There are currently no live jobs for this employer

Training Contract

Wedlake Bell's approach is to recruit a small number of trainees each year. Our small, close knit intakes are able to receive high-quality training and experience high levels of client contact right from the start of their training. We are currently recruiting 8 trainees per year. 

How do I apply? 

Applications for the 2025 Training Contracts open on 1 November 2022. The deadline to submit your application is the 31 May 2023. 

To apply, you will need to submit an online application form. This includes a covering letter. 

What is the selection process? 

All applications are reviewed and selected candidates are invited to attend a first round interview day. The first round interview day will take place in the summer and consists of a written assessment and an interview. This will likely be conducted as a virtual interview. 

Successful candidates will be invited to attend an in-person final round interview and final written assessment which will take place at our office in London. On the day, there will also be a Networking lunch so that you can meet more members of the team and find out more about the firm.

Vacation Scheme

The Wedlake Bell summer vacation scheme offers 8 candidates a fantastic insight into the firm. The scheme is 3 weeks long and you are able to experience working with 3 teams during the scheme. Each week, you are assigned a fee-earner and you will become actively involved in their case-load. Alongside this, you'll experience life as a potential trainee – attending training and firm social events. 

The scheme is very structured and successful applicants will gain first-hand experience of life as a trainee solicitor at Wedlake Bell and an insight into our open and friendly culture. 

The 2023 scheme will run from Monday 26 June 2023 – Friday 14 July 2023. 

How to apply

Applications open on 1 November 2022 and will close on 31 January 2023.
