INTERVIEWWITH OUR TRAINING PRINCIPAL
ALEXANDRA WATSON Training Principal and Partner, Corporate
Selecting and training our trainees is a critical part of the Michelmores success story. We are looking for dedicated, driven individuals to develop and continue our ambitious growth plans. We are a full service firm in three strategic locations, meaning we are able to offer our trainees a varied training contract, which enables them to develop into well rounded legal and commercial advisors. Our trainees typically join us at our Exeter HQ and spend a period of their training in either Bristol or London, with the opportunity to qualify into any location. Trainees are encouraged to get involved with every aspect of life at Michelmores – from CSR initiatives and sports, to marketing, sector groups and secondments. We will support you through the training contract journey and beyond.
What stands out to me about Michelmores is the focus on client service and the opportunities available to work on high profile and interesting work, from multiple locations, within a supportive and positive environment. I moved to Michelmores as a Senior Associate from a national firm and spent the first couple of years working across Exeter and Bristol. I chose Michelmores for two reasons: the people and the strategic vision. You get the best out of people when they are passionate about what they do, and are working together towards to a shared goal. As the Firm’s Training Principal I take an active interest in the development of our trainees and meet with them regularly to discuss their seat choices and, nearer the time, qualification. It is great to be involved in helping to start and shape people’s careers, and to watch our trainees develop into stand- out solicitors.
