The Training Contract

Grab hold of all the responsibility you can handle. Do it at pace. Do it alongside experts. Do it to build your future. From day one, you’ll carve out your career. With exposure to global work, massive clients and big deals, there’s nothing you won’t experience.

Middle East Training Contract

We have now closed applications for our 2022 and 2023 Middle East Trainee intakes. We recommend you sign up to our database to be kept updated on new opportunities when they open.

Development and support

Our Middle East Training Contract is two years, and consists of four six-month seats in our Middle East offices. If possible you may be able to undertake one of these seats in a UK office but this is always subject to business needs. We hire one or two trainees onto the program each year.

After your Training Contract, you can apply for a position in one of our Middle East offices.

Who are we without you? You’re the specialists and we’ll give you the learning tools and guidance to help you progress to the next stage. Alongside your formal induction and year-round training, you’ll receive ongoing support from your supervisor, trainee representatives, our Human Resources and Legal Project Management departments. Your supervisor isn’t someone you meet with sporadically though, they’ll be a constant, helping you define your career and working with you to get it right. You’re more than a Trainee and we always think of the bigger picture when it comes to your career.
