We are passionate about supporting you to be the very best you can be whilst developing your career at Michelmores.  Michelmores' Learning & Talent Development team is proud to be named winner of the 'Excellence in Learning and Development' category at the 2019 HR in Law Awards. Time and time again, 'Personal Growth' is one of our highest-scoring areas in the annual Sunday Times Best Companies results.

Our structured development programmes provide you with the stretch and challenge that you will need to flourish in your role at Michelmores.  One way in which we achieve this is through our framework of 'Continuous Conversations' which promotes a culture where colleagues meet regularly with their team leader/supervisor to receive feedback, which is both positive and developmental, and where there is opportunity to discuss wider career development goals.

We offer a range of award winning development programmes which will support you through the different stages of your career:


Our ASPIRE programme is designed to equip you with the changing skill set needed to meet the needs of the firm and to prepare you for expanding your role to help future-proof your career.  This programme will immerse you in practical, hands on learning experiences and is a springboard for collaborating and building relationships with other colleagues across the firm.

Essentials Programme

Our Essentials programme brings to life the culture and behaviors that are important to us which will fuel your ambition, creativity and confidence.  Examples of modules include Developing a Growth Mind set, Professor BJ Fogg's ground breaking Tiny Habits, The Brilliance of Resilience and Thoughtful Delegation (linked to the Mindful Business Charter).  This programme is open to all colleagues across the entire firm and is a great way to meet new colleagues from across our different offices/teams and build the skills you need to excel in your role.

Leadership Development

We offer a bespoke approach to Leadership development and invest significantly in the Leadership skills of our Business Support Teams.  The Firm's award for Excellence in Learning and Development in 2019 followed the roll out of a strategic development programme, Leading High Performing Teams. This programme encompassed a range of creative and innovative learning experiences and resources, aimed at fostering collaboration and peer-to-peer learning.  We are also proud to be associated with prestigious Business Schools who support a number of our leaders to equip them with the insights, skills and techniques that help them to meet the demands of a modern leadership role and support them to operate at a more strategic level.


We offer a mentoring scheme which enables you to build connections, raise your profile, surface opportunities and create the perfect environment for developing your career and broader knowledge of the firm.  All of our mentors and mentees receives training to support their mentoring journey to ensure that it gets off to the best possible start.
