Who should apply?

Capsticks is committed to recruiting the best people to maintain its market leading position. We recruit around eight trainee solicitors each year and welcome applications from candidates who are either on course for or have achieved at least a 2.1 (or equivalent) in their undergraduate degree. The firm also expects candidates to be able to demonstrate they are committed to a career in health, housing and social care as well as being highly driven, but well rounded, team players, with good problem solving and communication skills.

Capsticks is committed to providing equal opportunities for all and to encouraging diversity through recruitment. Applications are welcome from all sections of the community and decisions to progress will be made with reference to entirely objective criteria only.

Capsticks offers financial support towards the Legal Practice Course by way of 50% funding and a 50% loan repayable once the training contract commences.

Capsticks' broad range of practice areas and clients enables it to provide its trainees with an opportunity to experience a wide variety of legal work. Trainees rotate every six months undertaking seats in the firm's practice areas, which include clinical law, housing, employment, real estate, commercial, litigation and regulatory. Trainees are therefore able to acquire an in-depth knowledge of both the law and the health, social care and housing sectors, in addition to developing the skills that any good lawyer needs.

Where possible, we qualify our trainees after 18 months if they have prior paralegal experience that can form part of their period of recognised training. This is a real attraction for our trainees.
