Training Contracts
at Simmons & Simmons

The firm offers around 40 training contracts each year and we are currently recruiting for the September 2015 and March 2016 intakes.

Our six month seat system enables you to gain hands on experience in four different areas of the business, working with other lawyers, gaining knowledge in different service areas and dealing with our important clients. Trainees sit with either a partner or a lawyer and you will quickly find yourself at the centre of the action and that your legal and overall professional skills are growing daily.

Our training programme is constantly evolving to build the skills you will need to be successful in the fast moving world of international business. We provide experience in a range of areas of law, and a balanced approach to gaining the knowledge, expertise and abilities you will need to qualify in the practice area of your choice.

We are looking for ambitious, focused individuals with law or non-law degrees and look for a strong track record of achievements from our candidates (minimum 2:1). We are interested in finding out about your academic successes but we will also explore your ability to form excellent interpersonal relations and work within a team environment, as well as your levels of motivation, drive and ambition.

Show evidence of a rich 'life experience' as well as examples of your intellectual capabilities and you will be provided with everything you need to become a successful member of the firm.
