Title: Reverse Mentoring Training Day
Pippa Hawkes: Through the new scheme, we've been able to bring new ideas to life and as a result, we are looking to engage with students by running a few relaxed and informal social occasions as our initial screening method, so that students can chat and get top know us in a more neutral enviroment.
Serena Tulloch, Gowling WLG: Gowling WLG have got involved in the scheme because we think it is a great initiative and it’s a way for us to engage with students and recent graduates and for us to really hear about their experiences and how we can potentially make some change within our firm as well.
Alison Sharp, Transformation West Midlands: The great thing about Transformation West Midlands is the involvement of local organisations from the West Midlands that seek to diversify their workforce and build up a really diverse and inclusive talent pipeline.
Julie Watson, University College Birmingham student: I hope to achieve a bigger understanding of how I’m linked with Shoosmiths Law firm, so I’m hoping to understand a little bit more about how they operate and how recruiters and HR departments look at graduates.
Shashi Chopra: I found the whole experience to be very valuable, both for myself and for the organisation. It has helped me gain an understanding and a better idea about the recruitment process of a graduate scheme and what recruiters look for in an applicant. At the same time, being able to participate in a project that allows me to make a difference.
