Job Description

Morton Fraser is a thriving, top ten Scottish law firm delivering clear advice to businesses, the public sector, individuals and families and our clients tell us we do things differently.

With over 260 people working with us, we provide highly rated legal services across the UK, and have links to over 160 international firms.
Our clear and straight talking approach coupled with care and attention to detail are what sets us apart. We see things in ways that others don’t and we tell it like it is.  We believe in treating others the way we expect to be treated ourselves.

We are now recruiting for  traineeships commencing in September 2019. They will be based over both our offices in Edinburgh and Glasgow.  There is also the potential for a secondment to one of our clients.  Our chosen trainees will spend six months in four different seats, offering them great access to our 12 practice areas in four divisions.

As an outstanding law firm we aim to recruit outstanding trainees to join our team.  We are therefore looking for applicants who can tick the following boxes:

• Have a consistently high academic record from school and university
• Are confident and can demonstrate a positive “can do” approach
• Share our preference for team working
• Are naturally good communicators and find it easy to establish new relationships
• Rise to the challenge of meeting deadlines and can plan their time accordingly

If you think you would fit in well with our culture, we would be delighted to hear from you.  Further details and the application form are available on the website.
