To apply for a training contract with us you need to complete an online application form using our online application system. The deadline for submissions for a 2019 training contract is 30 June 2017. The application process for 2019 training contracts will be open from 01 December 2016.
We receive over 100 training contract applications per year so your application needs to stand out. Candidates who demonstrate exceptional personal achievement and have a good awareness of the firm are more likely to succeed. We are looking for well-rounded candidates who have the essential skills needed to become a good lawyer.
A short-list of around 30 candidates will be invited to attend an interview during July 2017 with the Training Partner. Prior to the interview, candidates may be asked to submit a 400 word essay on a chosen subject.
Following the interview process, a final short-list of up to 15 candidates will be invited to attend our assessment day which will take place at the end of July or early August 2017. The assessment day will include individual and group exercises and will also provide an opportunity to meet current trainees and other members of the firm.
At no stage throughout the process do we ask candidates to take part in any psychometric tests.
If you have any questions in relation to the training contract application process then please contact Kate Ellis, HR Manager.
