Supporting young talent

We have relationships with several clients, schools and community organisations where our staff volunteer or act as a mentor to provide guidance to aspiring lawyers, students and people in potentially vulnerable situations who need some support and guidance.

We have provided apprenticeship schemes in our Legal, Finance, IT, HR and Marketing teams for school and college leavers.

We also have a role to play in encouraging students to consider the law and professional services as future careers and we regularly hold discussion groups with students at different universities to share experiences of what it is like to work in the sector.

We also support talented athletes who are looking to develop their professional sporting careers: 

Open recruitment

Levelling up recruitment is about ensuring that careers and professions are open to people of all backgrounds through transparent, accessible and open recruitment practices. During 2020 we refreshed our assessment processes for the Gateley Legal trainee programme using the assessment skills of Amberjack to introduce a virtual assessment centre which is designed specifically to improve diversity and minimise unconscious bias in the selection process.

Good health & well being

Good health and well being are often a precursor to a person being able to make the most of their talents and potential. To support our people with all aspects of their well being we set up Thrive, an internal network group to focus on well being. Thrive runs a series of events and training programmes throughout the year to raise awareness and to give people the tools and skills they need to take care of themselves and those around them.

Diversity & inclusion

Levelling up recruitment is about ensuring that careers and professions are open to people of all backgrounds through transparent, accessible and open recruitment practices.
