Michelmores Graduate Trainee Development Programme
Start Date: September 2023 or September 2024
Who are we?
At Michelmores we put our clients at the heart of everything we do. We advise clients on a broad range of legal matters across the UK and internationally. With offices in Exeter, Bristol and London we are well placed to work with a diverse range of clients, with a specific focus on Finance and Investment, Private Wealth and Real Estate.
Trainees join our Exeter Headquarters and undertake a seat in our Bristol or London offices. We offer a diverse range of seats, which gives you the opportunity to gain a real breadth and depth of work during your training contract, meaning you do not feel pressured to select an area of specialism too early in your career.
Successful candidates will join our established two-year Trainee Development Programme, which focuses on the building technical and business skills that are fundamental for you to become a successful solicitor.
What will you be doing?
Over the two years you will undertake four seats of six months. In each seat you will be allocated a supervisor who will support, encourage and supervise you during your seat with them. You will also have access to a ‘buddy’ during the lead up to joining the Firm and regular interaction with our Trainee Mentors once you are here.
Our trainees are given a high level of responsibility and client contact from day one. You will be running your own files, working in a team on bigger transactions and experiencing client contact on the phone, in meetings and at networking events. As the only trainee in each team, you will experience a varied workload with the opportunity to work alongside and learn from a number of our talented partners and lawyers.
At Michelmores we recruit to retain and view our trainees as our future Associates and Partners. Our commitment to your long-term success means we invest heavily in our training. As well as attending a thorough induction programme with the wider trainee cohort, you will receive training on a full array of technical and soft skills, including financial and business awareness, communication and people skills and marketing and networking. Once your training contract is complete, you will continue to have access to bespoke development programmes and opportunities at every stage of your career.

A tailor-made personal development programme aligned to your specific skill set.
Coaching, buddy and mentor scheme with full support on a one-to-one basis.
