One Small Change

2015

"I think that communication from HR on seat change timings and the NQ process should be improved."
Second year trainee, Newcastle
"I think that some of the compulsory Professional Skills Courses should be at the start of the training contract as part of the induction process. I think that this would help the trainee group get to know each other, as we are all placed throughout the firm's offices."
Second year trainee, Southampton
"We would like to be able to get all the trainees together more often for social events as we are often split into groups according to location."
First year trainee, Leeds
"There should be more support staff provided to help with 'non-chargeable' tasks, such as an events coordinator."
First year trainee, Bristol
"Seat rotations could be announced further in advance."
First year trainee, Newcastle

2014

"I would like there to be more discussion around first seats."
First year trainee, Newcastle
"I would like an induction week, at one location where all trainees have to stay together and there are social events/activities throughout the whole week. Currently it is two days at either the Bristol or Newcastle office without social events outside of the work environment and it does not give you enough opportunity/time to properly get to know the trainees from all of the offices."
First year trainee, Newcastle
"I would get all the trainees together the day before we start to socialise and relieve the tension on day one!"
First year trainee, Bristol
"Perhaps the pay could be a little higher for trainees."
First year trainee, Bristol
"A little more involvement from the training principal and a more structured approach to appraisals would be useful."
Second year trainee, Leeds
"The seat rotations could be handled more effectively."
Second year trainee, Bristol
"Ensuring that partners have enough time to be supervisors before giving them the extra work load could be beneficial."
Second year trainee, Leeds
"A stronger alignment between the north and south offices could prevent a divide forming."
Second year trainee, Bristol
