Job description

The lawyers of our future start here. This is your chance to turn opportunities into big deals as a Trainee. You’ll transform challenges into solutions, meet with clients and get your hands on varied global projects. The best way to learn is to do and we won’t hold you back.

Who are we without you? You’re the specialists and we’ll give you the learning tools and guidance to help you progress to the next stage. Alongside your formal induction and year-round training, you’ll receive ongoing support from your supervisor, trainee representatives, our Human Resources and Legal Project Management departments. Your supervisor isn’t someone you meet with sporadically though, they’ll be a constant, helping you define your career and working with you to get it right. You’re more than a trainee and we always think of the bigger picture when it comes to your career.
