Salary: 1st year £39,000, 2nd year £40,000
This is the start of your full-time career with Simmons & Simmons. Join us in London or Bristol to access a two-year programme, and an unexpected legal career. With four seats – that’s six-month stints in different practice areas – you’ll soon find out where your interests lie. And with the help of our unique Compass training programme, you’ll work your way up to qualifying as an associate with us. There’s a lot packed into your training contract, so we’ve created a full career journey to help you understand what’s involved and how it will benefit you.
Ideally placed to build a long-term career, our trainees in Bristol uncover a world of high-end clients and gain immediate exposure to complex challenges. Over four six-month seats, with the possibility of client or international secondment, you’ll build an impressive legal career. Integrated with our wider UK team, you’ll spend a year studying the LPC alongside our London intake at BPP in London, before returning to Bristol to start your training contract.
We want to hear from ambitious future lawyers, who are ready to leave their mark. We’re looking for students who are on course for at least a 2:1 in any degree subject. That said, academic performance isn’t everything: that’s why we look for raw talent and potential throughout our assessment process.
Please note that we fill all of our roles on a first come first served basis, we therefore advise you to apply as soon as possible and put your very best into it.
Applications open 01 December 2019 for our September 2022 Training Contracts in Bristol.
