Training Contracts and Apprenticeships


Training Contracts

We’re currently not accepting applications for Training Contracts. Further information will be made available on this page when the application window opens. To be notified when this recruitment opens, please sign up for alerts on the careers page of our website by clicking here.

Training contracts at Lyons Davidson are usually arranged into four six-month seats. Our training contracts are predominantly Bristol-based but some seats may be in our other office locations: Cardiff, Leeds or Solihull. Most trainees will spend six months in a personal injury or civil litigation seat.

During each seat, trainees have full access to their supervisor – an experienced Partner or Associate – who is there to guide learning through day-to-day delegation of tasks, accompanied with research and project work.  Performance is continuously reviewed through personal reflection and formal appraisals. Trainees also have the opportunity to be involved in different projects and working parties during their training contract to enhance their skillset and learn more about our business.

Apprenticeship opportunities

Apprenticeships provide a vocational qualification while working and, over the last few years, we’ve offered a number of apprenticeship opportunities, both legal and support based, which have been a great success.

Please see our vacancies page for details of any current apprenticeship opportunities or sign up to receive job alerts for future vacancies.
