We are a Level 1 B-BBEE contributor.
Cheadle Thompson & Haysom is committed to transformation, diversity, and inclusion.
Our approach to recruitment is reflective of these commitments. Our firm is much more than just a B-BBEE Level 1 Legal practice. More than 55% of our directorship is Black and more than 30% is made up of Women. Even beyond our leadership, approximately 70% of our professional staff is Black.
One of the firm’s defining attributes is our commitment to meaningful investment in the talent pipeline. We traditionally employ only a limited number of candidate attorneys each year. Our approach is driven by our desire to properly invest in and train our junior professionals so that they are equipped with the knowledge and expertise to eventually lead the firm into the future. By and large, we therefore strive to retain our candidate attorneys beyond their articles of clerkship and afford them the opportunity to progress their careers within the firm.
This process extends well beyond just issues of race and gender. We believe that the cultivation of excellence embodies the diversity of thought, belief, access, and opportunity. Many of our directors have proudly come through this process.
