Stand out from the crowd

If you are considering a career at Higgs & Sons there is an initial online application form to fill in which you can download here.

If your application is successful, we will then invite you to complete online numerical and verbal reasoning tests. We may then invite you to a ‘Be Yourself’ assessment day which comprises a group presentation/assessment together with written exercises relating to the real world of the lawyer.

Following the assessment day, we will invite shortlisted candidates to attend a panel interview with the HR team and selected partners.

Deadline for applications is 31st July each year and we recruit two years in advance.

Training Contracts for September 2018

There are still limited places available for contracts beginning September 2018.

You can use the same application form to apply for a place starting in 2018, 2019 or 2020.

The deadline for applications starting September 2018 is 28th February 2018.

If your application is successful you will be invited to our 'Be Yourself' assessment day taking place on 14th March 2018.

Along with all the other benefits of working at Top 150 law firm such as Higgs & Sons, from 2018 we will be offering financial assistance in relation to your GDL or LPC. We will also be supporting paid vacation schemes for Trainees.

Hopefully we’ve given you a taste of what it’s like to be part of the Higgs team. So now it’s your turn. Tell us:

What makes you stand out? Why you are a Higgs person.

What have you achieved? Remember, although your academic record is important, the world doesn’t begin and end in the classroom.
