Blanchards Bailey LLP, accredited by Investors in People, values its staff, and empowers and supports them to grow and develop.

With a team 100+ strong, Blanchards Bailey offers everyone the opportunity to progress their career. Key
competences are defined for each role, and for those that wish to ‘climb the ladder’ in their chosen specialism, they can and do.

It’s more then just a job
The firm is continuing to grow and develop, but its core values remain the same. The comradeship of the staff makes Blanchards Bailey LLP a happy workplace.
Helen Harris, Executive Assistant to Paul Dunlop, Managing Partner, and a vital member of the firm’s Litigation and Disputes team has been at the Firm since 1986. When asked what is it that has led her to stay
with the firm, she said;
“Blanchards Bailey is a large professional standout business in Blandford Forum, where I live. Over my 36 years working at the firm, I have always found the team I work with very friendly. One of the main factors for my long service is that the firm have great family values; they were always accommodating when I was raising a family and working. This has not changed. The firm is also always striving to provide the very best client service.”
Over the bloody moon
To continue to support our staff, the firm recently ran a training session with Over the Bloody Moon, to educate all about the stages of menopause and how it can impact women in the workplace.
Legal Secretary, Charli Finney said; “I found the training very informative. I hadn’t considered how some of my colleagues might be feeling during the menopause, and now I have a clear understanding of how this
could affect someone’s day to day work and how I can help them.”
Our people are the heart and soul of our business. Consequently, we are always keen to hear from highly motivated individuals who share our aims and values.
