Each year, we receive a large number of applications from candidates hoping to secure a training contract and/or a place on our Summer Placement Scheme.

The considerable number of applicants means the process remains fiercely competitive.

The application process takes time and effort to complete and we want to make sure applicants have enough information about Charles Russell Speechlys before committing to applying.

Trainees are involved in a variety of work that is intellectually stimulating and can involve a great deal of client contact. They are expected to take immediate responsibility and to take initiative for the work they are given. Throughout the training contract, trainees need to be able to demonstrate their commercial awareness in the matters they are working on and develop a range of skills to enable them to become a successful lawyer.

As daunting as this might sound, trainees are always in good company as there is on-going support from supervisors, the HR team and their peers.

There is a social committee that organises a number of sporting and social events for the entire firm and also a corporate social responsibility committee, which is exceptionally active and an area which our trainees usually find very rewarding.

We are currently accepting applications for 2018 training contracts. Please click here to apply.
