Applications open on 1 October 2021
We have up to four training contract opportunities in our growing Bristol office. If you’re a creative thinker who wants a career that values personality as much as professionalism, we want to hear from you. We’re welcoming applications from both a law and non-law background for opportunities to start in September 2024. You will experience four different areas of our Insurance practice.
The deadline for applications is 13 March 2022. Successful candidates will be invited to attend the RPC assessment day held during April. Our assessment days can be run virtually.
As a Trainee, we believe you’ll deliver your best if you’re free to be you. And that means being able to ask questions openly, being supported to develop your strengths, and having the right opportunities to grow. Our physical offices are non-hierarchical and open plan. This means from day one you’ll be sitting close to a partner. In our virtual office, we use video call and messaging technology to ensure support is available and to maintain our non-hierarchical culture. Whether you’re handling complex insurance claims, resolving large-scale global disputes, or providing commercial advice and transactional support, your opinions will be listened to and respected.
We believe personal growth comes from being challenged. You’ll be given real responsibility throughout your training, but you’ll never be left to fend for yourself. Our training is award-winning. You’ll have a Supervising Partner and Associate to help you day to day, a mentor to show you the ropes, and a dedicated Trainee development team to support you.
We also believe you’ll grow if you’re free to explore. At least six months will be spent in four different areas of our practice, so you can discover where you fit in the best. You may have an opportunity to be seconded to one of our clients as an in-house lawyer. This will give you the chance to form genuine relationships with the people behind the cases. Real people with lives away from their desks. You’ll use your personality to become more commercially aware and legally proficient.
In addition, as an RPC Trainee you may get an opportunity to spend six months of your contract seconded to our Bristol, Hong Kong, London or Singapore offices depending on where you’re based.
