We are Dentons. The world’s largest law firm. With more than 12,500 people in 80+ countries around the world, we have unique breadth, depth and diversity. Alongside our award winning global work, we are committed to a culture of innovation, giving back and inclusion.
Dentons is designed to be different. The landscape we work in is changing at an accelerating pace. We embrace this change, and are looking for trainees and apprentices to join us in redefining what is possible and in shaping the future of law.
Your career at Dentons can shape up to be something extraordinary. It’s a place for those who are driven to challenge. To question. To break tradition. To put your career firmly into fast-forward. This could be the start of something big.
Main areas of work
Trainees and apprentices are able to choose from a wealth of seats to work with experts across our practice areas: banking and finance, competition, corporate, dispute resolution, ETI (energy, transport and infrastructure), PRM (people, reward and mobility), real estate, tax and TMT (technology, media and telecommunications).
Work is also about more than just work here. It's about the environment too, and the feeling you get from your team, office and beyond. Our teams are focused on inclusion, giving back, and on looking forward with innovation.
Vacation scheme 2024
Deciding where to start your career is a big decision. Balance real work with training and networking on our schemes to see what your career at Dentons could look like. Our two week scheme will give you, and us, an insight into whether we’re a good match.
In each week of the scheme you will experience a different practice area, working closely with a supervisor and buddy.
By attending our Vacation Scheme, you'll automatically be assessed for our Training Contract. This could be the start of something much bigger.
Our schemes run in Spring (London only) and Summer (London, Milton Keynes and Scotland).
The deadline to apply is 2 January 2024.
What we are looking for
There is no such thing as a ‘typical’ trainee or apprentice at Dentons and that’s the way we like it. Our expertise within the Firm is as diverse as the needs of our global clients. What we have in common is the ability to contribute to our growing success.
We generally look for a strong academic performance, but consider every application we receive in context and holistically. If you feel you can submit a strong application even if you do not meet these grades, we encourage you to apply.
We also encourage you to include mitigating circumstances if relevant.
We have also implemented the Rare Recruitment Contextual Recruitment System, to give us additional context to every candidate’s application.
