Fitzhugh Gates is looking to recruit a trainee solicitor in Children and Family law at our Brighton office. We are looking for an enthusiastic individual with good initiative and strong interpersonal skills. An ability to work hard with attention to detail is essential.
We aim to give the trainee a sound commercial grounding by giving the successful applicant the opportunity to spend eighteen months in family/child care and 6 months in private client or property. The training contract period may be reduced for those with existing fee earning experience. Seat allocation will be decided during the training contract and is dependent upon business needs and market trends.
The successful candidate must be technically competent and academically strong with a minimum of 2:1 in a Bachelor’s degree. Ideally they will have a good grounding in family work in a fee earning and target driven capacity in private practice. Strong evidence of business acumen is needed. Completion of the Legal Practice Course is necessary.
