Matrix strives to be an equal opportunities employer and is committed to diversity amongst its staff, members and trainees. We therefore encourage and welcome applications from women, people of minority ethnic origin, people with disabilities and those who are LGBT+, as well as candidates from other groups which are underrepresented in the legal sector. We are happy to make reasonable adjustments to enable disabled candidates to demonstrate their suitability for the job.
Please read our information on our Equality & Diversity activities to see what we do to promote equality.
We currently have one vacancy.
Office Cover Panel
We are currently looking to expand our pool of Office Cover Panel. Those on the Office Cover Panel will be required to cover a varied number of roles in Matrix depending on staff absences and limited resources.
The nature of this role means that there are no fixed hours or number of days to work per year. Members of the panel would be contacted when there is a business need, such as temporary increased work load or staff shortages. Because the work is sporadic, members of the panel will be contacted, often at short notice, to see if they are available to come into the office. The Office Cover Panel will be effectively “on call”.
Interested? What now?
Please send a CV, cover letter and the completed Equality & Diversity monitoring form to Lindsay Clarke at recruitment @matrixlaw.co.uk or via hard copy to Matrix, Griffin Building, Gray’s Inn, London WC1R 5LN.
Please note that CVs/cover letters will be anonymised prior to the shortlisting process.

Information for disabled candidates
Matrix offers guaranteed interviews to applicants who are disabled within the meaning of the Equality Act 2010, provided they meet the minimum requirements of the position for which they have applied.

If you wish to take advantage of the guaranteed interview scheme and are happy for your disabled status to be disclosed to the assessors, please mention this in your cover letter. If you are a disabled person and you prefer not to disclose this fact to the individuals who assess applications then you do not have to mention it on your cover letter, however this may mean that you cannot be guaranteed an interview even if you meet the minimum requirements for the position.
