Trainee Solicitor - 2022 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 a real insight into life with Ashfords.

During the summer scheme you will spend a week at either 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 Solicitors, gaining first-hand knowledge of what it’s like to be an Ashfords’ trainee. 

For those applicants who attend the summer scheme, there is an assessment centre on the final day, where you will have the chance to secure a 2024 Training Contract.

Trainee Solicitor - Assessment Centre

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: 

·       Written exercise

·      1-2-1 roleplay

·       Partner interview
