Soon to be Addleshaw Goddard trainees will visit Romania in August to take part in the firms latest corporate social responsibility (CSR) project.
Trainees due to start at the national firm in September are jetting off to Romania to help build homes with charity Habitat for Humanity.
Addleshaws CSR manager Marcus Jamieson-Pond said the project is designed to provide a good opportunity for new trainees to get to know each other before taking up their first seats with the firm in September, while also doing some good work for charity.
The trainees are all very keen to take part in the project. It will be hard work, but very rewarding. Its a good opportunity for everyone to get to know each other before September, added Jamieson-Pond.
Addleshaws has provided the funding for the flights and accommodation for the trip.
Habitat for Humanity, which aims to provide housing in impoverished areas of the world, asks for a 400 donation to the charity from each person taking part in the scheme.
Jamieson-Pond said: We realise that our new trainees may not be able to afford this so we have set up a 12-month loan that they can pay it back throughout the year.
