Options for qualifying as a solicitor have recently increased, but we believe that a training contract with Endeavour offers the best possible start to your legal career, delivering much more than simply meeting the criteria for qualification.
As a trainee at Endeavour, you will be an integral part of our team. You will have the opportunity to gain experience with both routine and highly complex matters, working alongside experienced colleagues and learning from solicitors with outstanding reputations. You can expect client contact and responsibility to feature significantly in your training.
You will spend time in each of our specialist teams – Corporate and Commercial, Commercial Property, Employment and Litigation, and Insolvency.
Day to day support and supervision is offered by partners and other colleagues. You will also participate in regular reviews with your head of the department, enabling you to discuss and evaluate your progress and plan the next stages of your development.
Our trainees join us from a variety of backgrounds and with differing levels of legal experience. With this in mind, the tasks and responsibilities we give you will vary according to your capability at any given time, to ensure your training contract is as fulfilling and rewarding as possible.
There is usually the flexibility to structure the final stages of the training contract in order to give you additional experience in the specialism you wish to pursue upon qualification. We offer excellent prospects for retention and subsequent progression.
