Trainee Recruitment

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.

The size of the firm makes it possible to build strong working relationships with colleagues and, as such, the firm really works together as a team. Trainees are actively encouraged to become involved in marketing and social activities and there are plenty of firm-wide internal social events, many of which are trainee-led.

The Marriott Harrison Summer Vacation Scheme runs from June to August, with each candidate spending a week with the firm. A selection of those candidates will be invited back for an interview for a training contract. The deadline for applications is 23rd March each year.

To apply for a training contract all applicants must take part in our Summer Vacation Scheme.

Applications for our 2021 summer vacation scheme are currently closed. We anticipate that applications for our 2022 scheme will open in November 2021 and a link will be available on this page.
