Offering you the support you need to perform well in your job now and in the future
We are dedicated to supporting you at every level and making sure that you progress throughout your career. To achieve this goal, we have developed a Global Academy, which offers education, training and people-development activities across our global network and within our local offices.
The Academy provides innovative, targeted, cutting-edge learning and development initiatives to ensure that all of our people realise their full potential.
Global business skills training
We offer a Global Managerial Training Programme to all our support staff who manage or supervise others, whether they work in the Americas, Asia, Continental Europe or London.
This programme helps you gain expertise in your new position more quickly by dynamically linking education and training to your immediate on the job needs and your long-term career development.
Our courses give you the skills you need, when you need them, as you progress in your career. They range from personal business skills such as effective communication and time and work management to an understanding of your own leadership style and how you can help team members improve their performance and development.
At senior management level we provide Masterclasses in leadership skills for those who take a strategic role in the firm, to help them deal with the intricate challenges they face.
Clifford Chance helps you identify ways in which you can contribute to excellence in client service and offers tailored courses on "client focus" skills.
All our training is highly interactive and practical, focusing on you and your daily work. It also provides an excellent opportunity for you to network with your peers from other offices and practice areas in your region and to share ideas and best practice.
We also have a wide variety of e-learning courses to help you implement your newly acquired skills and fit your learning around your daily work.
In addition to our extensive in-house business skills programme we encourage our staff to attend external courses - for example in accountancy or technology - so that you can continue to develop your specific areas of expertise.
Investment in technology and support systems
No matter which of our offices you work in, our people are networked into a sophisticated infrastructure designed to help us operate efficiently as one firm.
We are continually reviewing the technology we use as a business, to make our systems smarter, faster and more efficient. And refining our support functions so that - as a business - we can offer you what you need to work effectively.
