Trainee Solicitor Contracts
We are looking to recruit high calibre and varied candidates for our exciting trainee scheme. Our trainees are fully integrated into the firm from day one. We believe in giving trainees responsibility which includes early client involvement and playing an active part in the progression of matters. They receive excellent training supervised by expert solicitors and partners. Our trainees quickly build up their confidence and experience so that by the end of their training they are capable of acting on their own matters.
We are currently seeking to recruit two trainees for March 2020 and two trainees for September 2020.
Trainees spend time in three or four of the following departments:- Commercial Property, Company Commercial, Dispute Resolution, Employment, Residential Property or Private Client. Please note that we are not offering a seat in Family in this intake.
We try to accommodate trainees with their preferences because we recognise that for some it can be difficult to know before commencing a training contract what areas of law will be most rewarding in practice.
Whenever possible the firm seeks to retain trainees at the end of their contract. For this reason preference is given to locally based candidates or ones with a connection with the local areas we cover. We prefer a 2.1 degree but will consider other candidates who have proven skills with extenuating circumstances as to their degree result.
Most importantly we look for individuals who fit in with our values. First class customer service is the key to our success. Candidates will need to be sociable, articulate, ambitious and able to work under pressure.
Applications should be made by way of a short letter and CV. Please send to Anne Walsh, HR Manager by post at ‘Building 9, Riverside Way, Watchmoor Park, Camberley, Surrey, GU15 3YL’ or by e mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our trainee recruitment policy begins with an initial online aptitude test for shortlisted candidates. This is followed by a presentation and psychometric test before a final interview.
Applications for the positions will open 1st September 2018 and close on 31st January 2019.
