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 2019. 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.
Training contract programme
Trainees undertake six seats of four months across two years. Upon starting, the firm offers a detailed induction and training programme over the two years, and assigns trainees a buddy from the existing trainee population before they join. Foot Anstey put an emphasis on supported personal and professional development throughout the training contract, with client secondments also available. Trainees are asked to play a key role in CSR and charitable activities – simultaneously encouraging them to get involved in the firm's social calendar.
