at Pinsent Masons

Locations:**London, Birmingham, Manchester, Leeds, Glasgow, Edinburgh, Aberdeen**

Pinsent Masons is a full service international law firm which ranks amongst the top 75 global law firms and the top 12 of UK firms. We work with clients including FTSE 100 and AIM listed companies, government departments and public sector institutions. Pinsent Masons is the only firm to operate across all three UK jurisdictions and more recently we have been developing our overseas network of offices in the Asia-Pacific region, continental Europe and the Gulf. Our merger with McGrigors in May 2012 reflects our strategy to become a firm of truly international reach, offering world-class service and excellent value.

Pinsent Masons need exceptional individuals with drive, ability and confidence. It is not about the school or university you attended but your unique qualities as an individual and what you can bring to our organisation which will make you successful. Excellent analytical and problem-solving skills are essential, as well as the ability to develop strong working relationships with both clients and colleagues, because fundamentally, the law is about people. How you demonstrate all of this is up to you.

A training contract at Pinsent Masons represents the first stage of a focussed development programme that will enable you to reach your full potential. Our training programme has been developed in-house, which ensures you receive a balanced and comprehensive introduction to the profession.

Trainees move departments every six months. This gives you the necessary time to develop the legal and commercial depth of understanding required to take on real client-facing responsibility. During the second year of training you may also have the opportunity to undertake a secondment to either a client organisation or one of our international offices.

We are currently accepting applications for training contracts to commence in September 2015 and March 2016 via our website www.pinsentmasons.com/graduate.
