With the Assessment Centre’s completed; this May has been quite a busy month for the HR and Recruitment team, however the rest of the office have had a great month with some interesting and unique events going on both in Geldards itself and as part of the wider community!
We put on some great events this month! To start the month off we hosted a Charity Tax & Gift Aid Seminar in the Cardiff offices with a great attendee list. We also had a Spring Employment Seminar this month all about Vicarious Liability and the newest updates in Employment Law.
Assessment Centres were the hot topic in our offices this month, with so many fantastic candidates it’s been a privilege to hold the assessment centres and to get to know the applicants better.
Junior Lawyer of the Year
This month started with a celebration, Natalie Hayden-Yeung an Associate Solicitor in the Family team was awarded the Junior Lawyer of the Year award at this years’ Derby and District Law Society Annual Awards!
With a great news article on our site it states that “Natalie’s submission for the award was based on a variety of factors, including legal, anthropological and business development” which is great to see.
With Mental Health week this month we had a very educational time across all offices with a guest speaker that you may have seen on our Instagram. With daily emails within the firm about different ways that we can look after our mental health alongside the guest speaker we had the great opportunity to learn all about what we can do and how we can help.
As always there was something sporty going on in the office with a great touch rugby team getting together to start the season off in style! With a great team it won’t be long before they start climbing the tournament board.
Community Foundation in Wales
We had the opportunity to host a bring and share lunch for the office in Cardiff this month with some tasty lunch ideas and very well baked cakes and desserts to raise money for a great cause – what more can you ask for from a Friday afternoon?
Keep an eye on our social media for our events next month as we look forward to everything else that will be happening throughout the Company!
