Craig Sharpe, from Darlingtons Solicitors LLP, will be delivering a talk to students as part of our Careers and Employability Programme. Craig Sharpe has had a career spanning over 25 years working in law, partly as a solicitor and now a marketing specialist for law firms. This background gives Craig an unusual insight into what’s changed and what law firms now look for when recruiting, why this is and why the information is important for students.

This talk will be informal but practical and is full of real world examples.

  • The legal market – what’s changed?
  • The old fashioned lawyer
  • The new type of client
  • The proactive lawyer – more than just a good technical lawyer
  • What really goes on in modern law firms – a brief look at firms including Darlingtons, Streathers and Gannons
  • Who’s getting it right?
  • Who’s getting it wrong?
  • How you can develop the right mentality.
  • Practical takeaways

Part 2: Practical Skills for Managing Performance, Conduct and Conflict at Work (Practical workshop)

This two part course is aimed at any member of staff who has team management responsibility (unless it has been identified and agreed as part of PDD development that it would be beneficial for you to attend this course). The course gives an overview of the University’s Ordinances, Policies and Procedures and your role and responsibilities and those of HR, as well as providing an opportunity for you to explore and practice practical approaches and techniques when managing conduct, conflict and performance issues that may arise with your staff. The course will look at both informal options for resolving issues, as well as the need to escalate to formal processes using relevant University Ordinances. Delegates are required to complete Part 1 on Blackboard, before attending Part 2, a practical workshop which will give you the opportunity to develop and practice key skills in a supportive learning environment. Part 2 of the course (the practical workshop) is available in two versions, one aimed at Academic and Research staff, the other aimed at Professional services and Corporate services staff. We invite you to attend the course version that you believe most accurately describes the type of work you and your team are involved in.
