Arthur Cox trainees work hard and play hard! There are plenty of events held throughout the year, ranging from tables quizzes and poker tournaments to lunchtime concerts at the National Concert Hall and summer barbecues. Other seasonal lunchtime and evening activities include yoga, mindfulness sessions and art classes.
One of the biggest events in the trainee calendar is the ‘weekend away’ where all the trainees from the Dublin and Belfast offices get the opportunity to socialise together. The location is top secret right up to the point where you arrive at the gates of the venue which adds much suspense to the trip.
Cycle-to-work competitions are also put in place for those with plenty of energy in the morning! The firm provides a regular free bike tune-up service on site as well as showers and lockers. Our new office (2017) will have state-of-the-art gym facilities.
Golfing and sailing lessons are frequently organised by the firm as post-work activities throughout the year.
Our soccer team has won the Solicitor’s League for the last three years running and our tag rugby team has also enjoyed many successes over the years.
The Annual Triathlon
- Each summer the highly-contested triathlon takes place. You can enter individually or, if you want, you can do one leg of the three, as part of a team.
- The triathlon is not just a teamwork building exercise; it also raises funds for our selected charities and our Zambian charity project.
- The triathlon is an opportunity for everyone to unwind and socialise in a casual setting outside the office.
