"Meet us in person, it's the best way to learn about your Training Contract"
Graduate Recruitment Manager
We think the best way for you to find out about training at Shoosmiths is to meet us face to face.
We will be attending various Law careers fairs in Winter 2018 so keep an eye out for updates of where we will be exhibiting. We also deliver employer presentations in educational establishments so if you would like us to attend an employer presentation or skills event at your University, College or School, please email [email protected].
We hold a number of insight evenings so that you can gain an insight into working as a solicitor at Shoosmiths. This opportunity is open to candidates who are either currently at university or have graduated, in any degree discipline. The online application form for insight evenings has now closed; however you can apply for our 2020 insight evenings from September 2019. The dates of our insight evenings will be advertised on our website, Facebook page and Twitter.
Keep an eye on our list below for updates on events near you.
