Apprenticeships at Parker Bullen
There are many different paths into your chosen career and having a future in the law is no exception.
As an employer, we look to recruit our employees based on merit, work experience and work ethic, not purely on qualifications. We are passionate about offering our team members the career development while on the job, which is why apprenticeships are an ideal way to start your career with Parker Bullen.
Why Parker Bullen?
As an established law firm in Hampshire and Wiltshire, we have been working with local businesses, individuals and families for over 200 years. Our reputation in Andover and Salisbury is well known and we are enjoying a growing presence in Romsey after opening in 2021. In 2022, we also opened a new office in the picturesque town of Witney. We continue to review our current services and office locations to maximise any opportunities that may arise in the future, and encourage our employees to bring forward their ideas.
As an apprentice at Parker Bullen, you would not only be a part of this growing firm, but also benefit from our extensive Employee Benefits Package, varied social activities, a supportive working environment and extensive Learning and Development Programme to support your future career aspirations.
Why an Apprenticeship?
You may have been considering a career in the law but do not wish to follow the University route, preferring practical, hands on experience.
An apprenticeship is the perfect opportunity for you to learn the qualifications required to pursue this career path, while providing you with real life experience of working in a law firm, earning a living while learning on the job. You will be able to put the theory into practice, learn from your peers and gain a unique insight into the day to day operations of a law firm including the administration and marketing functions.
We can currently offer a Paralegal Apprenticeship that will result in a Level 3 Apprenticeship qualification over a period of 21 months with an expected intake of September 2023.
Under this apprenticeship, you will be required to spend a minimum of 20% of your working week on the apprenticeship with the remaining time period working in one of our four offices. The department you work in will be determined by the needs of the firm at the time, however any preference you have will be taken into consideration.
We are also reviewing other apprenticeship opportunities across the firm, including in our IT, Marketing and Accounts departments.
