Benchers and Hall members are warmly invited to join the Talent Retention Steering Group on Wednesday 8 December for their Resources Seminar.

The Seminar will explore in more detail some of the Tips for Movers and Returners at the Bar that can be found on our website here.

The Talent Retention Scheme
The purpose of the Talent Retention Scheme is to provide support to Middle Temple barristers who are either returning from time out of practice (a “returner”) or switching practice areas (a “mover”).

The scheme is open to men and women, and all barristers, employed and self-employed.
Time out of practice may be for any reason including maternity leave, paternity leave, adoption leave, caring responsibilities, health reasons, further study, time-out or to pursue other ventures. Movers could be changing discipline because they are excited about a new challenge or because their practice is not compatible with family or caring responsibilities, other commitments, or has become difficult to sustain for various reasons. For example, criminal barristers moving to family or regulatory work; self-employed barristers becoming employed, or vice versa.

Supporting returners and movers is a concrete way of encouraging diversity, equality and inclusion. Returners and movers offer cognitive diversity and will bring different approaches, skills and experience to enrich the offer of the organisation that takes them on. Also, if chambers and employers compete to offer longevity of careers and, in particular, a horizon that goes beyond having children, health, study or other breaks, this will help recruit the best young barristers from the outset.

For non-members, you will need to book via the Treasury Office (Monday - Friday, 10:00 - 16:00). Please call: 020 7427 4800.
