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.

Development and support

Our Middle East Training Contract is two years, and consists of two six-month seats in our London Office, and two seats in one of our Middle East offices.

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.
