Legal Apprenticeship (PIN052)

Added 11 days ago

  We are one of the country’s leading consumer law firms and have recently been acquired by an affiliate of Sun European Partners LLP, whose focus is on growing our already successful business considerably in the next few years.

As we gear up for growth, we are adding to our already successful team to start our new financial year strongly. We are looking for the right person to be part of a growing/thriving team.

If you have a passion for all things legal and are  looking for your first step in a legal career  then this could be the role for you!

In return Fletchers can offer:

  • A competitive salary based on your experience
  • A bonus scheme paid yearly (subject to targets being met)
  • Pension scheme with tax-efficient salary sacrifice option
  • 35 days holiday a year including bank holidays from start – and we close for the Christmas break and there is an option to purchase up to 3 extra days’ holiday per year. There are also 3 days’ additional holiday for long service (awarded in the 5th, 7th and 9th full year of employment)
  • Enhanced company sick pay scheme
  • Flexible, agile working environment with a positive work-life balance
  • Varied calendar of funded company social events
  • Monthly voucher awards
  • Development opportunities.
  • Fully supported throughout the apprenticeship

The six-year Solicitor Apprenticeship, in partnership with The University of Law (ULaw), aims to give aspiring young trainees, who may have found the financial cost of a traditional university route a deterrent, the opportunity to have a successful career in law.

The scheme will allow trainees to gain hands on experience in the legal environment, whilst completing an undergraduate degree (LLB, Hons), and a Solicitor Qualifying Exam Legal Practice Course (SQE) at ULaw, include SQE1 and SQE2 as well as a period of recognised training. By the end of the 6 years you will be a qualified solicitor.

The scheme enables you to qualify whilst earning a salary, meaning you don’t have to pay for tuition fees and can, instead, earn whilst you learn.

You will be based in our Southport office employed to work 4 days a week, being a combination of working from home and in the office, with 1 day being dedicated to study. You will gain experience in our Customer Contact Team before moving into Medical Negligence Serious Injury to build your legal knowledge, whilst training to become a qualified Solicitor.

8 GCSE grades *A to C  Maths and English.
