Type of opportunity:
Ashfords is a national provider of legal, professional and regulatory services. We combine legal expertise, commercial experience and our wider network to help clients achieve their goals, providing value for time and money. Ashfords has six offices located in the South West, including London, with our registered office based in the vibrant city of Exeter.
The best way to see if Ashfords is right for you is to attend a summer scheme. The summer schemes are designed to give an honest insight into what working here is really like. You can choose to apply to a summer scheme at either the Bristol or Exeter office and spend time in two departments, where you will be provided with some challenging and rewarding trainee work. There will also be opportunities to spend time with the current trainees, getting first-hand knowledge of what it's like to be a part of the trainee programme. The summer scheme week will conclude with an assessment centre where you will have the opportunity to secure a future training contract with Ashfords.
We recruit 10 trainee solicitors each year and are committed to a 'recruit to retain' policy. As a Trainee Solicitor you can expect to attend meetings with a range of clients and become involved in real cases. You will be mentored by lawyers across the firm who will expose you to the best quality work, supporting you to achieve your legal potential, spending six months in each of your four seats.
Trainees can choose between a Bristol or South West-based training contract and we offer flexibility for trainees to complete a seat in another office if the opportunity arises, including London. Aside from working, you will build relationships with other likeminded trainees who are eager to engage in social activities, ranging from the annual ball, to sports clubs and charity events.
