2015

"The graduate recruitment process at the firm would be even better if trainees received guidance during the entirety of their training contract - for instance, improving the notice given for the change of seats would be great."
First year trainee, Birmingham
"Personally I would have liked greater input into my first year seat selection, as all seats throughout the first year are decided in advance of the training contract. That said, knowing my seats ahead of starting them did give me more time to prepare for them."
First year trainee, Birmingham
"There could be more structured events organised for trainees."
First year trainee, Birmingham
"There should be more departments on offer to trainees, as it would have been great to experience work in even more of the departments that Irwin Mitchell is comprised of, for there are a great number."

"It would be good to have the opportunity for secondment or to do a seat in a different office."
First year trainee, Birmingham

"Give trainees more sway on where they would like to go for their seats and actually take that into account."
First year trainee, Sheffield
"I would allow trainees to choose seats and allow them to change seats if they do not like the seats they are undertaking."
