The Firm's strapline "All About You" applies not just to our clients but also to our people. At Porter Dodson, everyone is encouraged to be the best they can be. With formal training that aligns with the Firm's Business Plan and a structured career development programme, emphasis is around clarity of role expectation. Support is provided to meet agreed objectives through external coaching and internal mentors. There are numerous examples of programme success with the appointment of Associates, Salaried and Equity Partners.
One of the Firm's trainees is now a Partner on the Board with others in positions as diverse as Office Head, Head of Department, and Team Leader. Our aim is to retain all of our NQs who grow quickly within a supportive environment of further mentoring and coaching.
We also support those wishing to develop their legal career via CILEx or apprenticeship qualifications, whilst providing significant investment in other development initiatives such as STEP, CIPD, AAT, etc.
The Firm's success in meeting the career aspirations of individuals is reflected in the outstanding engagement scores that we realise each year with satisfaction scorings in excess of 85%.
