CAREERS

When asked: “What is the best thing about working for Pardoes?” the resounding response from our staff is: “The people”!

Our team is the most important aspect of the business. Without total cohesion and a happy staff base we would not be able to deliver the expert legal advice to our clients with the empathy or care which we do on a daily basis.

Across our three offices in Bridgwater, Taunton and Yeovil our dedicated staff are committed to the same objective: supporting and providing an outstanding service for our local community. To continually be able to provide such a service for our clients we collectively contribute to creative solutions and every voice is heard.

We invite people to join us who share this drive and desire to succeed through providing an exceptional level of personal service for individuals, families and businesses, protecting their interests now and in the future. 

Whether you are looking for a fee earning or a support role, we would love to hear from you.
