About us

At RPC, you can be you. In an environment that’s real. Strikingly real.

If you value character over conformity, the unique over the uniform, and ambition over apathy, let’s talk.

For us, success comes from building real-life relationships. Real-life relationships with our clients as much as our people. And it comes from thinking creatively to achieve the best commercial solutions. We thrive in an environment that’s collaborative, forward-thinking and where you’re free to express your personality. An environment that allows you to make the most of your strengths.

So if you’re a creative thinker who wants a career in a firm that values personality as much as professionalism, we want to hear from you.

Current opportunities

Our business is built on mutual respect and trust. That’s where you come in. From day one, you’ll have contact with our partners; you'll have contact with clients; and you'll be given real responsibility. As a trainee, you could be assisting with large-scale global disputes, or offering business-critical commercial advice.

But you won't be left to fend for yourself, you’ll receive first-rate training. You'll be able to develop your skills and you'll be encouraged to use your creativity to solve complex problems. We're agile and flexible, and that's reflected in our approach to our trainees. You can choose to spend time in a wide variety of practice areas supporting a range of dynamic sectors. And not just in London, with training contracts, placements and schemes on offer in Bristol, Hong Kong and Singapore, too.
