Training Contracts

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.

The Role:

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.

Overseen by our Training Principal, our aim is to provide as much client exposure as possible to enable the trainee to learn the reality of being a Solicitor and gain the relevant skills and experience in a fully supervised training environment.

Successful applicants will have the opportunity to gain experience in at least three distinct practice areas (often four areas, depending upon business need).

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.
