Ashfords is a national provider of legal, professional and regulatory services.

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.
