Training Contracts

Solicitors London

Carter Lemon Camerons offers a comprehensive two-year training contract, with possible opportunities for new recruits.

The scheme allows trainees to work within every department of the firm, usually spending six months with each team.

Our aim is to give trainees a good breadth of experience and support them in becoming an invaluable part of the team. During the training contract, they will work closely alongside our fee-earners and gain practical experience in areas including research, drafting documents, legal procedure and dealing with clients.

Monthly lunchtime seminars, training sessions and external courses will also form a key part of training.

Candidates for the training contract should have:

  • A good degree (preferably a 2:1 or above)
  • The Legal Practice Course (LPC), completed within the last three years (commendation/distinction preferred)
  • Experience of working in a solicitors’ or other professional office preferred
  • All preliminary qualifications required by the Law Society to start a training contract
  • A high standard of oral and written English
  • Excellent IT skills
  • A track record of showing initiative and innovation.

As a firm we recognise the importance of developing a friendly, professional environment and are committed to the continual development of all our staff – whether they’re a new starter or have been with us for many years.

We also place great store in fostering a strong team spirit, encouraging a healthy work/life balance and recruiting people from a wide range of backgrounds.

By creating an environment in which our team feel they are supported we believe that we are well placed to get the best from all our staff.

Our next trainee intake will be April 2018 and anyone interested in applying should submit their CV and covering letter to Janet Dayman at employment@cartercamerons.com by 3rd January 2018.
