Join our team

We are looking for highly motivated individuals with both a strong academic record and a common sense, pragmatic approach. An ability to work well in a team is particularly important given the firm’s size and structure. What motivates our people is being key to our business and making a positive contribution to our clients’ and the firm’s business. We support our people’s career potential and develop their leadership skills to the highest level. In turn, we look to our people to help our clients realise their ambitions to grow successful businesses.

The programme for trainees typically comprises four seats within corporate, dispute resolution, employment, commercial/data protection/IP and IT, real estate and banking/restructuring. We offer trainees high quality and varied work, increasing in complexity as they progress through their training contract. Trainees usually sit with a partner in each seat, ensuring that they receive direct guidance from experienced practitioners throughout their training contract. Our partners and associates are always on hand to offer support and guidance when needed.

As a trainee you will be supported in completing your Professional Skills Course throughout your training contract and encouraged to attend additional seminars and presentations to broaden the scope of your development.

A day in the life of a trainee solicitor

Mariya Uzunova is a trainee solicitor at Marriott Harrison. She was recruited from our Summer Vacation Scheme (as with all of our trainees). Here she describes a typical day in the office from the time that she spent in the firm’s Real Estate Department.

8:30-9:30: I commute into the City and grab a croissant and coffee on the way to work.

Summer Vacation Scheme

Our Summer Vacation Scheme is an excellent way to discover whether working for a specialist business law firm is for you. You will be involved in real project work from all of our departments and get to see what it is like to make a genuine contribution to live transactions.

The Scheme is not only your chance to gain valuable work experience, but it is also our chance to gauge whether you may have the character and ability to be a successful trainee solicitor here. At present we recruit all our trainees from participants in our Vacation Scheme.

The Scheme typically runs from June to August, with each participant spending a week with the firm.
