We are looking for two new trainee solicitors to start training contracts with us from 01 September 2019. We welcome applications from both a law and non-law background but you must have completed and passed your Legal Practice Course before the start date.

When you qualify we hope you will stay with us and we will do our best to place you in the area of law that suits you most.

About us
We are a public sector shared legal service. We have a wealth of experience gained through many years of advising local government, public bodies and charitable institutions. We offer our clients tried and tested expertise in a wide range of disciplines and our public service ethos sets us apart from private legal practices. We are run in a rigorously commercial manner, working hard to offer excellent value for money whilst at the same time delivering a high quality, efficient legal service to our clients.

What do we look for in our trainees?
It is essential that you have:
• either a Law degree or a non-law degree plus the CPE/GDL
(We would like you to have at least a 2:1 degree but we will nevertheless consider your application if you have achieved or are on course to achieve a commendation, merit or distinction in the CPE/GDL/LPC)
• and will have completed and passed your Legal Practice Course by commencement of the training contract

You will be part of a large supportive team and have access to an on-site training center with access to a comprehensively stocked library and on-line facilities.
Conditions of service include flexible working hours and membership of the Local Government pension scheme.
