Training Contract

Job Description

Salary: Competitive

A full-service law firm with a diverse client base, Winckworth Sherwood prides itself on providing market-leading advice across a broad range of sectors and markets. Delivering a first class service is key to everything we do.

Our clients range from some of the UK’s largest businesses and institutions, housebuilders and developers through to investors, professional partnerships, family offices, not for profit organisations and private individuals – all of which benefit from the flexible, practical approach of our lawyers.

Wouldn’t you prefer to train at a firm where you’re valued as an individual, instead of another face in a large intake of trainees?

At Winckworth Sherwood we recruit just eight trainee solicitors each year. We keep that number deliberately low to maximise the staff/trainee ratio and give you the best possible preparation for your future career. A career we sincerely hope will be with us.

As a trainee you will rotate through four departments in six month placements or ‘seats’. This will give you a solid grounding in various fields of law, helping you to identify the areas that interest you most.

You’re here to make a name for yourself. Not the tea. From your first seat, you will be entrusted with real responsibility, and deal directly with clients. You may even manage your own files subject to suitable supervision. That’s not to say you’ll be handed more than you’re equipped to deal with. You will usually sit with a partner or senior solicitor and have access to the whole department’s expertise and support.

You will be given a bespoke training diary, which is reviewed regularly and there is a twice-yearly appraisal where your performance will be reviewed.

This is more than just legal training. Our well-established training programme means that on top of legal training you’ll get business skills training, including presentation skills, project management, networking and client development.
