Pitmans Law: the home of talent. Do you have what it takes to join us as a trainee?
The application window is now closed. It will re-open in 2018 for training contracts commencing in September 2020.
Trainees are the future of our firm and we’re looking for confident, passionate, outgoing, commercially minded applicants who share our values and commitment to delivering outstanding outcomes for our clients.
Candidates typically have a strong and consistent record of academic achievement – a 2.1 or better at degree level and a commendation on the LPC, if completed.We are also interested to hear from candidates with wider experience or something extra to offer.
Our two-year, hands-on trainee programme offers broad experience and six-month seats in at least three of our key departments across our Reading and London offices (and occasionally in Southampton).
The work is challenging but stimulating – trainees are given a high level of responsibility and frequent client contact in a supportive environment with an assigned supervising partner. We also run a mentoring scheme, pairing trainees with newly qualified Pitmans-trained solicitors to share experience and advice.
The starting salary for training contracts commencing in September 2020 is likely to be £26,500. We do not fund the GDL or LPC.
To give you an insight into life as a Pitmans trainee, we asked trainees who have recently completed a seat in some of our highest-profile departments to tell you a little more about what’s involved.
For the second year running, Pitmans Law has won the best work/life balance category in the Lex100 annual trainee survey.
