We are committed to recruiting, retaining and motivating bright people who share our vision and values. We recognise the benefits of having a diverse workforce and welcome applications from the widest pool of suitably qualified candidates.
Our vacation schemes are open to penultimate year law students, final
year students of any degree discipline, graduates and those
considering a change in career.
During the vacation scheme you will have the opportunity to visit two
departments of your choice over a two-week period.
Under the guidance of your supervisor, you will have the chance to
attend court visits or client meetings as well as skills sessions run
by trainees and solicitors. In addition to this, there are many social
and sports events throughout the placement that offer a real insight
into life as a trainee solicitor. Please note that we will follow
government guidelines regarding social distancing and we will make the
decision nearer the time to run the schemes virtually if it is advised
to do so.
Vacation schemes are part of the recruitment process for trainee
solicitors so a keen interest in a career in commercial law is essential.
All participants are offered a training contract interview at the end.
Vacation schemes will take place on the following dates:
12-23 April 2021
7-18 June 2021
21 June - 2 July 2021
