Become part of
something special.

Having been a part of Napthens Solicitors for many years we know the struggles HR directors and health and safety managers face with traditional firms and the impersonal service they offer. At AfterAthena we believe there is another way, and our mission is to provide a modern, approachable, and reliable service to all. Join us, and become part of something special.

Why work for us

The UK’s political landscape is changing and as a result significant growth opportunities exist across the North demonstrating a real time of change. Working together with our people and our clients, we are seeing that sharing learning, experience and knowledge is delivering our own sustainable growth in line with our strategic plan – together really is better.

Our people work hard to support our clients, our communities and each other, always willing to go the extra mile to succeed.

We’re known for providing solution focused advice to clients and in fact we’ve won numerous awards for doing just that – including recently being Highly Commended at the People in Law awards.

The businesses we support are household names, big players making big waves in their individual sectors. For them, it helps that we truly understand their business, and are able to deliver exceptional technical advice along with superb customer service; working together to achieve their strategic goals and best possible outcomes.

Our aim is to work with our clients for life and we are unwavering in our pursuit of this – always looking towards the next innovations in advice and service, and asking our people to help us shape this.

We welcome individuality – it’s what helps set us apart and makes here a great place to work.

We want people who like to keep learning – so we provide focused development opportunities, sponsorship and study leave options to help make the best version of you.

And we’re not just talking about boosting your technical skills. We want you to develop you personal and leadership skills too to help provide a well rounded career, and ensure you achieve your own goals. We support you in this with regular one-to-ones, supportive feedback, mentoring and a matched personal development plan.

Offices in great locations, supportive, experienced, ambitious colleagues, quality clients; and a huge amount of opportunity to keep your career moving in the right direction.

Like the sound of that? Well, we’d love to speak with you.
