Since its inception in July 2012, the team at Accutrainee has been establishing close relationships with universities and training providers to get access to the best young legal talent in the UK. We have amassed a large database of candidates at the early stages of their legal careers. Using our unique and robust selection process we have built a fantastic bench of quality junior legal resources that includes paralegals, trainee solicitors as well as qualified lawyers.
Finding good junior legal resources can be time consuming and costly. Our unique approach allows clients to partner with us and solve the key problems associated with finding the perfect legal talent. Here are some of the benefits:
Our Accutrainee brand works with people on their journey to qualification and with clients who are keen to give back and help develop our next generation of lawyers, either because it simply feels good to give someone a leg up or because they want to build up their team and train people who really get to know their business. The beauty of our training contract model is that clients don’t need to give the qualification process, training programmes or regulatory requirements a second thought, all of that is dealt with by us. All you get is a committed, super eager and engaged junior resource ready to help you and your team when you need it and they benefit from great experience and taking one step closer to qualification.
Our Accuflex brand works with all lawyers ranging from paralegals looking for their very first legal role to qualified specialist with up to 5 years’ post qualification experience.

What we do
During the last 10 years we have amassed unparalleled expertise in identifying excellent quality junior resources. We understand that to maintain strong relationships with our clients, it’s vital that we deliver on quality. We spend considerable time screening candidates thoroughly to ensure we understand their skills, competencies, drive and attributes so that we can properly match candidates to the opportunity in question. Given the size of our database as well as our growing alumni, we are able to provide people for all of your junior resource requirements enabling you to meet both yours or your clients’ business needs.
We are very proud to be the only provider in the market that can also offer flexible trainee solicitors following the innovative business model we introduced to the legal market nearly 10 years ago now. This not only helps you grow and develop your team but the flexibility we provide ensures your team is always properly leveraged and utilised.
Whatever your need, we are confident that we will be able to source quality, reliable resources for you quickly, efficiently and cost effectively.
How it works
Engaging with us could not be simpler. You tell us what you want, we will provide you with a range of options to meet those needs within a short timeframe. Building a relationship with us will mean we can support you with longer term resourcing goals supplying exactly the right resource, when and where you need it while ensuring continuity of skills and experience. This includes training junior resources (who may be known to you and have worked with you as a paralegal) to qualify as solicitors via our training programme, giving an unmatched legal resourcing partner in today’s market.
When we founded Accutrainee, the intention was to open up opportunities for trainees where they might not otherwise exist, so we always knew we had to be competitive. The need to deliver value for money for our clients is still incredibly important to us. For example, our rates for a junior paralegal in London start at just £165 per day.
Our goal is to be your partner in law in managing all your junior resourcing needs. If you feel we can be of any assistance, please don’t hesitate to contact us.
