The opportunity for you
Are you currently studying your A-levels or equivalent and interested in an Solicitor apprenticeship? Our six-year apprenticeship programme has been designed to help you hit the ground running from day one. You'll work towards an LLB (Hons) Law degree and a Solicitor Level 7 Apprenticeship. Each week you'll spend four days working in a practice area on client cases, with one day studying with our training provider, University of Law (ULaw). Knowledge, skills and experience
We look for individuals who're on track for a minimum of AAB (or equivalent) in their A-levels and have a minimum of seven GCSEs at grade 6 or above including Maths and English.
We use Rare Recruitment's Contextual Recruitment System (CRS) which allows us to consider your achievements in the context in which they were obtained. We understand that not all candidate's achievements look the same on paper - and we want to recruit the best people, from every background.
Being an apprentice will require you to juggle studying and working. We look for individuals who demonstrate a commitment to both. You'll have to be focused, committed, and ready to stay motivated, even in the face of challenging legal and academic issues. Benefits

- Hybrid working (Offering the opportunity to work remotely, while maintaining a social boundary by working from our offices for 3 days a week)
