Druces may be over 250 years old but we invest a great deal of resources into staying relevant to our current and future client base through continuous professional development, industry event participation and market analysis. However, more than that, we want to be a firm that leads the debate in our chosen industry sectors and to that end, we are involved in a number of sector collaborations which position Druces as a thought-leader, market commentator and recognised sector participant.
Our trainees are encouraged to participate in that industry sector involvement and we see it as crucial to a trainee’s development to have that sort of exposure. Do take a look at the exciting industry partnerships we have entered into to give you an insight into where our focus lies.
We want to see bright creative minds join our expanding team. Our firm values people skills and creativity as much as high marks and academic achievement. Trainee recruitment is an important process for Druces. We invest a lot of time and energy in the process as it gives us the opportunity to recruit individuals who we hope will grow with our firm and contribute to its ongoing development.
We want to recruit dedicated and committed individuals who want to contribute to the continuing success of Druces and develop extremely rewarding careers.
We will work with you and help you to become the most astute and commercial lawyer you can possibly be. As part of your development as a trainee within the firm, you will spend six-month stages in the following four practice areas.
Unlike larger firms, Druces provides opportunities for much more hands-on experience and one-on-one attention from our highly experienced solicitors. As a Druces trainee, you will get a first-class legal grounding and access to experienced, talented, approachable and collegiate lawyers. Not only that but we reckon you will really enjoy learning your trade in the Druces environment.
Please note that we are unable to provide funding for the LPC.
Our 2020 Training Contract application period is now open and we have opportunities for one candidate for each intake; March 2020 and September 2020.
We want to keep the application process simple, so please follow our step-by-step guide below:
Each application will be individually reviewed by a member of our recruitment team, and we will contact you to let you know whether your application will be taken to our assessment event. We aim to be in contact with you by the end of October 2018. Please note that we will not be able to provide individual feedback.
We understand that choosing the right firm to train in is key, so our assessment event which is to be held in November 2018, is an excellent chance for us and you, to mutually decide whether a Training Contract with Druces is the right choice. You will get to meet partners and associates of the firm, and will prepare group and individual presentations. We will also ask you to complete a written test and you will get the chance to meet some our current trainees who will discuss their training and answer any questions you may have.
Successful applicants will then go through a two-stage interview process, at which point we make our final decision.
To apply, please note that the deadline for 2020 applications is Sunday 30th September 2018, 5pm.
