One of Kent’s leading law firms is offering ambitious graduates the chance to kick-start their legal careers. Furley Page is now accepting applications for its highly-regarded Trainee Solicitor programme and successful applicants will start their training in September 2021.
Furley Page is consistently ranked as one of Kent’s top-performing law firms in national legal guides The Legal 500, Chambers UK and Chambers High Net Worth.
George Crofton-Martin, Training Partner at Furley Page, said: ” We have developed a highly-respected training programme that helps Furley Page attract the brightest, most talented graduates. With excellent opportunities for career progression, many of our trainees go on to make an important contribution to the firm for many years.
“Our trainee solicitor programme provides graduates with a fantastic start to their legal career by giving them real responsibility, direct access to clients, and the chance to sample many different aspects of the law.”
First year Trainee Solicitor, Kirsty Morrison, commented: “Furley Page takes a very hands-on approach with trainees and I have been given a surprising level of responsibility. As a trainee, you are genuinely involved in crucial client work. I have also found all staff to be approachable and willing to provide me with real work, while openly assisting with my many queries!”
Ellie Boreham, who is currently in her second training year with the firm, said: “There is a perception that trainees will only ever undertake low level tasks, with little or no support, but this has not been my experience. I have really enjoyed my training and I have felt challenged, supported and trusted throughout. I have grown in confidence and am very excited about qualifying in September.”
A typical training contract comprises four practice areas offered over a two-year training period in various teams including Corporate and Commercial; Dispute Resolution; Employment Law; Real Estate; Private Client, Trusts and Estates; Elderly and Vulnerable Client; Family Law and Personal Injury.
Applications for the 2021 intake must be received by Friday 12 July 2019, with shortlisted candidates interviewed during the week commencing 24 July.
