You will be supported throughout your training not only by your supervisor and peers, but also a dedicated trainee committee. Our trainee committee is made up of partners, legal directors and senior associates that represent each of our locations and business groups. Alongside regular reviews, where the committee will check in on your progress and development, they are also always on hand to provide advice and support.
Alongside the technical, legal training you will also have the opportunity to attend a programme designed especially for our trainees to enhance your business skills and personal effectiveness. Not only does this ensure you have the foundations you need to continue to grow in your career, but also provides a valuable opportunity to network with your peers.
As acknowledged by our A* in the peer support category from Legal Cheek, our trainees ranked their colleagues as being highly supportive, always on hand to share advice and guidance.
Being a part of Hill Dickinson is about more than the work you do in each of your seats, and you will have the opportunity to get actively involved in our corporate responsibility agenda, diversity and inclusion networking groups and social committees. We offer an extensive range of benefits designed to help meet your personal and social needs, as well as your professional needs, to encourage a healthy work life balance – including giving you your birthday off!
