Can I choose which departments I work in?

We will always try to match departments to your own particular areas of interest, but this is not always possible. Choices are made depending on your own interests and which departments can accommodate a trainee at a particular time.

Am I guaranteed a job at the end of the programme?

Although we cannot guarantee a job at the end of the programme, in recent years our retention rate has been very high. We invest heavily in your training, so it is in our interest to offer you permanent employment.

How much training and coaching can I expect?

A lot. You will work alongside a Partner in each seat, learning directly from them and helping them with their caseloads. You will also have access to our training partner and human resources manager, who will be on-hand to provide advice and support.

Will I get feedback on why my application has not gone forward?

Unfortunately we are unable to give detailed feedback at any stage in the application process to those who have not been successful. This is due to the sheer number of applications we handle.

Will I know which department I will be going into first before I start?

Yes. We will contact you before you start to advise you of which department you will join first and which of the Partners you will be sitting with.

Will there be opportunities to socialise with the rest of the firm?

We are an extremely sociable and friendly firm, and regularly organise get-togethers after working hours.
