Ashurst is a special firm, emerging as one of a key group of premier law firms operating globally.
The behaviours and competencies that make our lawyers the very best are the same qualities we look for throughout the recruitment process. Our trainees are rewarded by an atmosphere that is supportive, nurturing and enjoyable.
"You'll enjoy second-to-none training & supportive colleagues"
Ours is a high pressure, demanding environment. We are looking for people who will thrive in these surroundings and have the drive to succeed. There will be late nights where you'll be facing tight deadlines and you will need to be totally committed to delivering for your clients, and for the firm as a whole. Commercial awareness is essential, as is a strong analytical mind-set, and you will need to offer a range of approaches to problem-solving.
You must also have the confidence to express yourself on paper, within teams, and to a boardroom of your peers. We take academic achievement seriously, which is why you will need to be on track for a strong 2:1 (or equivalent) in your undergraduate degree and have attained at least an AAB or equivalent at A level.
Ashurst will support you in the final classroom hurdles as we sponsor the Graduate Diploma in Law (where applicable) and the Legal Practice Course before you join. Once you're here, you'll enjoy second-to-none training, supportive colleagues, as well as the encouragement to spread your wings and work in our overseas offices.
You will need:
"The firm's mission is to realise the full potential of all our people"
- Analytical Ability
- Motivation, Determination and Drive
- Commercial Instinct
- Team and Interpersonal Skills
- Communication Skills
The firm's mission is to realise the full potential of all our people. We provide strong support so that they have the knowledge, skills, expertise and motivation to develop their careers at the firm and perform their work to the highest possible standards. Lawyers attend many of our key development centres alongside colleagues from our global offices, to encourage strong working relationships across borders.
