The Period of Recognised Training (PORT), previously known as a ‘training contract’, is the final stage of training for prospective solicitors. The idea of a training contract is to encourage practical application, in a work-based setting, of the knowledge gained over the duration of the qualifying law degree and the Legal Practice Course (LPC).
Once the PORT is completed, and i’s are dotted and t’s crossed, one more name will be added to the SRA’s roll of solicitors.
Applications are due to open on the 1st November 2017, please check back then.
Our ethos is 'in this together' and we believe our team members should be rewarded for their hard work throughout the year. In addition to a competitive salary, we offer a discretionary annual company bonus for all of our team members.
We are incredibly proud to be listed in the Sunday Times 100 Best Companies to Work For 2016 and winner of the Investors in People Excellence in Reward and Recognition award.
We understand life isn't all about work and therefore we offer flexible working to our team members to help accommodate other responsibilities such as family needs, educational commitments and personal obligations.
Our flexitime allows you to take an extra 12 days off per year! If you work any extra time outside of your contracted hours, we make sure you get it back with flexitime!
We believe you should never stop learning new things and we want to ensure you have the knowledge to do your job, therefore we work with a local college to offer free NVQ's to our team members.
We work hard to make sure Fletchers is a great place to work and a place people feel they can strive. In 2016, we were named in the Sunday Times Top 100 Best Companies to Work For list.
Coming to work at a new place can be hard when you don't know anyone, so we encourage our team members to bring their friends! Recommend a friend for a vacancy and if they're successful we'll give you a bonus.
