Training opportunities

Ince Gordon Dadds sees things differently with around 70% of our partners having trained with us. We not only regard our trainees as future solicitors and potential partners, but our training programme is different too. With us you’ll get involved in real legal work from day one, with flexibility to work across different departments and retain a portion of your cases as you progress through your training.

Vacation scheme

Running during the Easter and summer period, our two-week trainee recruitment placement scheme (TRPS) gives you a practical insight into life as an Ince Gordon Dadds trainee. We welcome a maximum of five people on the TRPS at any one time so that we can give you all the support you need. You will also work on real cases, which may involve attending court and hearings, meeting clients, drafting correspondence or doing legal research.

Other benefits

Season ticket loan; corporate health cover; private health insurance; contributory pension scheme; fitness subsidy and 25 days holiday.
