When recruiting, we look for bright people who understand that we are running a business which succeeds because:

  • we meet clients' needs and exceed their expectations;
  • we operate efficiently;
  • we recognise the contribution everyone makes; and
  • we respect the diversity of skills offered by our colleagues.  



We are looking for an associate to join our Technology and Data Team, which advises government departments, emergency services, local authorities and corporate clients. The role will be a mixture of transactional and advisory work.

The successful candidate will be a solicitor with a background in public procurement law and contract law, with particular expertise in technology contracts. Experience in advising public sector clients and on data protection matters is desirable but not an essential requirement. You will be expected to provide clear, sensible, client-focussed advice and to have a track record of handling technical issues and negotiations on commercial matters. Excellent communication skills are vital. You will be given a good level of responsibility from the outset and will be expected to participate in marketing and training.

We offer a friendly working environment in newly refurbished offices in Clerkenwell.

If you are interested please email to request an application form.

Closing date: 7 December 2018


The application period for training contracts starting in August 2020 has now expired. The application period for August 2021 contracts will open in late Spring 2019.
