Leading Kent law firm starts search for star solicitors of the future

7th June 2018

Aspiring graduates are being offered an exciting opportunity to take their first step into a career within the legal sector. Applications are now open for leading south east law firm Furley Page's highly regarded Trainee Solicitor programme.

Furley Page takes on two trainee solicitors in September each year and the firm is currently recruiting for the next intake who will start their training in September 2020. Applications must be received by 13 July 2018, with shortlisted candidates interviewed during the week commencing 23 July.

George Crofton-Martin, Training Partner at Furley Page, said: "We know Trainee Solicitors are the future of law firms, which is why we have invested the time to develop a training programme that is highly regarded by all our Trainees.

"We give our Trainee Solicitors real responsibility by allowing them direct contact with our clients and a varied programme that takes in many different areas of the law. Successful applicants will be working with friendly, commercially-driven professionals who will support them throughout their training programme.

"We aspire to hire the very best candidates, who will hopefully go on to contribute to the continued success of the firm in the future. For that reason, a strong academic background is essential with a minimum classification of a 2:1 degree. In addition, candidates will need strong inter-personal skills, be commercially aware and ideally have previous work experience where these skills have been utilised."

Furley Page is consistently ranked among the top four of Kent’s best-performing law firms, based on the latest results from independent national legal guides Chambers UK and The Legal 500. The firm is accredited by Investors in People.

A typical training contract comprises four "seats" (areas of the law) being 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.

Trainee Solicitors will generally spend six months in each seat with a training supervisor, during which they will gain a wide range of experience and develop their professional skills, laying the foundation for a successful future career in law.
