COVID-19 Update

FBC Manby Bowdler is a business committed to the training and development of its staff. At the heart of that has been its recruitment, at grass roots level, of those who wish to qualify as solicitors. We currently employ approx.. 18 people on a formal training route as an Apprentice, with CILEx or under the guidance of the SRA. We commit much resource – human, technological and financial, to the qualification of those individuals. We do not recruit on to our training programmes unless we have the capacity to commit the required resource.

Train with Us

The legal industry, along with the country as a whole, has had an incredibly difficult twelve months. We do see a light at the end of the tunnel but aren’t quite in a position to commit to our usual investment in training and development.

As a result of that, we will not be recruiting for trainee solicitors in 2021. Instead, our recruitment needs will be reviewed again in early 2022 by which time we hope the world will largely have returned to normal, sufficient to enable this firm to re-establish its entry level training programmes in which we place so much value.

Become an Apprentice

We currently have vacancies for an Apprentice Solicitor & Apprentice Paralegal.

You can apply for either of these roles here Deadline for applications is 30 April 2021.
