Our Health and Human Rights Group welcome speculative applications from barristers with either a growing or established practice in clinical negligence and personal injury who are outstanding and who share Chambers' core values.

We support broad ranging cross disciplinary practices and are seeking practitioners with a strong commitment to Human Rights who wish to develop practices centred around clinical negligence and personal injury which we recognise often features heavily in related practice areas.

To initiate a confidential discussion, please email contact our Senior Practice Manager, Sian Wilkins, or relevant Practice Manager, Callum Stebbing. Alternatively, tentative enquiries can be sent to recruitment@doughtystreet.co.uk

We encourage candidates to give us a full picture of any mitigating circumstances, including neurodiversity and late diagnosis neurodivergence if applicable.

We encourage and welcome applications from women, Black, Asian and minority ethnic individuals, neurodiverse and disabled people and those who are LGBT+, as well as candidates from other underrepresented groups.

We encourage candidates to give us a full picture of any mitigating circumstances, including neurodiversity and late diagnosis neurodivergence if applicable.

Guaranteed Interview Scheme 

Doughty Street Chambers will offer a guaranteed interview 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 are a disabled applicant and wish to take advantage of this scheme it may be necessary to discuss this with those who review applications. If you are a disabled person and you prefer not to disclose this fact, unfortunately this may mean that you cannot be guaranteed an interview even if you meet the minimum requirements for the position. 

Should you wish to discuss reasonable adjustments or anything else relating to a disability in connection with this recruitment, in confidence and with someone unconnected to the recruitment process, please contact Doughty Street Chambers: recruitment@doughtystreet.co.uk
