Graduate Recruitment

Helping you reach new heights.

Graduate Recruitment


Two things define Travers Smith: outstanding client service and our inclusive, supportive culture.

Our clients know that we treat their business as our business, their dispute as our dispute, their challenges as ours. They know that wherever in the world their ambitions lie, we will work as part of their team to get things done. And they know that we do so in a straight-talking, open way. Clients can expect this service thanks to our independence: we are a true partnership free from outside influence, where every voice is heard. It helps that every single one of our lawyers is hugely driven - excellence is expected across the board. That excellence comes from our success in recruiting, retaining and promoting high-performing, exceptional lawyers.

Travers Smith is a collaborative and inclusive firm where the most talented people, from diverse backgrounds, can feel at home, enjoy working, and prosper. This goes beyond just ticking a box: we want everyone to be themselves here and we recognise that celebrating our differences helps make the firm a special place to work.

We are recruiting 40 trainees this year and we are looking for candidates from all backgrounds who have the potential and drive to pursue a career in law. In turn, we will provide ample opportunities for learning and growth and give you the support you need. If you want to be intellectually stretched and join, learn from and contribute to a firm that will support and celebrate you, we look forward to hearing from you.

We are looking for people who take their work, but not themselves, too seriously – our partners of the future.
