Developing talent is a core value of Cleaver Fulton Rankin. People are the backbone of our firm and the service we provide to our clients. We invest in a broad range of development opportunities, for all employees no matter what their role, from specialist practice training for our solicitors to softer business skills for our support team.
Solicitor Trainee Programme –Developing talented legal graduates
The firm presently has 8 Trainees, 4 due to qualify in 2018 and 4 due to qualify in 2019.
At Cleaver Fulton Rankin each trainee is provided with the opportunity to spend a period of 6 months in each of four different department seats. A general induction programme takes place at the beginning of September for each new intake of Trainees and this will be followed up by departmental induction as each Trainee joins a new department.
From day one trainees are exposed to some of the most challenging and interesting commercial legal work and given the opportunity to handle cases, see clients and carry out many of the responsibilities of a solicitor. This fantastic exposure to learning whilst working alongside experienced professionals ensures that our trainees develop the knowledge, skills and behaviours to become great lawyers.
As training progresses and through regular reviews our trainees begin to identify their own personal career path within the company and are encouraged to challenge themselves to develop a reputation as a specialist in their chosen area of law.
The Solicitor Trainee Programme is currently closed and will reopen in 2018.
Summer Placement Scheme
The Scheme is intended for undergraduates who are in their penultimate year study of a law degree or graduates in other disciplines who are doing professional legal conversion courses.
