Type of opportunity:
At RPC, you can be you. In an environment that’s real. Strikingly real.
Each year, we appoint Trainees from a law or non-law background, on a full-time contract for two years. Our business is built on trust and mutual respect, so we only work with authentic people with a drive to achieve great things. This means you’ll be sitting close to a Partner and given real responsibility throughout your training.
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 including; insurance, commercial litigation, construction, corporate/M&A, IP and technology, retail, commercial contracts, media, real estate, employment and pensions, outsourcing, regulatory, tax, international trade and competition.
Our training is award-winning. You’ll have a Supervising Partner and Associate to help you day to day, a mentor to show you the ropes, and a dedicated Trainee development team to support you.
We also believe you’ll grow if you’re free to explore. At least six months will be spent in four different areas of our practice, so you can discover where you fit in the best. You may have an opportunity to be seconded to one of our clients as an in-house lawyer. This will give you the chance to form genuine relationships with the people behind the cases. Real people with lives away from their desks. You’ll use your personality to become more commercially aware and legally proficient.
In addition, as an RPC Trainee you may get an opportunity to spend six months of your contract seconded to our Bristol, Hong Kong, or Singapore offices depending on where you’re based.
So if you value character over conformity, the unique over the uniform, and ambition over apathy, let’s talk.
