Graduate Training - Wynn Williams

Graduate Training

When you join us as a graduate or clerk you will have already spent several years preparing for your career. You will require more training, of course, but we believe it is time for you to start using what you know.

From the start of your first day we will expect you to play an important part in the work of the team you join. This doesn't mean you are abandoned or unsupported; neither does it mean that you only do basic jobs.
