As a growing firm, we have a wealth of opportunities available for the right people. Due to our success, we are able to offer twelve training contracts within a rolling programme. We take recruitment seriously, and once we find the right people, we invest in them.
We’re unique in terms of our approach to offering training contracts – we only offer them to internal applicants. Initially, you’ll join us in a paralegal role, but with hard work and dedication to the firm, you have a good chance of quickly being awarded a training contract.
The majority of our trainees qualify within 18 months. During that time, we want you to gain as much experience as possible while undertaking your training contract with the firm. You’ll gain invaluable experience of working as part of a highly motivated and experienced team. You'll have the opportunity to speak to barristers, run your own cases to court and gain experience in multiple seats.
During your time with Winns, you’ll have graduate opportunities that can include working in our Costs, Clerks and Trials Teams.
Trainee Solicitor Lee has recently been accepted on to a training contract with the firm, along with colleagues Alex and Krysta.
Lee said: “Working for Winns has given me the opportunity to gain practical experience as a Legal Clerk that most solicitors in other firms would not have the chance to achieve. I have been privileged to have worked with some of the best solicitors and counsel in the PI industry. Winns are almost unique in that they only offer training contracts to in-house graduates and for these reasons, I could not imagine qualifying anywhere else.”
