All Jobs

Applicants – please apply directly to us:

Please apply in person for our vacancies and not through a recruitment agency. Agencies add significantly to our overheads by charging a high percentage of a year’s salary for an introduction (often 20%) and this can reduce the salary we are able to offer a successful candidate. Even if you are listed with an agency, please apply to us direct, even if the agency says they have been in touch with us.

Trainee Solicitors

We currently have no trainee vacancies. Due to the number of speculative applications received, we are unable to respond to them. Our next trainee recruitment round will be advertised on our website, although is unlikely to be until mid-2024.


Work experience and apprenticeships

Here at Wards Solicitors we are very keen to encourage the next generation of lawyers. We run ‘meet the lawyer’ sessions for up to six aspiring lawyers to have a face to face meeting with members of our team. These sessions are aimed at those studying in year 12 and above. Our lawyers will do a brief talk about what they do, and how they got to where they are now. You will have a tour of our offices, and have the chance to ask anything you like about working in the legal profession. Each session will run between 11am and 1 pm.
