Who should apply
We seek to recruit trainees with a good degree (2.1 or above), first-class communication skills, motivation, professionalism, initiative, enthusiasm and a sense of humour.
Our vacation schemes run for 4 days each. During that time the candidates will rotate around the four main departments undertaking both written tasks and being involved in real files whilst experiencing the office environment. There will also be some group activities such as a mock trial and a client pitch. Candidates will spend time with the trainees and meet the partners at drinks and lunch respectively. This forms a key part of our selection process as we invite some candidates for interview based on which we then make training contract offers.
Trainees spend six months in four seats following induction - private client, property, litigation, commercial property, education and charity. Training is comprehensive and covers a full induction programme, participation in internal seminars and training sessions, and attendance at external courses including the Professional Skills Course.
