Carey Olsen accredited Platinum Employer Partner by STEP

Following a rigorous application and interview process, the Carey Olsen Channel Islands Trusts & Private Wealth practice has been accredited as a Platinum Employer Partner by The Society of Trust and Estate Practitioners (STEP).

The Employer Training Scheme (ETS) was launched by STEP last year and has been designed to help employers plan and deliver the best possible training experience for their STEP students based on best practice, education and professional support.  Carey Olsen was invited to participate in the pilot scheme, which was then rolled out to the trusts industry in April. The accreditation achieved is the highest grading that can be awarded under the scheme and Carey Olsen is the only Channel Islands' law firm to be accredited Platinum Partner status.

Carey Olsen STEP members Nina Silva and Victoria Grogan took part in the interview process and worked together with Laila Arstall and Gillian Gorvel on Carey Olsen's successful submission.

Jenni Hutchinson, Head of Employer Partnerships at STEP was in Guernsey to meet with Russell Clark, who heads up the Carey Olsen Trusts team in Guernsey.

Russell said "Taking part in this STEP initiative has been a very worthwhile exercise.  We are always keen to enhance our  training programmes and invest in the development of our staff and are delighted  we achieved the  highest accreditation available."
