Life as a trainee

You’re here to make a name for yourself. Not the tea.

As a Winckworth Sherwood trainee, every day is a challenge – in the best possible way.

From your first seat, you will be entrusted with real responsibility, and deal directly with clients. You may even manage your own files subject to suitable supervision. That’s not to say you’ll be handed more than you’re equipped to deal with. You will usually sit with a partner or senior solicitor and have access to the whole department’s expertise and support.

Personal attention

You will be given a bespoke training diary, which is reviewed regularly and there is a twice-yearly appraisal where your performance will be reviewed.

More than just legal training

Our well-established training programme means that on top of legal training you’ll get business skills training, including presentation skills, project management, networking and client development.
