Training awards 2013

We have been nominated in the Best Recruiter, Best Trainer and Best Training Principal categories of the Training and Recruitment Awards (TARAs) organised by online training and recruitment specialists, LawCareers.Net.
Diane Parker, Partner and Head of Personal Injury said: “We are very proud that the high standard of our training and recruitment is recognised.
“We have a robust training programme and many of the firm’s partners and senior solicitors originally trained with Atherton Godfrey. This is clear evidence of career progression acting as a driving force for the trainees.”
The awards, to be held in London on 16 May, are particularly important as the law firms are nominated by the trainee solicitors themselves and recognise the training principals that are leading the way in the legal sector.
To be shortlisted firms have to demonstrate that their recruitment process if fair and transparent and that applicants are kept well informed throughout the process.
And there must be clear evidence that the trainees are given the appropriate support, encouragement and mentoring to be able to reach their full potential.
The high standard of entries is acknowledged by the event organisers who said: “Every category is hard fought with most decided on a hair’s breath.”
