The Firm

During your training contract at Fieldfisher, you will work on real work with real clients. Over the two years, you will complete four seats each six-months in length, from a diverse range of departments from Real Estate to Personal Injury to Finance to Technology. We do not have any compulsory seats but we do encourage trainees to experience the departments that make the firm who we are today.  You will also have the chance to be seconded to a number of our clients on exciting project work, or to our Silicon Valley office.

In every seat, you can look forward to working with a supervisor who will be a Senior Associate, Director or Partner with a huge amount of legal experience.  It’s their job to make sure you get the best experience in every seat, by providing you with a variety of client work and being on hand to offer all the support and guidance you need.

You’ll also be assigned a “buddy” - a Newly Qualified Solicitor (NQ) who will have been in your position not long ago. They’re there to answer all your questions – so don’t feel shy – they’ll know exactly how you’re feeling.

If that isn’t enough, your dedicated Early Careers Team will be on hand to support you through your training contract journey.

Selection process:

  1. Application form
  2. Online assessment 
  3. Phone interview
  4. Virtual assessment centre
  5. Partner interview

We’ve designed our application process to be rigorous, yet fair. It’s with that in mind, that we have introduced a new, slim lined application form that ensures all applicants interested in pursuing a career with Fieldfisher are assessed equally. The application is made up of two parts:

Part 1: complete and upload the Word copy of the CV template that can be found on our website. There is a guide to accompany this, should you need any guidance.

Part 2: answer the four motivational questions

If you have any queries or questions relating to the recruitment process please contact the Early Careers Team.

Applications will close at midnight on Friday 28 May 2021. We review applications on a rolling basis so would encourage an early submission if possible. 

Fieldfisher aims to ensure equality of opportunity and we are actively working towards improving the diversity of our staff.  All applications will only be considered on merit and the applicant's suitability to meet the requirements of the role.
