Each June we run a week-long placement scheme for university students in our Salisbury office. The programme gives a flavour of life across the firm by rotating around our different departments.
University student scheme
Each year in June we run a work placement scheme at our offices in Salisbury for 2nd year law students or 3rd year non-law students onwards.
There are five places available on our placement and we make a contribution towards travel costs/accommodation.
Teams include wills & trusts disputes, private client, property, personal disputes and commercial.
It is a friendly and welcoming firm where I feel my contribution is valued. The senior management are very keen to listen to all the staff and actively look for ways to improve the firm. I feel there are excellent opportunities for career progression. It is an ideal firm to choose if you are seeking a healthy work – life balance and want to feel part of a team.
Sarah Secker, Senior Associate
It is something of a cliché but it's absolutely true – there are very few firms which offer such a great work-life balance. I spend my days doing complex work for interesting clients, but I get to leave the office at a sensible time to see my family. I also genuinely like every single person I work with, and I think there are few workplaces where you could say that.
Tim Fullerlove, Partner
I came to Wilsons for work experience initially whilst I was at university, and the firm was really welcoming and friendly. Everyone was very approachable and seemed genuinely interested in helping me make the most of my work experience opportunity which encouraged me to apply for a training contract. Once I had completed my training, I was keen to stay with Wilsons because I’d really enjoyed the work I’d been doing and the team I’d been working with.
