Each year, we recruit exceptional talent from a range of disciplines to help us continue to provide a personal, innovative, and high-quality service for our clients. The expertise of our partners and lawyers, combined with our collaborative approach and award-winning training and wellbeing programmes, makes the firm an exciting place to begin your legal career.
We hope the trainee solicitors we recruit will continue to develop with us and go on to become our future partners. A training contract with Penningtons Manches Cooper will offer you the opportunity to grow into a knowledgeable and confident lawyer whose career will thrive, helping us to maintain our standards of excellence and making an individual contribution that will drive us further as a firm.
We welcome applications from all degree disciplines and from applicants at all stages of their careers – we see the value people can bring when they have gained relevant experience in other roles. In addition to our vacation scheme and trainee solicitor programme, we offer work experience placements that aim to provide support and guidance to students from a variety of backgrounds.
Below are details of our events and where you can meet us on campus from October 2023. Join us there and speak to trainees, partners and the early careers team to find out why the firm is a great place to start your career.
