Job Description

Our Trainee Program is on two-year fixed term contract and is designed, structured and developed to give you an experience which is practical and enjoyable whilst authentically reflecting the daily work of our lawyers. Working alongside lawyers across levels on real client projects, you’ll enjoy structured work-based learning, skills training and presentations.

We carefully and thoughtfully plan our trainee program to offer a combination of a variety of induction sessions, skills and information workshops together with networking opportunities and social events.

• getting involved in a range of additional activities
• working with, and learning from, solicitors who are leaders in their respective fields
• a non-hierarchical structure with the emphasis on approachability and a collegiate working culture

And to make sure that you meet our core capabilities and perform well throughout your traineeship, we will also get feedback from supervisor regularly. Performance is assessed at the conclusion of the program with offers then made for permanent roles.
