Trainee Solicitors Scheme
Gregory Abrams Davidson is enthusiastic about developing new talent through the Trainee Solicitor programme. We have up to two Trainee Solicitor vacancies a year. We have a broad spectrum of departments ranging from commercial services to private client so we can provide training and experience to suit the individual's skills or preferred areas of practice.
As well as placing emphasis on technical excellence we are looking for candidates with defining character and personality. We are interested in those who are team players but also who have their own individual innovative approach. When we recruit Trainee Solicitors, we are looking to commit to the future.
At Gregory Abrams Davidson you will feel like an important part of our team from day one. You will be given the opportunity to take an active role in the work with an appropriate level of responsibility.
We are also fortunate to have a team who not only enjoy working together but also enjoy an active social life.
The Training Establishment has overall responsibility for ensuring that the qualification requirements are met through your Training Principal. Supervisors have the responsibility for allocating work, supervising trainees on a day to day basis and reviewing performance. Trainees have the responsibilities for meeting their obligations under the training contract.
How to apply
Up to two Training Contracts are available with Gregory Abrams Davidson each year. Applications, including CV and a covering letter, should be sent to Tracey Parry, Practice Director. Closing date for applications is 24 months in advance of September commencement date, but no later than December of that year.
Potential trainees are short-listed after the first interview of the following April and the choice will be made after second interviews.
What we look for
The selection team looks for academic achievement and proven enthusiasm for law. It is helpful to have completed at least one months work experience with a legal practice during your legal studies and you will probably hold a degree at grade 2.1 or above. Voluntary work in the community, membership of groups or committees, personal achievements and a range of outside interests will count in your favour.
At interview you will need to be confident and well presented. You must demonstrate drive, ambition, good knowledge of current developments in the law and current affairs, an understanding of the legal profession and our particular clients and services. When you are preparing, think about what will set you apart from the other applicants and remember that the questions you ask are as important as your answers to our questions.
