Our Training Contracts

We are looking to recruit a Trainee for each of our offices in Harrogate, London and Newcastle for our September 2020 intake and in London, Manchester and Newcastle for September 2021 intake.

When we recruit a Trainee, we are looking for talented, hardworking graduates who thrive in a highly challenging, yet rewarding and friendly environment. If you undertake a Training Contract at Hempsons it is our aspiration that you will remain with the firm upon qualification. We encourage all Trainees to demonstrate a strong intellectual ability, to take early responsibility, to meet a steep learning curve and to play an active part in any team to which you are allocated.

Whilst training with Hempsons, you will be expected to play an active part as a team member, learning from all members of the team in which you are allocated and become familiar with their different working methods, working on live and challenging matters, attending in-house lectures, assisting at client seminars and generally acting as a full and effective member of the team. You will rotate your seat four times across Hempsons’ full service offering, thus gaining exposure to as wide a range of experience as possible. Over the course of your training contract you will develop an understanding of how Hempsons blends experience, skill and commitment with effective management and staff development systems, which allow us to deliver an impressive level of service to our clients.
