Each year, we recruit around 25 trainees split between March and September intakes – based at our offices in Birmingham, Exeter, London and Manchester. All trainees work across a range of commercial seats and have the opportunity to spend time in one of our offices in the Middle East.
Trowers' trainees come from many different backgrounds and experiences – what they all share is a desire to be part of a strong team, to learn from talented colleagues and to embrace early responsibility for quality results.
We are currently recruiting for our training contract vacancies to start in 2026. We recruit the majority of our trainees through our summer vacation scheme but recognise that not everyone is able to complete a scheme so do also recruit a small number via our direct process.
All kinds of individuals build careers, connections, and flourish at Trowers & Hamlins, but there are a few things that they all have in common:
• Enthusiasm, a positive attitude and a drive to succeed
• A growth mindset
• Collaboration skills
• Resilience and strength of character
• Initiative and a sense of responsibility
• An innovative approach and versatility
• An analytical and logical mind with sound judgement
• Excellent communication skills and the ability to adapt them to your audience
• Strong academics*
*We look for candidates with a minimum of 128 UCAS points (ABB) from their top three A-Levels or equivalent, and a consistently strong predicted or achieved 2:1 degree. We take into account mitigating circumstances and do not automatically reject candidates who do not reach this minimum criteria.
