As part of the solution implementation principle, we understand that not every individual has polished excellence in all areas of service. We see the potential each member brings to the firm and as such, we invest in the training and development of each member, paying specific focus on their area of improvement. What places us in a distinctive position in this regard is that we don’t limit the training opportunities to only those who are employs at VDT Attorneys.
Over the years, we have identified keen-minded and technically proficient people from previously disadvantaged communities and encouraged them to gain relevant work experience and academic education through career planning, appropriate training courses and education bursary schemes. When we picture our commitment to transformation, we see ourselves in it for the long-term and we actively aim towards diversifying our workforce. We have always employed people on the basis of ability, loyalty and subscription to company policies, regardless of sex, culture or race because we have an inherent responsibility to support the development of black legal service providers. Again, focusing on more than just the internal members of our firm, we strive to transform the entirety of the justice system in terms of access to legal assistance. We offer our expertise on a pro bono basis.
