The Impact of Paid Afternoons Off on Our Staff

One of our team members seized the opportunity to reconnect with an old friend over a leisurely lunch. After months of being buried in work, this welcome break provided the perfect chance to catch up, reflect, and create cherished memories.

Life-changing indeed!


Another staff member took advantage of their free time to meet their beloved spouse for a delightful lunch date. But the adventure didn’t stop there! They then joyfully took their grandchildren after school, treating them to scrumptious ice creams.

The joy and laughter shared were simply priceless.

What’s it like to work at HGW?

Read on to see comments from staff about working at HGW

‘Having worked in the public sector in educational administration for over 20 years, I was looking for a change in career direction.  An opportunity arose at HGW Solicitors within the Practice Management administration team, and I was fortunate enough to be successful.  There was an element of risk for the Firm and for me to change employment sectors; however, I’m so grateful that the Firm took a chance with hiring me.  I’m now two years into the role and never been happier in a workplace!

Aside the discretionary benefits of an enhanced pension scheme, BUPA, medical and flexitime schemes and additional birthday and Christmas holidays, the benefits of working at HGW are far reaching.

Pleasant offices, friendly colleagues, excellent and supportive management and leadership and plenty of guidance and training helped me settle in swiftly.  There is a strong ethos to maintain a healthy work/life balance, supported with mindfulness and meditation sessions, and we are encouraged to take our lunch breaks.

Compared to public sector life, I find the perks at HGW to be frequent and generous.  We’re provided with a parking permit and staff socials have included meals out, bowling, garden parties and a boat cruise.  Hot weather and we’re allowed to dress down and kept cool with air conditioning and ice-creams.  Christmas time and we’re rewarded with an Amazon voucher and the fun of a Christmas jumper day!

What’s requested in return?  Turn up to work, work hard and do a good job.  It’s a win:win situation for me! 

One Happy Employee!’

What our staff say about us:

Are you happy with the change from your old employer?

“Yes, very happy. It’s been life-changing. I feel (and apparently look) ten years younger! I’m working shorter hours, in a friendly, pleasant environment, doing tasks that I enjoy and ‘that feeling of doom’ has completely gone!

I look forward to going to work every day”.

What have you learnt in the process of moving across to HGW?

“That life is too short to be unhappy at work.

One of my aims in life is to be ‘envious of the life I’m leading, rather than being envious of others’ and this has become a reality”.

What has been the main benefit to working at HGW for you personally?

“HGW has enabled me the flexibility to maintain and progress in my career whilst also looking after my family. I will be forever grateful for the flexibility they offered so that I could put time and energy into my home life as well as my career. That kind of support is not readily available to parents as standard”.  

“I simply would never have qualified as a solicitor if it wasn’t for the support HGW have given me”.

What Our Trainees Say


‘As of March 2023, I have been a trainee solicitor at HG Walker for 6 months. Having left university with limited knowledge of how the law is put into practice, HG Walker provided guidance and support in my learning, allowing me to gain a deeper understanding of the application of the law. I have been supported and encouraged to meet clients, go on home visits and build a relationship with the community.

Nicola Lowe has been incredibly interested in the training contract process under the new SQE qualification route, and very supportive in allowing me time to study both at the office and at home. I truly feel like I am gaining invaluable knowledge not just about the law, but business practice and internal structure, with all the help I could need only an email away.

I am excited to continue my training contract at HG Walker Solicitors and obtain the qualifications I need with their backing.’
