Foot Anstey’s summer vacation scheme offers a short period of work experience during the summer, providing a valuable insight into their business and different areas of legal expertise for those interested in applying for training contracts. To take part in the vacation scheme, submit an application by 1 April 2020. The first day will be spent finding out more about the firm followed by a period of time spent in a single office or practice area.

Our training contracts are firm wide and you will be expected to undertake at least one seat in a different office.  One of the traits of a good solicitor is the ability to cross-sell and this multi office approach allows you to build a strong foundation for when you qualify. Furthermore, we are looking to develop you into a business adviser within one of our six key sectors and it is vital you have a breadth and depth of experience in order to achieve this. Working across teams and offices will ensure you are successful.
