RPC and Connectr’s partnership delivers student mentoring success

In the first of our new partner spotlights, we’re delighted to showcase the impact we’re delivering with top 50 law firm, RPC. Leveraging Connectr’s platform, RPC is providing students with learning support and mentoring to inspire and enable their first steps into a career in Law.

RPC initially partnered with Connectr in 2021 to deliver its internship programme and online virtual work experience for school-aged students.

Following our success over the last 12 months, RPC will deliver their virtual experience programme through Connectr to provide students in Years 11 to 13 with access to learning content fully branded to RPC.

The importance of role models

Students will also have access to a suite of more than 20 existing RPC employees who will provide light-touch mentor support, answer their questions, give meaningful insight around career routes within Law, and act as role models so students can envisage their future career.

The mentors will be a mixture of senior team members and recent graduates who will share their experiences of joining the firm.

Connectr’s award-winning mentoring technology enables our partners to break down the barriers candidates face to entering their chosen professions, particularly those from underrepresented groups.

By blending always-on, engaging learning content with mentoring ‘in the moment of need’, talent from all backgrounds is inspired and empowered to take their next steps and succeed.

Ensuring diverse representation

RPC shares our commitment to delivering on Diversity, Equality, and Inclusion (DE&I) objectives to enable young people, particularly those from underrepresented groups, access to a career in Law.

Diverse representation at all levels not only brings commercial innovation and a competitive edge, but also creates an inclusive environment that maximises the potential of all talent, helping them feel like they belong.

Through Connectr’s platform, RPC will provide an inclusive space for students to grow their knowledge and confidence as they embark on a career in the legal sector, instilling a sense of belonging at all touchpoints.

RPC will also utilise their Connectr platform to advertise their early talent career opportunities to their users. In an intense hiring market, RPC is able to build and nurture a future pool of talent.

We believe in the power of limitless, human connection. Connectr’s technology is developed in partnership with behavioural science and mentoring experts to deliver the best impact to our partners and users. We’re delighted to be continuing our partnership with RPC to shape the success stories of tomorrow in Law – watch this space.
