Corporate Social Responsibility
It’s not just the work you do with us that you’ll find rewarding. You could also be involved in any one – or more – of a number of events supporting local, national and international charities. Examples of activities our people have participated in to raise money for charities include cycling from Houston to Austin, running the London Marathon, baking for charity cake sales, dressing down on Jeans for Genes day, and rising to the Three Peaks Challenge.
We also lend support closer to home. On our ‘Incesight’ days we invite pupils from a school in Bermondsey to come in, talk to the team, learn about our work and find out about potential career opportunities. And, every Tuesday lunchtime, some of our team visit the school to help pupils with their reading. We also provide pro bono advice to the Ahoy Project, which enables young, old and disabled people to take part in water sports.
We take our environmental responsibilities seriously too – for example, we actively encourage our employees to take part in our ‘cycle to work’ scheme and have recently launched a ‘paperlite’ initiative. So, however you prefer to do your bit for charity, the community or the environment, there’s always something going on for you to get involved in.
One of our trainee solicitors, Nicola Tune, talks about her involvement with the CSR Committee:
“Ince & Co are well known for their commitment to corporate social responsibility (CSR). We run various CSR programmes, with one of the most popular schemes involving Ince & Co employees reading with pupils at a local school. Knowing how difficult securing a training contract can be, Ince & Co are also part of the mentoring scheme run by the University of Law. Having recently gone through the process, trainees are encouraged to become a mentor. Through the scheme you have the opportunity to support a student in achieving their goal by drawing on your own knowledge of issues such as writing application forms and interviewing skills.”
