Employee testimonials – Recruitment process & joining Rayden Solicitors

The recruitment process at Rayden Solicitors was exceptionally supportive and professional.

When I applied for a Paralegal position through the Rayden Career page, I noticed how informative and efficient the process was from the very beginning.

From Day 1 I was warmly welcomed, helped with all the set up and was assigned a buddy who was by my side to help with any questions I had.

Emily Sabatino, Paralegal – Read Emily’s full account here.

The recruitment process was smooth, and every step was designed to ensure that the firm and I were a good fit for each other. I received full information about the role as a member of the team and as a wider ambassador of the firm. The process was well organised and I was kept up to date as to what would happen next.

On starting at Rayden Solicitors I immediately felt welcomed by the team. There was plenty of support available for training and learning the new systems, meaning it was easy to settle in quickly. I had regular catch-ups scheduled with my line manager and other members of the team which really helped me feel established in the new role.

Rebekah Norman, Solicitor

The recruitment process with Rayden’s was very positive, I met or communicated with a number of different partners and other members of the team.

This was very reassuring and I felt I understood the firm and the role for which I was recruited.
