Goughs Solicitors has an open policy when it comes to training and development. We encourage our employees to progress via various means including formal training both on and off site and/or leadership development/coaching and mentoring.

We offer a discretionary career structure and appraisal scheme to all our qualified and non-qualified fee earners on an annual basis. These meetings allow for discussion around each individual’s personal and professional development that is based not just on qualifications but their level of experience, management responsibilities and work ethic in-line with our values.

Our star performers have the opportunity for fast track career development with the support of the HR team and partners of the firm. 

We also annually hold performance and development reviews with our support staff. These meetings allow the employees to reflect on their performance over the past year and set objectives for the coming year. As with our fee earners, these meetings centre on our values.
