Training Contracts

Our main priority in recruiting trainees is for the long term. We hope for more than just a two-year contract which comes to an end with the trainee moving on; rather, our aim is that we will then have a solicitor committed to Essex and to HS Legal Solicitors.

Our recruitment process

Applications for our 2024 intake are now open.  Our next intake of trainees will be in September 2024, and the application process for those will open in January 2024.

We are seeking applications from those who have achieved a Law Degree and who will have completed their LPC by the start date, preferably achieving a commendation (or higher). 

We hope to recruit two candidates.

We keep in touch with our successful candidates during the period prior to the training contract commencement date. You can expect to receive regular updates and invitations to join us for some social functions so that we all know one another a little better when the time comes for the training contract to begin.


Our application process is now open, and applications must be submitted by email at
