Walkers welcomed more than 70 students, parents and faculty members from high schools and tertiary institutions in the Cayman Islands to its annual career fair in George Town in November.

Members of the Walkers trainee committee and partners presented a range of legal and non-legal career options available at the firm as well as internships and legal scholarship opportunities.

Students also met with Walkers staff from IT, marketing, human resources, project management, professional support and facility services as well as team members from the legal and professional services groups.

Walkers associate Martin Davies speaks at the firm’s career fair.

Students from Clifton Hunter High School, Triple C School, Grace Christian Academy, Cayman Academy, John Gray High School, University College of the Cayman Islands and the Truman Bodden Law School attended the event.

Walkers started its legal training programme in 1983 and has since added development programmes for Caymanians such as the Junior Legal Secretary Training Programme and the Fiduciary Services Development Programme. Walkers also participates in the different mentoring programmes in Cayman and offers students a range of work experience and internship placements each year.

More information on Walkers’ training programmes is available on the firm’s website walkersglobal.com.
