About Clyde & Co LLP
We're home to some 5,500 people across more than 60 offices – that includes 2,400 lawyers. All of us share the same commitment to delivering exceptional client service. But we’re also individuals. People from different backgrounds, with different interests and different perspectives. Which we think makes Clyde & Co a very inspiring place to work.
What we're looking for
The firm is looking for candidates who combine an excellent academic track record with strong commercial acumen and a practical approach to problem-solving. We therefore look for those with ambition, independent thinking, curiosity and commitment, honed with the ability Trainees need to communicate effectively and build relationships with both clients and colleagues.
Development and career progression opportunities
You will gain early responsibility with opportunities to develop your skills through close personal supervision and a wide range of training courses. You will undertake four six-month seats, which will cover both contentious and transactional work. You may choose to be seconded to one of our international offices, or have the opportunity to undertake a client secondment. The combination of a wide variety of practice areas, local offices, international and client opportunities means you’ll have the chance to have a broad range of exposure to our whole network.
We'll make sure you have plenty of support before your training begins – you can look forward to one-to-one sessions with our graduate team covering things like your career preferences; workshops, presentations and training sessions at our offices; an LPC mentoring programme and social events.
The Professional Skills Course (PSC) will form the foundation of your professional development as you move forward with your career. It’s supported by various legal, technical and business-focused sessions. In addition to this, you’ll have access to MyDevelopment – an online training resource to support you with your personal and professional development. We also have an extensive training library which will help you to succeed within your role, fulfil your potential and progress your career.
Whether you join us as a student or as a fully-fledged trainee, you’ll get all the legal training you need to learn quickly and develop even faster. After all, you’re the future of the firm.
We'll also help you to develop the softer skills that will give you a sharp commercial edge.
