Training contract programme
Modest numbers – We recruit to retain: for 2020, we're taking on up to 14 trainees which means we'll have the resources and time to give you as much support as you need.
Immediate responsibilities – Because of our small intake, there's a lot of interesting work to go around and you will be given challenges from the start.
Choices – You will work four seats and will be able to select preferences from many different areas of law.
A mentor – Your mentor (a Hill Dickinson solicitor) will be on hand throughout your time with us to offer advice, guidance and support.
Office sharing – You will share an office with a partner, who will help you develop your legal knowledge and be there to support you.
A social scene – Our trainees work really hard and as you'd expect, it's not all fun and games. But when they do let their hair down, they get together and do it properly! You're welcome to get involved in the firm's staff and family and sustainability programmes.
