Move Your Mind

Aim beyond pure legal knowledge. Beyond commercial advice. Be known for something more: clarity of thought and an instinct for problem solving that can influence leading businesses and organisations the world over.

Easy? Hardly. Our ambition as a firm means we need people with a rare kind of mindset: an openness to the way you work, agility to the way you think, and a strong desire to keep evolving as a professional.

Join us and we’ll help you enrich and expand your worldview, grow your skills and influence new ways of thinking. In other words, we’ll help you move minds.

Let’s start by moving yours.

How we work together

The different cultures, communities and countries within which we operate around the world are immensely varied. The way we actually interact with each other isn’t. The simple fact is: people here like working with each other. We help and challenge each other to develop our thinking and deliver our best work. In every office, you’ll find different perspectives, backgrounds, cultures and personalities to learn from. Explore a few of them here.

And, with our partners and lawyers working across 10 different time zones, we are able to respond to our clients' needs wherever and whenever they need us.

Our people are our greatest asset.

Career journey

Variety of experience is essential in developing the kind of expertise that will set you apart. At Ashurst, you won’t just be learning from the past or from specifics. You will also be developing the instincts to tackle the most complex issues in international law, and building an understanding of each client's business.

The ways in which we support you to do this are equally varied. Structured training helps you develop the highest standards of technical legal knowledge. Honest, transparent conversations ensure you know exactly what we expect from you. Useful, constructive feedback helps you learn. And a network of highly respected figures will not only inspire you, they will actively mentor your development.

  • Face-to-face interviews

    We believe in focusing on the individual so we don't run assessment centres. If you’re invited to participate in our selection process, you will have two face-to-face interviews with different people (including the HR team, lawyers and partners). The interviews will be conducted partly in Spanish and partly in English. In those interviews, we will discuss your CV and assess your technical knowledge and communication skills. The interviews will also test the behaviours we’re looking for through both competency and scenario-based questions.

  • What we look for

    • Graduates in Spanish law (or double degrees that include law).
    • Brilliant academic record and aptitude for the law.
    • Good communication skills and a high level of written and spoken English.
    • Excellent team players, with a good sense of humour and interesting life experiences.
