Emily Smith

HR and Administration Manager

Emily joined St Philips Chambers in 2006 and has undertaken a number of roles, which have evolved over the years to the varied role she now holds as HR & Administration Manager. Emily is fully CIPD Qualified and is responsible for all aspects of human resource management for 51 staff and 175 barristers across three sites: Birmingham, Leeds and London. She is also responsible for facilities and building management, and manages various Teams across the business, including: Front of House, Post Room, Events, HR and Facilities. Emily is also Chambers’ appointed Quality Assurance Manager and works closely with Directors of St Philips and various Committees to achieve regulatory and professional standards for the Bar.

In her spare time, Emily likes to travel extensively and spend time with friends and family, and also spends many hours training her lovely (!) dog to behave normally, rather than chewing the contents of her home.
