Introducing Our New ‘Period of Recognised Training’ Candidates

1st December 2014

We were delighted this month to announce the successful candidates in our ‘Period of Recognised Training’ (PORT) – previously known as Training Contracts. Big congratulations to Nikki, Jo, Ajith and James!

We caught up with Marketa, our Learning and Development Specialist, to talk us through the selection process.

I was absolutely overwhelmed with the outstanding candidates across the board who applied this year. We chose four amazing talents, but I was proud of everyone that applied and if they were unsuccessful on this occasion, I would definitely recommend reapplying as assessments are held twice a year.

The process was completely revamped this year and involved a new two-day assessment centre. Over these two days, the candidates are measured against the Fletchers values (Trust, Innovation, Development and Performance) and participate in a mixture of group, individual, written and interview based tasks.

I am really looking forward to working alongside the candidates and to see them grow into successful and reputable solicitors in their respective fields.

Each day this week, we will introduce each of the candidates, who talk about their time at Fletchers so far and what this opportunity means to them.
