With lockdown restrictions further lifting on 4 July, charities have a lot to think about.
In view of the COVID-19 outbreak and following the recent government advice, we have made the difficult decision to cancel the selection process for our 2020 Training Contract Vacancy and 2020 Summer Vacation Scheme both of which relate to the 2022 intake of trainees. As you can understand, the safety of our candidates, employees and community is a priority. We are fully committed to ensuring a positive candidate experience and investing in the growth of our future talent. We will continue to review the situation closely and those who wish to apply to our 2021 Training Contract Vacancy and the 2021 Vacation Scheme (both of which will relate to our 2022 and 2023 intakes) will have an opportunity to do so next year.
As a Lex 100 winner for 'quality of work', 'client contact', 'work/life balance' and 'confident of being kept on', we are a great choice if you’re looking to join a principled firm and want to take the lead on high-quality work.
We are committed to helping you develop and succeed as a trainee, and we provide the support and resources to help you achieve your potential. You’ll be allocated an appraiser at the start of your training contract, as well as a trainee manager for each seat. Your appraiser will offer support and guidance about which areas would complement your plans for the future, making sure you gain the necessary experience and skills. Our Trainee Development Programme will also provide you with bespoke training, giving you the opportunity to further enhance the knowledge and skills that we look for in our trainees and newly qualified solicitors.
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. If you are studying your LPC elsewhere, a commensurate level of funding will be available.
To apply, please visit the vacancies page.
When we asked our trainees why they chose us over other firms, they told us it was because of our excellent client care and because we “have a social conscience and are actually prepared to do something about it”. They also said they were given more hands-on experience and considerably more responsibility than their peers at other firms.
We asked what they considered to be the firm’s best features, and these are some of their responses:
It’s the chance to do high-level commercial work in one seat and publicly-funded private client work in another.
A good work/life balance.
The approachability of senior colleagues, including partners.
