until you reach the age of 65.
Discounted Legal Services
Our employees may be entitled to discounted legal services depending on the nature and extent of the matter and we may also be able to offer discounts to close family members who you refer to us.
Progression and Development Plan – `Develop Me`
Lip service, empty words and unfulfilled promises can often be the words of employees when progression and development is promised but not delivered.
`Develop Me` is a career development, enhancement and progression program that is designed to implement a career pathway, which is clear and achievable. This pathway can encompass:
- Enhancing current role
- Working towards promotion through our Status Level Upgrades
- Enrolling in our Paralegal Program (where applicable)
- Taking on more responsibility in current role
- Determining how to reach desired career goals
- Work shadowing a colleague
All new employees to Eric Robinson will be enrolled into an Onboarding Program. A streamlined induction not only ensures that new employees feel welcome, it also provides early career support and orientation. The Onboarding program is designed to cover the first 3 months of a new employee’s employment.
When employees start a new role, you can often feel lost, not up to speed, or have no-one to ask. Therefore, we assign all our new employees a `Buddy` from day one. They will be a guide, able to share knowledge, assist in department procedure and be a `go to` person.
