Trainee Solicitor Contracts 2022

Opportunities: We are now accepting applications for two training contracts commencing March 2022.

Key dates: The deadline for applications is 5pm 30th April 2021 and we will be interviewing shortlisted candidates in May and June.

Interview process: Our aim is to get to know you and understand what you can offer Downs. There will be a detailed interview with our Practice Director and Staff Partner. The final stage will involve giving a presentation on a specified topic to a number of key figures in the Firm.

What we are looking for: We are looking for the brightest candidates but, for us, personality is also key. We understand that our clients value personal connections and so the ability to engage with people is of utmost importance. Downs has a welcoming atmosphere and we are looking for people who will thrive in and contribute to our supportive culture. We also value previous experience and skills developed in all areas of life from the legal sector to personal interests.

Our training contracts: We generally offer seats of 3-6 months with a variety of experience across our Departments and offices. We work with our Trainee Solicitors to understand their interests and talents and tailor their training accordingly. We are also willing to consider previous work-based experience to reduce the period of training, where appropriate.

To apply for a 2022 training contract please send your CV and covering letter to Amber O'Connor.
