Best in Law 2014 Highlights S&C's U.K. Trainee ProgrammeOctober 6, 2014
On October 6, LawCareers.Net published its Best in Law 2014 issue, which highlights S&C's U.K. Trainee Programme and Mr. Perry's recent award for “Best Training Principal” in May 2014. Mr. Perry, Kirsten Davies (the London office trainee solicitor recruitment manager) and the first group of U.K. trainee solicitors (Anna Hagan, Sean Ruscitto, Victor Siek and Michelle Vickers) were interviewed about the trainee programme. Ben spoke, among other things, about the strategy behind the launch of the programme, the S&C team working to build it and the recruiting approach as the programme grows.
The article also reported on the experiences of Anna, Sean, Victor and Michelle, including their attraction to the programme and the Firm, the relationships they have developed with their colleagues and the work they have accomplished as trainees, as well as the significant work put in by a large number of partners, associates and staff members in the London office in helping develop the trainee programme over the last four years.
On October 1, S&C's trainee programme was recognized in The Lex100 Survey, which asks trainee solicitors from 230 firms in the United Kingdom to rate their firm in multiple categories. S&C was a Lex100 winner in four categories: quality of work, overall job satisfaction, living up to expectations and social life.
