We're going back to being Co-op

172 years ago a group of pioneers in Rochdale created an idea that changed the world. They believed that when people work together, they're stronger. And that principles are just as important as profits. They were pioneers. And they left us a legacy that's never been more important or relevant than it is today.

That's why we're going back to being Co-op. We want to change the world all over again, and we hope you'd like to join us on our journey. So, if you believe in our purpose, and are passionate about building a career in Legal Services, join us and make a real contribution to the revival of an iconic British brand.
