Hopson Solicitors are looking for a full time Trainee Solicitor with an interest in employment and commercial law in particular. We are looking for someone to commence work with the firm from July/August 2018.
As a firm, we are dedicated to providing our Trainee Solicitors with high quality training across a range of specialist areas – typically employment, corporate/commercial, private client and dispute resolution. Our training ensures an essential commercial grounding whilst developing the individual’s skills both personally and professionally.
You will not just be a “photocopier” as a trainee at Hopson Solicitors. You will be given time by all of our staff and will gain quality experience from day one. You will work alongside our highly experienced fee earners and partners and our great support team in a down to earth and supportive environment.
This is a great opportunity to undertake quality training within a supportive and forward-thinking team environment with excellent prospects for career development. Our intention, of course, is to retain the people we train. Hopson Solicitors actively encourages all staff (including Trainee Solicitors) to get fully involved with all aspects of the firm’s networking, professional and social responsibilities, and help advertise the firm’s commitment to providing a high quality service and excellent value to all clients.
Key Skills Required: We are looking for a very enthusiastic individual, who possesses initiative, strong social skills, excellent communication skills and an appetite for success. Those who are just “looking to qualify” need not apply.
We are looking for candidates with:
- A respectable set of A Level results;
- A minimum 2.1 in their degree from a renowned university;
- Previous legal work experience, preferably taking in some elements of employment and corporate law;
- Commercial awareness and some knowledge of how businesses operate;
- Drive and determination in order to assist the firm in achieving the best results for our clients.
To apply, please forward your CV and covering letter to firstname.lastname@example.org.
