Who we’re looking for

There’s no typical trainee solicitor at Dentons. The expertise within our Firm is as diverse as the needs of our global clients – and we want to keep it that way. We look for people with a wide range of skills, aptitudes and personalities, with the potential to contribute to our growing success.

Our clients want to work with well-rounded individuals who have hobbies and interests away from work, so think about what makes you stand out from the crowd. Being enthusiastic about tackling all tasks, both big and small, is essential, as is having the drive and ambition to succeed in a highly demanding work environment. As a Dentons trainee, you’ll need to be able to manage a varied workload, whilst maintaining an appreciation of the intricacies, all of which provide the foundations of exceptional client service.

We accept vacation scheme and training contract applications from penultimate-year law students, final-year law and non-law students and those who have completed their undergraduate law or non-law degree. You must have, or expect to achieve, at least a 2:1 degree (or equivalent) and ideally we like to see ABB at “A” level.
