Trainee Associate Programme

Job Description

Salary: £50,000-£55,000

We want our Trainee Associates to develop into the Herbert Smith Freehills Partners of the future and we aim to retain as many of our Trainee Associates as possible on qualification. To ensure our Trainee Associates are given the best opportunities to develop the skills they need to become a successful lawyer, we have created the Trainee Associate Programme. Through our Business Skills Academy, Trainee Associates will be equipped with the business knowledge, skills and mindset they need to work on the biggest matters and deals with our clients across the globe.

Brilliant lawyers come from all backgrounds which is why we welcome applications from all degrees and take a roughly equal split of law and non-law students. Whatever your experience, you’ll work with some of the world’s best lawyers, on some of our biggest projects.

The route to qualifying as a solicitor in England and Wales is changing with the introduction of the SQE. This has given us the unique opportunity to partner with BPP University Law School to create the market-leading City Consortium Solicitor Training Programme. The programme will:

  • Provide you with the optimum preparation to pass the new SQE assessments
  • Equip you with the knowledge, technical and interpersonal skills you’ll need for your career at our firm

You’ll be supported throughout by BPP’s expert tutors and their state-of-the-art EdTech, including:

  • A personalised adaptive learning platform
  • Simulated SQE assessment practice with thousands of multiple-choice questions
  • A virtual law firm to enhance your digital, commercial and legal skills

We are one of the few firms who allow you to select your seat preferences ahead of each rotation, allowing you to tailor your Trainee Associate Programme as your interests develop. Understanding our clients' needs is at the heart of what we do and developing sector knowledge is crucial to this. With this in mind, you are able to select seats focused on a specific sector which will enable you to qualify with enhanced sector knowledge.

Our Trainee Associate Programme offers four six-month seats. We offer seats in dispute resolution, corporate, finance, competition, regulation and trade, intellectual property, employment, pensions and incentives and tax. Social Responsibility is central to our values which is why we also offer a seat in ESG as well as pro bono secondments to the in-house legal teams of charities and NGOs.
