Why Irwin Mitchell?

We’re one of the top law firms in the UK and do some amazing work for both businesses and individuals. Our lawyers are regularly involved with high-profile cases all the way up to the Supreme Court and our work has even resulted in changes to UK law itself.

As an apprentice, you’ll be part of the team that makes these cases happen and you’ll have a chance to make a real impact.

Although we do very important work, Irwin Mitchell is still a relaxed and friendly place to work. It’s an attitude that comes from our roots in ‘Britain’s Largest Village’ – Sheffield – and has spread to our locations nationwide.

You’ll have our support through every step of your apprenticeship and everyone you work with will be happy to help. You won’t have to wear a suit and tie all the time and you can use flexible working to make your apprenticeship fit around your life.
