During Easter and summer each year, we run week-long vacation schemes in Bristol, London and Manchester. They’re the perfect opportunity for you get a taster of what it’s like to be at trainee at TLT. You’ll get stuck into real client work, have the chance to network with lawyers and Partners over breakfast seminars and ask existing trainees any niggling questions you have. What’s more, we’ve built an assessment into the week so you won’t have to worry about making a separate training contract application.
We are described by clients as an ‘energetic firm’ with an ‘open-minded entrepreneurial culture’ and have previously been named as a ‘first class’ employer by Best Companies Limited.
We provide a range of legal services to the clean energy, financial services, retail and consumer goods, digital, leisure, public sector and real estate sectors. Core legal specialisms include real estate, banking and lender services, commercial, corporate, employment and litigation, but we believe there’s more to legal work than being a lawyer - you need to embrace management, technology and business skills too.
You will meet a wide range of the firm's employees every day be it undertaking work or at formal and informal networking events. You will meet our current trainees who will be able to support and guide you through this process. You will meet our Partners who will provide guidance through the week. Finally you will meet our clients and where appropriate attend client visits.
At the end of the week you will undertake an assessment process including a strength based interview, a group exercise and a presentation.
The Ideal Candidate
You could be studying for a law or a non-law degree, or you may be looking to change profession. We have no preference as we will be assessing you on your ability to become a brilliant lawyer, not on your present legal knowledge. We are looking for well rounded individuals who have the ability to develop excellent technical and commercial skills and help continue TLT's growth and success.
