We provide the right level of support and challenge for our people to develop to their true potential.

Addleshaw Goddard has a clear structure for progression in all roles, with guidance on the behaviours and skills required at different levels. Like most firms, we have formal annual and mid-year appraisals and ongoing, informal progress chats.

People are encouraged to seek feedback and comments from peers on their development in the spirit of openness that is a key part of the firm's values. They work with their line manager to agree areas where they can progress and also identify training needs.

AG's development approach is to give access to learning opportunities at the right time for each individual. A regular programme of core technical and non-technical skills training is offered by the learning and development team and our other experts, including professional support lawyers.

This is strengthened by a number of career development exercises, delivered at certain stages of the learner's journey. Our people also have access to one-to-one coaching to support them throughout their career.

We keep staff stimulated and stretched by their jobs. This comes from our interesting, challenging client briefs, our approach to collaborating across teams and firms and secondment and training opportunities with clients.
