Trainee Solicitor Recruitment

We are presently in the process of recruiting Trainee Solicitors to form our 2016 intake. The application process for that intake CLOSED on 29th August 2014, and we regret that no further applications can now be accepted. Thank you to everyone who has applied, as always we have been delighted at the level of interest that has been shown and the sheer volume of applications received from so many talented people. We are now working our way through the process of selecting the best candidates who will be our solicitors of the future. We shall contact those who are to be invited for first interview by Friday 17 October 2014.

In the meantime, please watch this space for announcements as to when applications for our next annual trainee solicitor recruitment are invited.

What we look for: 

Each year, we look for the very best new trainee solicitors to join us and to become part of the exciting future of this firm. We look for a strong academic record (a minimum of 2:1 degree level), as well as excellent interpersonal and team working skills, drive and enthusiasm. We would like candidates to show an ability to organise themselves and others, and that you can combine technical ability with a common sense approach to your work. We would also like to see some details about your other personal achievements and interests. We believe in recruiting the right people to help drive our business forward, which means that we are interested in you as an individual, and to hear how you feel your personal skills and qualities will benefit JMW. Some link to the local area is preferred but not essential. We are seeking candidates who can work to the very highest standards in order to meet our clients’ expectations.

What we provide:

JMW takes its training commitments very seriously and is proud of the fact that a number of our existing partners joined the firm as trainees.

Our trainees receive high quality training in at least 3 of our departments, working in both contentious and non contentious areas. We believe in giving our trainees very hands on experience, developing your legal skills and also ensuring that you learn to work effectively in a commercial environment.

Please note that we do not offer sponsorship to trainee candidates for LPC costs.
