Fragomen in Sheffield:

Our Sheffield office is based in the city centre with the added bonus of free on-site parking, as well as several public transport links close by. The office has approximately 150 people working collaboratively and creating a dynamic, positive environment with over 20 different languages being spoken.

As the UK moves through lockdown and Fragomen moves out of a fully working from home model, a regular attendance in the office will be required in this role. The Firm is however transitioning towards an agile working approach, which incorporates a blend of in-person attendance as well as working from home – our aim being to fully leverage our remote working technology and provide a balance for our people in the way that they work.

Whether in the office or working remotely, we are proud of our team spirit and we like to reflect this in the way that we work and everything we do. Our Employee Wellbeing scheme sees us offer great opportunities for everyone at Fragomen to get involved in a variety of activities and initiatives both inside and outside of the office. These range from nutrition talks and cooking courses, to running clubs and on-site massages.
