How to apply
There are two routes through which you can apply for a training contract at Anthony Collins Solicitors. Candidates can either apply to attend a two-week assessment - our vacation scheme - or to attend a one-day assessment centre. The two-week vacation scheme gives you an opportunity to understand the work that we do and meet the people who do it. We appreciate that not everyone can attend for two weeks and therefore you also have the option to apply for our one-day assessment centre. In order to apply for either of these routes, please click here.
If your application is successful, you’ll be invited to take part in a psychometric assessment, an interview and assessment centre.
Anthony Collins Solicitors will provide funding for the LPC fees to those who are joining us as trainees and currently or about to commence their LPC studies at the University of Law.
We will be recruiting for 2022 and 2023 in our next round of recruitment, and you will be able to apply between 2 November 2020 and 31 July 2021.
