Solicitor Apprenticeship

Still recruiting throughout COVID‑19

Job description

Have you thought about law? Are you worried about the costs of university or put off by how competitive it is to obtain a job as a trainee solicitor? Perhaps you are simply keen to get into the world of work and start building a career. If so, Norton Rose Fulbright's Apprenticeship Programme might be for you.

We believe that everyone should have the opportunity to develop to their full potential, which is why we have launched our Apprenticeship Programme to offer a route to qualifying as a solicitor. Our apprentices will work alongside and learn from some of the brightest minds in their field, helping to solve some of our clients' most complex legal and business problems while learning the academic and practical skills needed to excel as a lawyer. They will receive a high standard of training from us while studying one day per week.

We have up to three vacancies for talented individuals to join our Apprenticeship Programme starting in September 2022. We are looking for lawyers of the future - enterprising, digitally minded individuals with the intellectual curiosity and aptitude needed to thrive in our legal business.

This Apprenticeship Programme application window is open everyone who has completed their A-Levels, or final school year leavers who are completing their A-Levels in 2022, and will take place over six years. On successful completion of the Programme, our apprentices will have an LLB degree and will qualify as solicitors. The starting salary will be £24,000, and will increase year on year commensurate with a graduate trainee solicitor salary by the fifth year. All study fees will be paid by Norton Rose Fulbright. Securing a place on this programme is subject to a successful application, telephone interview and assessment day.

To be considered we require you to be on track to achieving AAB at A-Level, however we understand that a successful team only thrives with a diverse range of skills, therefore we are also interested to hear about your strengths and motivations, as well as your extra-curricular achievements. Be assured that we run a fair and contextualised recruitment programme, therefore any mitigating circumstances will also be taken into consideration. For more information on contextualised recruitment please click here.

Our Apprenticeship Programme assessment day will take place in early July.
