Julie Hobson

Gullands appoints wellness partner

Julie Hobson has been appointed to the role of wellness partner within Gullands. In addition to her family team duties, Julie will be promoting wellbeing in the workplace to promote a positive working environment, where individuals can grow their careers to help longer term business growth.

Julie explains: “Staff wellbeing has been rising up the business agenda for several years and the pandemic has really put the spotlight on it and what people want from work. Here at Gullands we pride ourselves on being different to other firms and for several years we have been offering a more flexible approach to help the team achieve a better work life balance. My role will now help to take this a step further. Healthy workplaces encourage individuals, the teams, and the business to flourish and I will be working across the business to look at ways colleagues can be better supported to achieve their full potential.”

“I will be looking at ways to promote good physical and mental health, looking at our working environment, promoting business values, being a supportive ear and giving the team a greater voice and encouraging personal growth. We want the senior team to be the role models for the next generations of employees here at Gullands and we want people to feel supported and rewarded throughout their career.”

And for those considering changing their career and moving to a new firm, there are some vacancies currently advertised on the website and the team are also interested in hearing from those looking to move their legal career to Kent.  Traditionally Gullands is a firm which has attracted people who are looking for senior roles outside of London and for greater flexibility to fit in around their family commitments.

Gullands takes an individual led approach to career development and training along with business development opportunities and the teams are growing and looking to expand. In addition to a flexible and hybrid working policy for most roles, Gullands offers generous holiday entitlement, training, regular staff social events and of course a fascinating range of clients to work with.
