Trainee Programme

It’s an exciting, but often daunting, stage of your life when you choose the law firm where you’ll start your career as a solicitor.

Whether you’re an undergraduate, postgraduate or experienced professional undertaking a career change, placing your trust in us is a big decision and not to be made lightly.

At Steele Raymond, what sets us apart is our people.

Practicing law is tough but rewarding. Doing it in an open, supportive and friendly environment with people who you respect and enjoy working with makes all the difference.

That’s why previous trainees have said that they were ‘impressed by the friendliness in the office’ and that ‘the people’ are the best thing about our firm, a fact that has been recognised in the Lex 100 where we have awarded recognition in the following areas.

“I am often asked what makes an application for a training contract stand out. For me, the applicants who demonstrate exceptional personal achievement and have a good awareness of the firm are more likely to succeed.”

– Jennifer Rogerson, Training Principal & Partner
