Every year Tollers Solicitors recruits a number of trainees . Our training programme is second to none…

We have a reputation as a friendly, progressive and dynamic firm. We are committed to providing first class IT services, including on-line communications, extensive reference libraries and a range of electronic legal data sources.

We have a minimum of two and a maximum of four trainee solicitor vacancies each year and there are opportunities to experience different working environments in all of our offices.

A typical training programme is divided into four “seats” of six months each. These are spent in different units/offices within the firm. At Tollers we place great emphasis on the structure and progression of your training. You will make an important contribution from the start of your training contract, taking responsibility from your first day with us, within a well-organised and supportive team-based environment.

What are we looking for:

Team Skills:
You will be an essential part of the team and need to be able to interact comfortably with your peers and Partners, both on a work and a social level.

Commercial Acumen:
Being technically astute is not enough. Value is added to clients by understanding the commercial world in which they operate in.

Intellectual Ability:
You will need to have the ability to gain at least a 2:1 in your principal degree.

As well as academic success, achievement in other areas of your life is important.

You need to be comfortable working under pressure in tough situations. Legal work is generally hard and demanding and will test you to the limit.

We believe that you work better in a supportive and fun environment. In return, we offer outstanding all-round legal training, excellent rates of pay and a generous holiday and benefits package.

Law Training Contracts

From the start of your training contract you will work on real cases and matters for clients in both our ‘For Business’ and ‘For You’ Services areas.

If you have a lot to offer and want to train outside of the City in a progressive firm “well able to meet and exceed the requirements of the Training Regulations” , then contact us.

The Solicitors Regulation Authority described the Training Programme at Tollers as: “An excellent environment for learning legal practice”

There is a good structured performance review process which is actively carried out and the involvement of the Training Principal ensures consistency in monitoring of trainees”.
