We are interested in candidates who are energetic and ambitious. We are looking for clear communicators who display commerciality and integrity. We require our trainees to demonstrate more than academic success and to be self starters.

We believe that Clarion offers a fantastic opportunity to trainee solicitors in a friendly, team based environment. You will be involved in client matters from the beginning but will receive support and guidance from a partner or senior solicitor throughout your whole training contract.
Formal end of seat reviews, together with informal mid-seat appraisals, enable you to gain valuable feedback on your performance together with direction on future seat allocation and personal and professional development.

We believe that to be involved in Clarion is to be at the heart of one of the most exciting projects the legal profession can offer. We are looking for trainee solicitors who will share that belief and work with us over the long term to realise the immense potential of the firm.
