Our annual trainee intake is deliberately small, so we can really focus on turning you into Peters & Peters specialists. That makes a difference. Over half of our partners were once trainees here too.
I really enjoy the combination of a social working environment with high quality, interesting work. Everyone knows everyone and people get on well with each other, so the atmosphere is always really friendly and pleasant. The culture is balanced with compelling cases that rival that of magic circle firms. It’s the best of both worlds.
Stefan Ansah, Newly Qualified Solicitor
As a Peters & Peter’s trainee you will have the unique opportunity to carry out two dedicated litigation seats and a third distinct area of your choice through an external secondment.
All trainees share an office with a partner or senior lawyer for maximum on-the-job learning. Each trainee is also allocated a mentor for support and advice, a supervisor for feedback and guidance, and a buddy to show you the ropes.
Plus of course we offer comprehensive training, ongoing feedback and regular performance reviews.
What we look for
You’ll need to be tenacious, driven and committed to a steep learning curve.
In return you will benefit from early responsibility, plenty of support and high quality and stimulating work.
As ours is very much a people business, candidates must demonstrate strong presentation and communication skills, as well as the ability to work well in teams.
Applicants should be commercially aware and demonstrate a keen interest in our work. They will also be proactive, enthusiastic and have a sense of humour.
We are looking for trainees with strong academic ability, who will be able to cope with complex legal issues and technical drafting. We recruit from a wide range of universities, taking both law and non-law graduates who have achieved a degree at 2.1 level or above.
How to apply
We are now accepting applications for our Training Contract commencing in Autumn 2024. The deadline for applications is Tuesday 28 February 2023.
Peters & Peters champions diversity and inclusiveness. If you need any adjustments to help you during the recruitment process please let us know.
