As one of the seven trainees qualifying at Michelmores, it is great to see that all of our intake will be pursuing careers at the Firm. It is particularly encouraging to see the spread of disciplines and offices – each of Michelmores’ three departments (Business, Private Client and Real Estate) will have newly qualified solicitors joining in September.
Michelmores were delighted to recently be awarded “Best Recruiter – Medium Regional Firm” at the LawCareers.Net Training & Recruitment Awards which demonstrates the Firm’s investment in the development of its trainees.
The trainees qualifying at Michelmores this September include:
Seema Nauna – Agricultural Property Litigation
Jo Cowen – Employment
There are many reasons why I was excited to accept a position at Michelmores, but I have highlighted the main ones below:
The process itself was surprisingly smooth. HR were keen to start talking to us early about our preferences so that they could establish whether there was a business need for a newly qualified in that area. I think that I speak on behalf of all trainees in my intake in saying that it is comforting to know how hard HR and Team Leaders work to ensure there is a position in your chosen department and location. Once we had indicated our preferences, HR released a list of NQ jobs and we then had around a month to apply for up to two roles (by way of CV and covering letter). We were informed of our job offers around a week later and the signed the contract two weeks after that!
The prospect of qualifying in September is as exciting as it is nerve-wracking, but I’m looking forward to continuing my career at Michelmores after such a varied, fun and challenging training contract.
