Birketts receives two nominations for LawCareers.Net Training and Recruitment Awards 2015
Birketts, the multi award-winning, top 100 law firm based in the East of England, has been nominated for two awards at this year’s LawCareers.Net Training and Recruitment Awards.
Birketts has been nominated as ‘Best Trainer - Medium Regional Firm’ and ‘Best Work Placement Scheme - Regional Firm’.
Firms are assessed on their recruitment process, the training they offer and the quality of their work placement schemes, and then compared with their peers. The winners will be announced at an awards presentation ceremony that takes place on Thursday 21 May 2015 at Gibson Hall in London.
Shaun Savory, human resources director, said: “We are delighted to have been nominated in two categories at this year’s awards. The awards honour the firms and individuals who offer recruits the best possible start to their legal careers and it’s a privilege to be recognised within the legal profession.”
Shaun continued: “Birketts offers eight training contracts a year for law and non-law graduates from a variety of backgrounds. Our training contract comprises four 'seats', with each one lasting six months. Our overall aim is to give our trainees a higher level of responsibility than they might experience elsewhere so that they develop the required skills in advance of qualification.”
