We are one of the few law firms to hold the Investor in People (IIP) status and we place great emphasis on the structure and progression of our training programme. The programme is continually assessed to ensure that it meets the requirements of each trainee solicitor.
As a firm we strongly believe that trainees have a place within our teams and encourage them to contribute to the work of their teams by allocating them responsibility from the outset. At every stage of the training programme, you will spend time with a partner or senior lawyer, although you may also assist other fee earners within the department. Your work will be closely monitored by your principal mentor who will give support, guidance and assistance.
Trainees are encouraged to discuss any problems with their mentor as part of our open door policy which encourages trainees to seek help whenever they need it. We recognise and encourage an eagerness to learn and consider a genuine ambition to succeed to be an attribute. We willingly devote the time required to ensure our trainees are successful – not just in qualifying as a solicitor, but by becoming client-focused and commercially-aware in everything they do.
We ensure that trainees come into contact with clients as early in their contract as appropriate and we offer the opportunity to develop in a friendly, supportive environment.
Please note that our vacancies for 2012 are currently all filled.
