The right person?

It matters to us that we have the right people working alongside us but, actually, there isn’t a typical Womble 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

We grow together. We achieve together.

Bond Dickinson has a 'fantastic culture' and offers trainees 'high-quality' work alongside 'fee earners who are real people'. Trainees are encouraged to 'really get involved, even from the first day' and said their work is by no means 'boring or menial'. To the contrary, trainees are given 'a lot of autonomy' and are encouraged to 'take a leading role' in matters.
