Navigating the New Normal as a Trainee


26/11/2020 - 2 to 3 pm


In the third webinar in our series, ‘The Future of the Office’, we look at how junior members of law firms are being supported in the ‘new normal’. How are firms looking after them and how is recruitment changing?

Join us to hear from our two panelists:

Laura Yeates is the Head of Graduate Recruitment at Clifford Chance and Chair of the Sustainable Recruitment Alliance: a new initiative encouraging the graduate recruitment industry to reduce its carbon footprint.
Imogen Green is a fourth seat trainee at Slaughter and May, currently on client secondment at Burberry. She also sits on the Trainee Solicitor Committee.

Key themes include:

What measures have firms implemented to support trainees during the pandemic?
Is ‘learning by osmosis’ a thing of the past in the new age of Zoom calls and working from home?
How might the pandemic democratise the recruitment process?
What might the future of the office look like?
What are the implications for sustainability and what is sustainable recruitment? How can applicants best stand out and learn about firms during the pandemic?

As always there will be plenty of time for discussions and questions so do book your place today (as spaces are limited) by registering here.
