World-class career and development programme
Hamilton’s vision is to be the most respected and attractive law firm and employer in Sweden. The company’s career and development programme – Hamilton Excellence – is designed to develop the firm’s associates into top legal talent. It covers processes and tools, step-by-step, all the way from recruitment through to partner examinations. Hamilton Excellence gives our employees transparent and clear expectations as to their professional development, a fantastic career platform and superb conditions for development at the firm. Hamilton Excellence not only ensures that the firm has a continuous growth of the best legal talent available on the market, it secures that our employees, irrespective of future career choices, are highly attractive in the legal industry.
Hamilton Excellence encompasses formal training (Hamilton Boot Camp and Hamilton Academy) and a framework of expectations (Hamilton Career). Clear expectations are pivotal for quality development in our daily work. Our ultimate goal is to be each other’s role models, every day and in all regards – we take joint responsibility for ensuring the sustainable and long-term development of our firm. In addition to the feedback received from our partners and senior associates in the daily work, we encourage our employees to give each other continuous support in whichever task at hand, which enables us to create a team with a genuine team spirit.
Hamilton Career is the framework of expectations that forms the basis of Hamilton Excellence. There are specific targets and expectations for development, performance and skills at each associate level. Our associates are assessed each year based on these targets and expectations, with particular focus on future development.
