For more experienced colleagues at Plexus, we offer a number of development opportunities which aim to place our most talented colleagues into senior roles which include Partner, Associate and Management roles within the firm.
Our pathways and processes aim to develop focused colleagues who excel at the firm and who are continually aware of market conditions, the competition and understand how to use their knowledge, excellence and expertise to maximise success, both internally and externally.
The skills and characteristics we look for include advanced technical expertise, people management, business development, financial and business acumen and client relationship management.
“I’ve been able to move away from a fee earning role and into a more strategic, technical role that opportunity would probably not have been available at a less diverse firm. I feel supported by my managers, and am regularly able to give and share my views, indeed this is very much encouraged. I always feel like my voice matters, and that I am listened to.”
Alyce Olley, Associate
“I never thought when I started at Plexus in 2010 that I would be where I am today, doing a completely different role. I’ve been encouraged and supported by Plexus along the way and they have given me the opportunity to show them what I can do, given the chance. I have never looked back, I only look forward to the new challenges!”
Catherine Newman, Head of Facilities
“I have always been given a great deal of responsibility throughout my career at Plexus. This has allowed me to take a hands-on approach with work and clients, to get involved with new contracts and to develop my skills. This means that I have been able to develop my career quickly and become a strong member of my team with a varied mix of work.”
Alastair Dyson, Associate
“I became an Associate Partner in 2016, and a Partner in 2018. I now specialise in handling subrogated recovery claims, advising clients and supervising a large team in respect of the full breadth of insured perils, including impact, fire, escape of water, flood, accidental damage, escape of oil and subsidence damage. I additionally handle high value defendant and indemnity claims. I work closely with clients, providing training and advice as required.”
Sarah Cartwright, Partner
