This is an important collaboration with CILEx Law School to further develop routes into the legal profession.
The firm has partnered with the CILEx Law School to offer this opportunity, with the successful candidate starting in January 2019.
Over the two-year Paralegal Apprenticeship programme, the apprentice will gain a solid foundation for working in a law firm and develop the appropriate skills and knowledge needed for a successful career in law.
This will include hands-on training whilst studying towards a recognised qualification, the CILEx Level 3 Certificate in Law and Practice.
The apprentice will work within the firm’s Employment team, supporting partners and fee earners to contribute to the overall success of the team and the firm.
The appointment of an apprentice comes at an exciting time for Thomson Snell & Passmore as it prepares for its 450th anniversary and a major office move in Tunbridge Wells, which will consolidate its existing three offices.
