At Cleaver Fulton Rankin we are more than just a law firm, we believe in conducting our business in a socially responsible manner, to contribute to the communities in which we operate, to minimise our impact on the environment and to respect the needs of employees, clients and other stakeholders.
We were delighted that our Corporate Social Responsibility work has been recognised externally and we recently won the Best Community Contribution Award at the 2014 LawNet Awards.
Supporting the Community
At Cleaver Fulton Rankin we engage all our employees to help charitable causes both financially and in a practical way. Each year our employees choose a charity of choice to support for a one year period ensuring that all funds raised remain in the local community
Having raised over £100,000 for Cancer Focus, the Alzheimer’s Society, The Prince’s Trust, Northern Ireland Hospice and Macmillan Cancer Support, this year the firm is supporting Barnardo’s Northern Ireland by hosting bake sales and dress down days and organising a range of events such as a Pirates of the Caribbean Charity Cinema Night and Casino Night.
The firm believe in creating a knowledgeable and skilled future workforce in Northern Ireland by enhancing employability through our work experience programmes, summer placement scheme and solicitor trainee programme.
Cleaver Fulton Rankin solicitors also regularly present to students at University and senior school level to develop interest in the legal market and the career opportunities available within a law firm.
