Applications are invited for a trainee solicitor position. The application period is from 26 July 2019 to 30 August 2019. One training contract will start in 2019 and the other in March 2020.

Jordans Solicitors is an independent medium sized law firm which serves both the business community and private individuals across a range of specialisms. We have recognised expertise in both commercial and private work.

Who Should Apply?

In recruiting trainees we are looking to select our solicitors of the future. We therefore require committed and loyal trainees who are keen to build a successful career with us. We offer a broad-based training which gives early and increasing responsibility to trainees in a supportive environment. Applicants must therefore be willing to be challenged from day one.

Ideally applicants will have a 2:1 degree but we do look beyond the degree. We are looking for trainees who are bright, articulate, creative, practical and hard working.

We take pride in our ability to build long term working relationships with clients. It is therefore essential that our trainees have the potential to be at ease with clients and be able to relate well to them. Interpersonal skills, a professional yet friendly manner and sound commercial awareness are some of the criteria we use to measure the suitability of applicants.

We do not just take on new graduates in their early twenties. People from many professions convert to the law and find their previous experience is a real asset.
