How to apply

We look to recruit candidates with excellent interpersonal skills, a strong academic record and who ideally will have passed their LPC by the time their training contract commences. We find candidates with legal experience and commercial awareness attractive.

A copy of our Training Application Form can be downloaded here.  We ask our applicants to submit their application form together with their CV and a covering letter.  In your covering letter we want to know why you have selected Hughes Paddison to train with.  We tend to interview every 18 months to 2 years.

We tend to take 2 to 3 trainees with each intake, starting in September or March each year.  At any one time the company may have 4 – 6 trainees.

Any successful candidates for our Spring 2021 intake may also be considered for a paralegal role, commencing 6 months in advance of their training contract start date.

Please email any enquiries to Teresa Dalton.  Your application can be submitted by post or by email to Teresa Dalton. Applications for placements can be made forthwith with a view to interview in September 2020. The closing date for applications is 31 August 2020.  You will be contacted only if you have secured an invitation to interview which will take place in September 2020. 

If you submit your application by post, the envelope should be addressed to Teresa Dalton and marked private and confidential.
