Opportunities

As far as the eye can see

We take on just a select number of trainees. So we give them a lot of attention and expect them to play a large part from day one. If we choose you, it’s because we see qualities that make you a potential high-performing associate – possibly even a future partner.

We work in small teams too. So every role is critical. If you’re looking for early responsibility and the chance to progress on merit and personal initiative, you’re in the right place.

    I wanted to work for a firm that had an international presence, diverse practice areas, a small, close-knit trainee intake and a non-hierarchical culture. I got all that with Stephenson Harwood!

    The firm is big enough to get great exposure to important clients, but small enough to make you feel valued.

    Supervisors are always very good at providing you with a context within which to frame your thinking for a task. This really helps you to focus on understanding the bigger picture.

    It is definitely a firm where you are given a lot of responsibility as a trainee. You are encouraged to ask lots of questions if you are unsure so that you learn a lot very quickly.

    The sports teams at Stephenson Harwood are a great way to meet colleagues from different practice groups and different roles at the firm.
