One of our main objectives is to recruit trainee solicitors and retain them on qualification; organic growth is the backbone of the Firm.
We have retained a considerable proportion of our trainee intake in recent years and look to continue that trend. Growth from within is very much a priority. Indeed, a number of our current partners originally joined the firm as trainee solicitors.
We typically recruit three trainees each year with training contracts commencing on 1 September every year.
You must have a strong academic record, high standards and a strong work ethic. You should be a great communicator and show common sense. We require you to have achieved 340 UCAS points from your best three A-Levels and a strong 2:1. If you have undertaken the GDL or LPC we require you to have achieved a commendation or above.
You need to be enthusiastic, committed and have the ability to use your initiative. A sense of humour is also essential.
If selected for a training contract you will spend two years working in four different areas of law and in each discipline you will receive a high level of training, whilst experiencing considerable client contact.
If you would like to apply for a training contract for September 2017 or 2018, please send your CV together with a covering letter explaining why you want to work for Blacks Solicitors LLP and what you will bring to the Firm.
All applications should be made by email to TrainingContracts@LawBlacks.com marked for the attention of our Training Principal, Tom Moyes, Partner. The deadline for September 2017 and 2018 applications is 31 January 2017.
We look forward to hearing from you.
