  • Good to see some good news for a change but Irwin Mitchell isn't the only firm increasing its intake, some firms even have more spaces than trainees.

  • Makes sense - fill the firm with cheap labour now, and have a full complement of NQ-2 year qualifieds when the market picks up and the volume of work returns.

  • Which firms are you speaking about Baby Farks?

  • They're also bucking the trend by hiring a huge amount of paralegals too.

  • TC, I can't remember the exact firms but happened to be reading an article saying that a few firms had more vacancies than trainees. One of them may have been Tim Henman's dad's firm but can't be completely sure.

  • I've just started at IM as a temporary paralegal on a 12 week contract and we're SO busy, they've had to take more staff on since my joing a month ago!
    Hoping that a TC might be a possibility for later on.....

  • Is IM a good firm? I've heard conflicting stories about them

  • If you do enough homework and dig deep enough, you'll hear conflicting stories aboutevery firm under the sun. There is no one set of criteria that determines 'A Good Firm'.

  • "Good firm" is so subjective. I'm sure that IM recruits that have been paralegals for small local firms think that they're on the yellow brick road if there's an IT system and aircon yet I suspect that those with a city background wouldn't wipe their feet on the carpet.
