Training Contract 2020
We currently offer training contracts across five of our UK offices: Birmingham, Manchester, London, Chelmsford and Cambridge.
We want to develop solicitors who will be the future of Kennedys. Throughout your two years with us, you’ll be supported by senior solicitors and partners to help you become a competent, confident and commercially-driven lawyer.
Kennedys trainees are given early responsibility and you’ll be a valued member of the team from day one. We expect our trainees to be confident and articulate, as well as self-aware and resourceful.
We encourage diversity and an environment built upon different skills and talents. Our atmosphere is friendly and supportive and our relationships are built on trust, so we are looking for trainees that are sociable team players.
Our two year training contracts allow you to develop relevant experience and skills that will set you up in your career as an excellent solicitor. During the training contract, you’ll be required to gain practical experience in at least three distinct areas of law. You’ll be able to choose from four different six month ‘seats’ in specialist areas, covering both contentious and non-contentious work. You may also have the opportunity to go on an international or client secondment.
