Trainee Solicitor - 2017 Summer Scheme

We're looking for exceptional candidates who will be an asset to our firm, but we also know that we need to impress the best candidates. To see if we're right for each other, you can attend our summer scheme, which provides an honest insight into working at Ashfords.

On the Summer Scheme you will spend a week at our Exeter or Bristol office working in two departments, getting to grips with some challenging yet rewarding tasks. You'll also spend time with our current trainees, getting first-hand knowledge of what it's like to be on the trainee programme.

For those applicants who attend the summer scheme, the assessment centre takes place on the final day.

For those who want to apply directly for a training contract without attending the summer scheme, there is the assessment centre option.  

The Assessment Centre consists of three main elements:  a group exercise, an individual exercise and a formal interview.
