Trainee Solicitors

We welcome applications from students who have completed or are in the process of taking the conversion course following a law degree as well as those who have studied law, with a strong academic background and at least a 2:1 honours degree.

We operate an Equal Opportunities policy. In considering applications we take account of academic achievements and the standard of degree likely to be obtained but also a genuine desire for a career in the profession and an interest in working and living locally. We place great importance on good interpersonal skills in the context of both the workplace and client care. We are looking for trainees who combine intellectual ability with practical common sense.

From 2023, Glanvilles Legal Services is now offering vacation schemes to prospective trainee solicitors and paralegals. Our Vacation Scheme is open to law students or non-law students who intend to undertake the conversation course. Taking part in our Vacation Scheme will provide an excellent opportunity to understand the work that we do at Glanvilles, to meet our people and gain a sense of our culture and values. It is a chance to see if Glanvilles is the right firm for you. For further information, click here. Alternatively, you can submit your interest on your Trainee Solicitor application.

What do our trainees say about Glanvilles training contracts?

Jessica Pallone - Newly Qualified Solicitor

"The most important thing in a Training Contract is having a consistent opportunity to learn. The supervisors and colleagues at Glanvilles are willing to teach, review and motivate on a regular basis, whilst also allowing us freedom to tackle obstacles ourselves. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time at Glanvilles so far and look forward to completing my Training Contract with the firm and qualifying into Dispute Resolution and Immigration."

Sophie Montgomery - Newly Qualified Solicitor

"Since starting at Glanvilles I have felt part of the team since day one and have received lots of support and guidance throughout my time here. I was given a large amount of responsibility during my Training Contract and learnt new skills every day to assist me on my journey to qualification. I thoroughly enjoyed working within a variety of seats during my training, before going on to qualify into Residential Property. Each team I worked with were incredibly supportive and I am pleased to have stayed on with Glanvilles as a Newly Qualified Solicitor.”

Sophie Daniels - Newly Qualified Solicitor

"Since beginning my training contract with Glanvilles I have been given the opportunity to interact with and learn from people at all levels. This has helped me to extensively broaden my legal knowledge and develop new skills throughout my training. Glanvilles has a supportive culture and every team that I have had the opportunity to work in so far in my training has taken a keen interest in my development.”

Ben Ward-Prowse - Future Trainee Solicitor

"I joined Glanvilles initially as a paralegal and knew straight away that it was the firm I wished to undertake my training contract with. The work is varied and no two days are the same. From day one I was given challenging drafting tasks, exposure to court and participated in different forms of alternative dispute resolution. The training I have received has been excellent and there is a fantastic team culture throughout the offices."

Courtney Leigh-Hardyman - Trainee Solicitor

"During my two-year training contract with Glanvilles, I have found immense fulfilment and growth while working across diverse sectors like private client, commercial property, and family law. Of particular value is the opportunity to tailor my training to focus on areas of personal interest within each sector. This approach has not only deepened my understanding within specific domains but also allowed me to witness the interconnectedness of different legal areas. The knowledge gained from one seat seamlessly informs and enhances the next, fostering a holistic understanding of the legal landscape. Overall, my experience at Glanvilles has been immensely beneficial, providing a robust foundation for my future legal career."
