The benefits of being a top 50 partner

What benefits do you get at work? If you’re scratching your head with a free corporate pen, check out what some of your competitors get: money for new luggage, cash for spouses and an on-site GP.

These are some of the unusual partner benefits among the UK’s top 50 law firms, revealed in a survey conducted by recruitment consultancy Sainty Hird & Partners. So if you’re already cursing your way through an expensive baguette and dialling the nearest legal recruiter, there you have it.

Not sure which firm to pick? Well-travelled partners at one firm are offered an annual baggage allowance of £100 “based on the fact that partners travel a great deal and therefore might need to buy new luggage every year”.

 Life is unfair.
