Norton Rose hunts for Indian trainees" />Norton Rose has opened its trainee programme to newly qualified Indian lawyers and is recruiting directly from India.
The firm’s graduate recruitment partner Sam Eastwood (pictured) said Norton Rose had gone directly to several Indian colleges to recruit between three and five trainees for the 2010 intake.
“Foreign lawyers can be very dynamic when put against UK students only studying law because their fathers told them to, and they also know the meaning of hard work,” said Eastwood. “So we’re trying to be more proactive by engaging with colleges and opening up trainee recruitment to Indian-qualified lawyers.”
Eastwood added that, while it was not necessary to put Indian lawyers through a trainee scheme, as they can sit the qualification transfer exam, the firm wanted to provide them with the same opportunities as English-qualified lawyers.
The move follows that of global law firms into the Indian recruitment market.
