Learning and Development

Reach your next level

Becoming part of Birketts’ story means joining a firm that empowers its colleagues and invests in their career. Our dedicated Learning and Development Team is on hand to provide bespoke support and guidance to ensure our people can perform their roles effectively and with confidence. 

Learning and Development

Next level support for every colleague

We believe that every colleague should have the opportunity to expand and enhance their knowledge, no matter which area of the firm they work for or where they are in their career path.  

Each of the firm’s business areas has its own dedicated Talent Management Framework, providing clarity and transparency to the skills-based and behavioural competencies expected at each career level. Each framework details the learning and development opportunities available at each stage of an individuals’ career. This is supported by our Learning Management System which hosts a range of bitesize training modules that are regularly updated and easily accessible. 

Birketts is also dedicated to enhancing learning through sector specific training courses. To date, over 125 individuals have undertaken professional development qualifications that have been supported by us.

We are proud to have built our very own bespoke legal training and development programmes, with support available at each stage of your legal career.  

Our programmes are designed to help our colleagues excel in their careers by focusing on the skills and values we believe make a great Birketts lawyer. Each course is filled with key guidance and practical knowledge delivered by our own experts and external providers.
