Law firm set to grow its team with new trainees
07 Feb 2019

A leading Shropshire law firm, nationally recognised as being one of the best places to work in the UK, is on the look-out for new talent.

FBC Manby Bowdler has three vacancies for training contracts due to start in September 2020.

Commercial litigation and training Partner Charlotte Clode said: “This is a fantastic opportunity for anyone who is considering a career in law to join a really progressive, multi-award winning legal team.

“From the day our trainees join us they are very much considered a part of FBC Manby Bowdler and we encourage them to get involved with networking opportunities, social events and take a proactive approach to the business.”

The firm has a 2* accreditation from in the ‘Best Companies to work for’ scheme – the creators of the Sunday Times Best Place to Work list – joining the lists of other 2* organisations including McDonalds and Kuoni Travel.

It has offices in Telford, Shrewsbury, Bridgnorth, Church Stretton, Wolverhampton, Birmingham, Redditch and Willenhall.

Charlotte added: “We recruit from all backgrounds, both individuals who have studied law but also those who haven’t. Our training contracts are also suitable for people who may be interested in a complete change of career.

“We already have a number of solicitors working with us who joined following a career change. In fact, one of our partners used to manage a large national department store before making the move into law.”

Last year FBC Manby Bowdler was awarded top rankings for several of its teams and lawyers by the 2019 Chambers Guide. Five of its partners were also named as Leading individuals in the 2018 edition of The Legal 500, with a further four making the list of up and coming Next Generation solicitors.

The closing date for applications is April 30. For further information about the training contracts and how to apply click here.
