Our comprehensive approach ensures that you will develop the right skills through a combination of in-office partner and associate mentoring, project work, formal training sessions and regular feedback.  We also support flexible working for our trainees through our Matheson Hybrid Working Policy.  In addition, our Impactful Business Programme will offer you a range of opportunities to get involved and volunteer in an area that's important to your own personal purpose.  We invest in developing our people, seek to give back to society and are strong advocates for our economy. Our team draws on broad industry experience and networks to create meaningful outcomes for our clients, our colleagues and our society.
