Apprenticeships

In my role I enjoy having independence to carry out tasks on my own. I also know I can ask for any help I may need.

Learn from the best and get a career head start with an apprenticeship.

We’re a diverse and innovative business, and nothing like the idea of a law firm you might have in your head.

You can become an apprentice paralegal or train to work in business administration. If you're a more analytical person, our Cyber Security Technologist apprenticeship or our AAT (Association of Accountancy Technicians) apprenticeship could suit you more.

Whatever you choose, you’ll work towards an industry-recognised qualification and develop skills that’ll last you a lifetime.
