Trainee Solicitors - Guernsey
Collas Crill is one of only two firms locally that are accredited by the Solicitors' Regulation Authority to provide Training Contracts for those wishing to qualify as Solicitors (of England and Wales). We are looking to recruit two trainees for our Guernsey office, to join us in September 2017.
As a trainee solicitor under a two year Training Contract, you will be supported by a partner or senior associate throughout your contract. You will have the opportunity not only to learn by watching and listening as they carry out their roles on a daily basis, but will be encouraged to have as much 'hands on' experience as you can and you will be given direct client contact as soon as possible.
Your contract will involve you in placements ("seats") within at least three different departments, and through our links within the City the possibility of a secondment to a top tier London law firm. Once you have qualified you have the opportunity to secure a permanent position with us.
Trainees are the future of the firm. We don't just choose bright people as trainees: we choose people we believe are capable of doing business. The kind of person you are matters, because clients do business with people they respect and like. We look for people who can add value to our firm as they develop. You provide enthusiasm, intellect and character; we provide a professional, supportive and friendly environment to qualify in and develop your legal career. You'll already have obtained a 2:1 degree or equivalent and have completed, or be due to complete the Legal Practice Course.
Guernsey applicants must possess a Status Declaration or a valid Housing Licence that entitles them to work in the island.
