Job description

A training contract at Ashurst will move your mind beyond technical knowledge of the law. Ultimately, we want to help you become a thought leader with a reputation for clear, perceptive and influential advice – a professional in whom governments and leading businesses the world over can place their trust. This isn’t an easy route to take.

You’ll need to become a shrewd negotiator, have an ability to read both balance sheets and behaviours, and become a commercial strategist with a deep understanding of specific industries. Our training contract will start you on that road. We will plan closely with you four seats of six months each, that will broaden your world view and hone your talents.

At least one seat will be in a finance practice and we will also encourage you to join an overseas office or go on secondment to one of our most valued clients.

Alongside all the hard work, we also have fun. We’re incredibly proud of our culture: we thrive when we’re collaborating; we care about our standards of client service; we’re willing to explore ideas and be accountable for their success; and as people, we’re good company. We will expect all of that from you, too.

Person requirements

We expect a lot of ourselves – and so, as you would expect, you will need to be comfortable with challenges and pressure. You should also be able to express yourself confidently on paper and out loud, whether that’s among your team or in a client’s boardroom.

Qualifications and experience requirements

  • 340 (or equivalent) UCAS points and 2:1 degree

Funding for training

GDL and LPC sponsorship of £8,000 (for study in London) and £7,000 (ouside of London)

Salary

£42,000
