Health and wellbeing

Macfarlanes is committed to the long-term health and wellbeing of all its staff and partners.

Our aim is to create a positive working environment where our colleagues can thrive. We have a ‘wellbeing hub’ which brings together all our wellbeing initiatives that support the physical, financial, emotional and social wellbeing of our people. For example, we have an in-house gym, provide free counselling sessions, and run regular pension and mortgage clinics hosted by external providers.

We are cornerstone members of WorkLife Central which gives all our staff access to a programme of events aimed at helping City professionals. We also offer parental transition coaching to new parents.


Our adjustments policy highlights our commitment to supporting disabled employees, and employees who need additional support on a short or long-term basis, through the implementation of workplace adjustments. The firm understands that disabilities and other circumstances affecting a person’s physical and/or mental health can impact people at work in a wide range of ways and we want to ensure all employees have the support they need working at Macfarlanes. There are a variety of adjustments we make for our employees such as physical adjustments to working environments, assistive IT software installed onto devices and adjustments made to other areas such as working patterns.

We are an equal opportunity employer and if you believe that there are aspects of the recruitment process or job that you anticipate might be difficult for you due to a disability or long term health condition, please contact the Recruitment team as soon as possible and they will be happy to discuss any reasonable adjustments that can be made.
