When you join us, you’ll be one of just six trainees. This means you’ll get plenty of opportunities to make your mark.
We’re looking for trainees who are genuinely excited to join a smaller firm that’s driven by its values, who understand that making a positive impact is as important to us as making a profit. We offer clients you can commit to, as well as incredibly interesting work. We enable and empower you to have client contact from the very beginning of your career.
You’ll begin to experience all of the unique qualities of a career at Bates Wells from the moment you’re given your training contract. We’ll keep in touch and invite you to our social events before your first day in the office.
We aim to have all our trainees qualify into the firm, where there is plenty of opportunity to grow and progress. One-third of our partners started out as Bates Wells trainees.
