Careers with us
It doesn't matter to us whether you are a graduate, postgraduate, or coming from a different career, which university you went to, or whether you read law or not. We seek the best and recruit to retain.
Academic achievements are important: we expect at least a 2:1 University degree. But we are equally as interested in the person you are and the lawyer you can become.

We want our trainees to have understood and enjoy our distinctive, non-rotational training system, the global nature of our work and our culture.
We treat you as part of the Firm from the moment you accept a Training Contract offer with us and will stay in touch and support you through Law School until you arrive at the office on your first day as a trainee.
Before you decide to apply for a Training Contract at Jones Day, you need to consider whether our training system is right for you. That is why we ask all our trainees to experience our training system on a Placement Scheme first and why we don't invite applications for Training Contracts outside of our Placement Schemes. We accept our training may not suit everybody but the opportunities are significant for those it does. Â
Jones Day has a long history of, and commitment to, pro bono work, public service, and community involvement in all of our locations around the world. Because of that commitment, pro bono and public service matters undertaken by Jones Day are provided the same level of attention and professional dedication that we provide to matters undertaken on behalf of paying clients.
