Networks and culture
Some of the biggest steps you take in your career won’t be at your desk. It’s the people you meet and the relationships you build; the first encounters that prove to be lasting bonds. It all helps in building your career – and helping you settle at our firm.
Our cultural networks
Find role models who reflect your own values. Meet colleagues who share your background, keen to lend advice and share issues. And offer support to cultures outside your own. It’s all there and ready to access, through our cultural networks:
Muslim employees and clients
Working parents and carers
Flexible working colleagues
Black and minority ethnic network
LGBT+ and allies
Disability and carers network
Women in Norton Rose Fulbright
Find new interests
Whoever you meet from our firm, you’ll quickly learn that everyone has their niche. Our sports and social clubs mean you can meet colleagues who share your particular interests. Whatever your hobbies, maybe something will catch your eye below – or maybe you’ll be the first to set up something new

I’m in the Norton Rose Fulbright choir, which is the best thing. We were part of a huge charity music gala last summer, when I was in my first seat. It meant teaming up with a load of other law firm choirs for a big concert in London, right in the city centre. It was an amazing chance to meet new people.

I played softball for the first time here, and everyone who came along was so lovely – even though we got absolutely battered by the other side. We celebrated the small victories though – and it was definitely for the fun, not the winning.

My favourite moment so far - probably the House of Lords vs House of Commons Tug of War. It was a great evening in the gardens at Westminster: relaxing in the sun, being part of a tug of war of our own to raise money for Macmillan, then watching the Lords and MPs battle it out.

I’m part of the firm’s sailing club, and we’ve just done a weekend racing against other law firms around the Isle of Wight. It was brilliant.
