Vacation Scheme 2021
We’re legal experts with a difference. As well as offering a full-range of legal services to individuals and businesses, we also support people with their finances, wealth and asset management. We focus on what really matters; our clients, colleagues and communities. We work with our clients, and take the time to understand what matters most to them. We call it ‘expert hand, human touch’.
We’re more than just a law firm – we’re a group of like-minded, friendly people working together to help individuals and businesses navigate life’s ups and downs.
Over the course of two weeks, you'll spend time working across various legal teams, and gain first-hand experience of our culture, the work we do for our clients, and the opportunities we have to offer you.
We're looking for people who put clients first, are enthusiastic, committed and who show the initiative to go one step further to succeed. In return, you'll be given real responsibility that will allow you to learn on the job and develop lifelong skills. You'll gain practical experience in a supportive and friendly environment by working on important cases for clients.
It’s in our DNA to value people for who they are and what they bring. We recruit both law and non-law graduates and view social ability as important as academic achievement.
We’re proud of our values, and we’re looking for people who share them:
- To be pioneering with an imaginative outlook
- To be approachable and caring
- To be tenacious in the pursuit of our objectives
- To be efficient in the provision of our services
- To work with a foundation of integrity.
If this sounds like you, we’d love to receive your application.
