The quality of Forbes Graduate Recruitment Scheme has been recognised after being nominated in two categories at the LawCareers.Net Training & Recruitment Awards.
Forbes has been nominated for Best Trainer (Medium Regional Firm) whilst Stuart Penswick has been nominated for Best Training Principal (Small Trainee Intake).
The LCN awards set out to identify and praise those employers that do a great job in giving their trainees a flying start in the profession. These are the firms that tell the truth and play straight during the recruitment process, support and fairly assess trainees, and nurture their burgeoning careers.
Emma Fitzsimmons, Graduate Recruitment Manager comments, "These nominations come as a direct result of the comments of our current Trainee Solicitors and those who have recently qualified as Solicitors which is especially pleasing to see."
Stuart Penswick, Training Principal, comments, "I am delighted that the scheme has been recognised, we aim to provide our trainees with hands on experience in a supportive and nurturing way. Many of our Trainee Solicitors go on to have long careers at Forbes, a fact which speaks for itself."
The winners of the 14th annual awards will be announced at a glamorous event at Merchant Taylor's Hall in London on 18 May.
