Kennedys Law boosts recruitment drives and new starter engagement
Global law firm Kennedys uses StoryTagger in their early careers and apprenticeship team to attract and progress diverse early careers talent.
As well as regular employee feedback on their experiences of Kennedys, the team also piggy-back on public campaigns to amplify their employer brand presence such as National Apprenticeship Week. This year they crowdsourced video stories from their 2nd year paralegals who were about to transition onto the next-stage Solicitor Apprentice programme.
For the Apprenticeship story Kennedys covered themes such as:
- Best part of being an apprentice at Kennedys
- Experience of the industry
- Skills learned
- Future goals
Having launched a Virtual Work Experience Programme during the pandemic, the early careers team have also captured advocacy stories to help people take their first step in law.
We think StoryTagger is fantastic. Having used it to support our early careers and apprentices, it’s so user friendly and a great way to show what it’s like to work and progress at Kennedys
