Training Contracts at Bridge McFarland

Great emphasis is placed on building a strong relationship with trainees from the very beginning and so we recommend that a potential candidate apply for a vacation placement as soon as they realise an interest in the legal profession.

Our approach to training is extremely flexible & therefore we are able to tailor a bespoke training package for each individual.

Bridge McFarland attracts clients of all backgrounds and deals with a variety of case sizes; this enables us to give trainees a diverse range of experiences which will help the individual discover the area of law that they are truly passionate about.

The firm prides itself in the quality of client care it provides and realises the importance of integrating client care early on in the training package. This will enable the trainee to quickly grow in confidence and skill when handling our clients.

Successful applicants will demonstrate self motivation to work independently and as part of a team; good interpersonal skills; a positive approach to working under pressure in a busy environment and a methodical approach to tasks and problem solving. Candidates must also be committed to developing a career in Lincolnshire and East Yorkshire.

As a precursor to the offer of a Training Contract, prospective candidates will be required to undertake a paid work placement either during a holiday period or as a fixed term Legal Assistant’s position. This may be in a support capacity for individuals in the early stages of their degree or as a Legal Assistant for those in the latter stages of their training.

Applications for a training contract must be submitted by completing a Trainee Solicitor Application form.

The closing date for applications is 28th February and shortlisting will commence in March with interviews being held in April.  The number of training contracts will vary each year and will be dependant on the requirements of the firm at that time.

Further information can be found in the Trainee Solicitor Recruitment Policy below.
