This year’s trainee Marcus Downie is settling in to his new position in our Residential Conveyancing Department. During his two year traineeship he will gain an understanding of client’s needs and have the opportunity of working in different areas of law including commercial property, private client and civil litigation.
In the summer of 2013 Marcus began working with us initially helping with the administrative tasks relating to the merger with Donaldson Alexander Russell and Haddow. He then returned the following summers to assist with legal work in various departments before commencing his traineeship in 2016.
As a Mitchells Roberton trainee Marcus will learn how to deal with people who may be going through a stressful situation and need guidance and support. He will also gain an understanding of how to work as a team member and communicate effectively with colleagues; know when to ask advice from someone more experienced; and understand the importance of building up a network of contacts.
Mark McGorm, our Partnership Director said: “We are committed to investing in our people and believe in helping our staff succeed”.
