Our clients range from FTSE 100 businesses and governmental organisations to privately managed business and wealthy individuals. Our clients’ interests always come first. Strong personal relationships, dedicated client teams and a deep understanding of our clients’ businesses mean they have confidence that we can respond to their needs effectively and efficiently.

  • Private Wealth
  • Transport, Logistics & Infrastructure
  • Financial Institutions
  • Insurance

Our regional heritage, flexibility and commitment to innovation enable us to offer focused, relevant services as a compelling alternative to other firms.

Training Programme:

At Womble Bond Dickinson we look for intellectually able, motivated and enthusiastic graduates from any discipline or background. Successful applicants will understand the need to provide practical, commercial advice to clients. You’ll share the firm’s commitment to self-development and teamwork and its desire to provide clients with services that match their highest expectations.

We look at our trainee recruitment as a long-term investment. Trainees at Womble Bond Dickinson will have an opportunity to spend six months in four Business Groups, gaining a real breadth of experience along the way. 

This is your training contract and it's up to you to make the most of it, but along the way we offer fantastic opportunities to develop your legal career in a growing firm...

Our supervisors are trained and fully supported on an ongoing basis. You'll have access to high quality work and senior client contacts. We regularly second trainees to our most high profile clients. We keep our trainee intake relatively small, which means that more often than not, you'll be the only trainee in a team, giving you a large amount of access to the experience and advice from people who are happy to teach.

We're looking for people across eight of our UK offices. There is no typical Womble Bond Dickinson trainee - our trainees come from varied backgrounds and bring a range of different experience, and that's very important to us. 

What all of our people do share is an enthusiasm for law and a passion for our business. Beyond that we look for our trainees to have a strong academic background, although this is not the only criteria we use when shortlisting applications. It's as important to us that candidates can demonstrate commercial awareness and a natural ability when dealing with people.

When and how to apply:

The first stage of the recruitment process is an online application form assessing the core behaviours we look for: thinking, communication, motivation and drive, teamwork and a commitment to our business and our clients.

If you successfully pass this stage you'll be invited to complete an online video interview.  Which is an opportunity to tell us more about yourself.

The next step will be to attend an assessment day in the location of your choice (Newcastle, Bristol, Southampton or London). This consists of a number of exercises designed to assess the core behaviours.  You'll also meet with trainees, partners and other people from around the business.
