“My training contract with PwC has been great so far! I’ve gained experience with our market‑leading Tax Disputes team, and experience with our integrated Real Estate team. I’m also very excited to begin my six-month secondment to our Dubai office in the Middle East starting in September. My career at PwC is exciting and diverse – there are so many opportunities and experiences to be involved in that it’s almost impossible to get bored!”

Summer vacation scheme

To get a training contract with us, you’ll need to complete our summer vacation scheme. The three-week schemes for students run in June and July and will help you decide whether a career with us is right for you. You’ll rotate across three different practice groups, carry out research, draft legal documents and attend client meetings. Do well and you’ll be offered a training contract with us – the start date will be flexible where possible.

Starting out in your chosen career will be exciting, stretching and challenging. But the rewards are well worth it. If you’re ready to invest plenty of effort, commitment, flexibility and passion, we’re ready to give you our full support and invest in your future. If you’re working towards a professional qualification you’ll have time off to study, and once you’ve finished the training contract, we’ll carry on helping you develop your career with us. All routes offer you the opportunity to grow as an individual, to meet new people, and build lasting relationships that will stay with you for life. In return we need people who are resilient, willing to work hard, quick to learn, and who, above all, are passionate about going the extra mile to help our clients.

 

Our three-week paid Summer Vacation Scheme is a great way to find out how we work.

As a trainee solicitor, you’ll enjoy exposure to client work and the chance to take on early responsibility.

You’ll have the opportunity to develop your skills across a wide range of our practice groups.

Our training contract is divided into four six month seats.
