People are at the very heart of what we do and to succeed we need the most talented and motivated teams in place.Â
Our approach is really quite simple and underpinned by our values. We work hard but we also want our people to enjoy long and successful careers with us. That means making sure that everybody has the opportunity to develop and grow as well as being rewarded for their successes.
Our clients include Nissan, HSBC, Grainger, Bellway, Sainsbury's, The Post Office, New Look and Atom Bank. Whether we're working with a FTSE 100 business, a government organisation or a privately managed company, our approach is to build productive, trusting long-term relationships.
We always put ourselves in our clients' shoes and ask the right questions so that we can really understand and anticipate their needs. That's why we look for trainees who take the time to listen and who want to work for a firm where integrity and reliability matter every bit as much as insight and legal expertise.
The right person?
It matters to us that we have the right people working alongside us but, actually, there isn't a typical Bond Dickinson person. Our trainees come from diverse backgrounds and bring a range of experience - and that's important to us.
Of course, we expect everyone to share our enthusiasm for the law and to demonstrate a passion for our business. Beyond that we want to see:
A strong academic background
Commercial understanding and client focus
The ability to form lasting relationships
Our Trainee Programme
Choose us for your training contract and, over the course of two years, you'll get the chance to experience different areas of the law first hand and to work with a variety of colleagues and clients.
It's a lot of responsibility at an early stage of your career but we think that's part of what makes our training programme so appealing.
While we're pushing you outside of your comfort zone, we're providing you with all of the support you need to succeed.
You'll spend six months in four seats, gaining genuine breadth of experience along the way. It's by having access to this variety, surrounded by supportive, approachable professionals, that we can develop your skills and help you to find your niche.
Trusted to deliver
Whichever of our offices you join us in, you'll have access to high-quality work and senior client contacts. We regularly second trainees to our most high-profile clients - it's testament to the level of trust we're prepared to place in you.
We truly believe that the quality of training at Bond Dickinson is second to none. We consistently take the time to ensure that we deliver on our promises so we're delighted to have been recognised through award nominations.
We make sure that your supervisors are well trained and supported on an ongoing basis. So as well as being experts in their field, they're confident when it comes to passing on their skills and expertise. You'll also have a mentor to guide you through your first two years and beyond. They'll be able to answer all your queries and pass on the fruits of their experience - after all, it isn't long since they were in your shoes.
