Does Thursfields sound like the right firm for you? Are you aligned with our values and ethos? If so we want to hear from you. We are always looking for new talent to welcome to the team and to join us on our exciting growth journey.
Each year we recruit a cohort of trainee solicitors who are seeking quality legal training in a regional law firm. We recognise they also bring fresh eyes to our business and we are keen to hear their ideas and perspective.

Our goal is to attract the most talented candidates regardless of their gender, age, ethnicity, sexual orientation, religion or belief, disability or socioeconomic background. In line with our Equality & Diversity Strategy, this year we particularly welcome applicants from BAME backgrounds.
