Legal Graduate Vacancies 2018

Our legal team supports all of our businesses in managing their legal risks. It plays a big role in helping us to reach our strategic aims, to protect our reputation, and to look after our customers’ needs.

You’ll be working in a busy commercial setting, and collaborating with many teams across our company. You’ll develop a balance of legal and non-legal knowledge in a practical way, and across different disciplines – including pensions law, life insurance, commercial contracts, dispute resolution and asset management.

During your traineeship, you’ll work towards your entry qualification to the Law Society of Scotland. We’ll provide the support and mandatory training you’ll need to achieve this. And in your second year, there’s also the chance of a secondment with a commercial law firm – Burness Paull.
