Browse and Apply for the Latest Solicitor Jobs
To apply for solicitor jobs, you will typically have to be qualified as a solicitor in England and Wales. Before applying for a solicitor job, make sure to read through the job postings very carefully as law firms will typically specify the level of experience that they are looking for. This may range from newly qualified solicitors to solicitors having any number of post-qualification experience. Most law firms recruit solicitors into a certain practice area. Unlike a training contract, where you undergo different seats and working across a number of practice area, as a solicitor you will have to choose one practice area. Therefore, when browsing solicitor jobs, make sure to consider your experience as well as your interest for the practice area. Most of the job listings will give the name of the recruiting law firm or at least specify the type of law firm. It is important that you decide on the type of a law firm for which you would like to work for. There are different categories of law firms with some popular ones being US law firms, international and city law firms, regional and high street as well as boutique law firms and many others. Usually, American and international law firms tend to offer the best remuneration packages and tend to have long hours. On the contrary, regional and high street law firms offer lower remuneration but more sociable working hours. When applying for a law firm, consider the law firm culture and decide if you are a good fit. These are just some of the factors to consider when applying for solicitor jobs.
