The scheme in action.
You will work alongside a partner or associate, who will supervise, direct, encourage and coach you during your time with us. You will also be matched with a current trainee, who will help you to settle in, become part of the team and involve you in a range of interesting, challenging work.
You will be included in every aspect of working life, from group events to firm-wide training sessions. Your work will involve research, drafting documents and letters, minute taking and arranging meetings – and you will also work directly with our clients.
You will also be assigned a group project, which will be presented by you and your team to members of the firm at the end of your stay.
As well as an initial welcome lunch with all our trainees, we also arrange a ‘partner’ lunch for you, where you can chat to and get to know our partners, on a one to one basis. There will also be lunches with various associates and the HR team. We actively encourage you to get involved in our numerous social events as we feel this is an important way for you to get to know us and for us to get to know you.
