Equality & diversity

Monckton Chambers is committed to promoting a diverse and inclusive working environment and we observe an Equality and Diversity Policy. We invite applications from excellent candidates from all backgrounds. We seek to increase further the diversity of Chambers and particularly welcome applications from members of groups which are under-represented at the Bar. Applications are anonymised. We are happy to make reasonable adjustments throughout the recruitment process for any candidates with a disability if so required.  All offers are made strictly on merit.

Monckton Chambers uses the Rare Contextual Recruitment System which allows us to understand each applicant’s achievements in the context in which they have been gained. We seek to recruit the best people, from every background, regardless of their personal circumstances, and the CRS helps us to do that. The CRS is only ever used to screen people in, not out and under no circumstances are candidates ever marked down for supplying this information.
