Trainee Solicitors and Work Experience

We generally take only two trainee solicitors each year, and look for candidates who have a genuine interest in our firm and in at least one of our specialisms, as it is always our aim to retain our trainees on qualification.

Trainee Solicitor and Work Experience Applications

We are now accepting applications for trainees to start training contracts (periods of recognised training) in September 2020.

Please apply by CV and covering letter by email to trainees@wrigleys.co.uk. The closing date for all applications is 27 July 2018. Any queries should also be directed to that email address.

We may offer a limited number of work experience places to early applicants. Applications for training contracts are welcome up to and including 27 July 2018, but if you wish also to be considered for a work experience placement we must receive your application on or before 30 March 2018.

Your Training Contract

We offer seats in three or four of the following distinct areas

  • Property
  • Trusts, probate and tax planning
  • Pensions
  • Charities (including employment and commercial issues for charities and not for profit organisations)
  • Court of Protection

Wrigleys undertakes no litigation as such, but training and experience in contentious matters is available through our employment tribunal work and/or through secondment to another firm.

Trainees at Wrigleys are given early responsibility and make an important contribution to our teams.

Qualifications

The minimum qualifications are a degree, not necessarily in law, backed up with good results at A level or equivalent. A 2:1 or 1st class degree is preferred, though applicants with a 2:2 will be considered for interview if the rest of their application is sufficiently strong.

We particularly look for applications that demonstrate enthusiasm for our firm and for at least one of our specialist areas of work.

We are committed to providing equal opportunities in employment.
