About our traineeships
Our goal is to have the right staff with the right skills to ensure we have superb people to advise and support clients. We are committed to investing in our people and believe in helping our staff succeed. Our Managing Partner, Alasdair Cummings, was himself a trainee with the firm.
A Lindsays trainee will have the opportunity to work across three different areas of law and, as they progress through their traineeship, will have direct contact with clients and hands on involvement with projects and transactions.
Iona Kelly, our HR Director commented: “During their two-year traineeship our trainees will gain experience of working in different departments and will be equipped with the right skills to develop their careers as lawyers.
“Our trainees will develop many other skills. They will learn how to deal with people who may be going through a very stressful situation and need guidance and practical support; how to work as a team member and communicate effectively with colleagues; know when to seek advice from someone more experienced; and understand the importance of building up a network of contacts.”
Trainees tell us that one of the aspects of life at Lindsays they especially appreciate is the office culture – where people make the effort to get to know each other. There is plenty of opportunity to get to know colleagues through various social events organised by our Social Committee and, to give our trainees a head start, on their first day they are sent off for lunch with the second year trainees. We offer our trainees a competitive salary and excellent working conditions. We believe strongly in the value of work/life balance for employees at all stages of their career and their life. We want our trainees to enjoy the social events we organise ourselves as well as enjoying their own life outside the office.
Lindsays is an equal opportunities employer and positively encourages applications from suitably qualified and eligible candidates regardless of sex, race, disability, age, sexual orientation, religion or belief.
