Training Contracts commencing September 2022


Each year we hope to recruit a number trainees, who are committed to the local area, to join us not only to complete their Training Contract but continuing their journey in their career in law.

Over the two year Training Contract, Trainees usually rotate through four seats of six months duration.  Whilst seats can not be guaranteed we aim to work with our Trainees to ensure we can offer seats that align with their interests.

Recruitment Process

We will launch our application process in September 2021 for Training Contracts to commence in September 2022.  Application forms will be available on our careers page at this time. 

Candidates should have either completed their Law degree (2:1 or higher) or be in their final year with a predicted 2:1 or higher.  Where candidates have not completed a Law degree they should have commenced or finished their GDL.  We look at candidates who have either completed the LPC before commencing their Training Contract, or who are looking to study this alongside their Training Contract.

What do our current Trainees say:

“I joined H&H in September and was quickly made to feel incredibly welcome. Everyone at the firm is so friendly and settling in couldn’t have been easier. Throughout my training I have gradually been given more responsibility and I’ve had the opportunity to do fantastic work. With the firms support, I have now reached a stage where I am now comfortably running my own matters. If I ever have any questions about the work I’m doing or any other queries my colleagues will always give me the time of day to talk things through.”

“Upon joining Holmes & Hills as a Trainee in September 2020, I was instantly welcomed by a supportive and friendly team, who have provided guidance and fantastic opportunities to assist with a range of matters. The office and facilities provide a professional and collaborative environment, in particular, across departments involving joint projects. The cases and matters are interesting and having the opportunity to liaise with clients, tailor advice and practice legal drafting have been especially enjoyable. I look forward to continuing my training and new opportunities with Holmes & Hills.”
