Our investment in you

Michelmores really does put its people first: we invest a lot of time in developing and supporting people's career aspirations. We provide the environment, encouragement and opportunities for you to flourish, both personally and professionally. We set the bar high in terms of our expectations, but in return we guarantee to provide you with structured development programmes and clear progression opportunities throughout every stage of your career. 

We recruit to retain and see trainees as the firm's future Associates and Partners, and as such are committed to their successful development. 

As a Trainee with the Firm, we will allow you to be yourself, and your training contract will be tailored to suit your individual needs.  We provide excellent supervision, which is what you would expect, but also the opportunity to work with some fantastic clients on great quality work, from a very early stage of your training. 

We believe that our commitment and investment in our Trainees is vital to the continuing success and growth of the Firm. We are Lex 100 Winners in five different categories: Job satisfaction, Quality of work, Low stress levels, Confidence of being kept on and Inclusivness.
