Mishcon de Reya to hire two legal apprentices
14 August 2014
Leading law firm Mishcon de Reya is to take on two legal
apprentices for its London office. The apprentices will follow the
Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship in
Legal Services, one working with the Real Estate team and one
with the Private department, specialising in contentious
work. The apprentices will swap teams in the course of their
training, to get exposure to both areas of work.
Mishcon de Reya was the highest ranking law firm in the Times
Top 100 companies to work for in 2014. The firm sees the
apprenticeship initiative as an opportunity to increase the
diversity of its future pool of lawyers.
The recruitment of the two apprentices will be a pilot, which,
if successful, may be extended across all departments.
Vanessa Dewhurst, Director of Human Resources at Mishcon de
Reya, said: “We see our apprenticeship scheme as an excellent way
of recruiting and training talented and ambitious individuals, and
are keen to interview people who may not previously have considered
applying to join us.
We are particularly interested in hearing from individuals who
received their A-Level results this week, and who may view this
opportunity as an alternative to university".
The apprenticeship training will be delivered by CILEx Law
Jenny Pelling, Business Director at CILEx Law School, said:
“School leavers around London who received their A Level results
today should take note of this. Legal apprenticeships at
Mishcon are an outstanding opportunity, and we’re looking forward
to supporting the firm and the apprentices throughout the
