We see the human

At Cirio our warm and encouraging culture sets the foundation for our success. We aim to see the human in everyone and make sure there is room for individual initiatives. Our culture rests on four core values:

  • Respect
  • Accountability
  • Cooperation
  • Pursuit

We aim to treat everyone as we ourselves want to be treated. We take accountability for our professional lives and results. We aim to cooperate to produce the best results, building on everyone’s strenghts. And we aim to always think outside of the box and to improve the way we are and work.

Gender equality and diversity are of course key to us, being natural applications of our core values and our aim to contribute to a better society.

We have a very high ambition and that is to make work at a high-end business law firm truly sustainable. Working at Cirio is often tough, this cannot be denied. As in any other business law firm of this calibre, work at Cirio sometimes means working long days. But a tough work does not necessarily mean that it must be extremely stressful, destroy all private life and eliminate work-life balance. Through facilitating technology but not least through more modern ways of working, in collaboration in teams for example, it is possible to improve efficiency, even out workloads and over time build a life where this often extremely fun and challenging work can be combined with the many other things that you value in life. This is our ambition.

Your career

There is not one career track at Cirio. There are many. We hire skilled, ambitious individuals from various background who wants to grow with us. Some are talents straight out of the university, others are lawyers who already have had a long career and we also take know that without excellent HR and administrative staff our organisation would not work.

We believe in enabling different careers at Cirio, knowing that the most important thing is to support individuals who want to live highly successful professional lives but also wish to spend time on other things they find valuable.

Regardless of where you come from you will take part in our ambitious career program.

If you eventually leave, we want to have made sure that Cirio has been an excellent bridge to a highly successful career somewhere else.
