Accutrainee delivers a unique, flexible and efficient way for firms to manage their trainee requirements and graduates to benefit from bespoke training contracts


We’ve introduced an innovative concept into a traditional industry. And we’ve been recognised for it: we’ve been shortlisted in The Lawyer Business Leadership Awards for the most innovative collaboration with an in-house legal team. We’re also nominated for a “Best Trainer” award at this year’s LawCareers.Net Training & Recruitment Awards (TARAs).

Market Experience

Clients and graduates alike benefit from the huge wealth of experience we have as solicitors, specialist recruiters and business managers. We’ve got practical, hands on experience of the issues you face and the capability to help you make commercially sustainable decisions.


The quality assurance we give to you is key. At the heart of everything we do is a commitment to finding quality candidates with the potential to be exceptional solicitors. We’ve developed a rigorous assessment programme which tests core competencies and skills as well as personal aptitudes and ambition. The result: exceptional quality candidates.


Traditional training contracts offer little or no flexibility to both legal service providers and to graduates. Our approach means that clients utilise and pay for trainees only when they are needed, saving money and enabling them to be more efficient. Graduates can apply to us at any time of the year, have less lead in time to starting their training and have the opportunity to more at multiple organisations.

Case studies

Founder’s statement

Accutrainee took on its first trainee in July 2012. I was nervous about introducing a new concept into a traditional industry, but it’s one that I strongly believe in. I really wanted to create opportunities for graduates in a market where it seemed increasingly hard to do so. I also wanted to give legal service providers an easier and more efficient way to use trainees.

My priority from the start has been to get the best quality candidates – without that, we wouldn’t have a business. I’m lucky to have a great team and advisory board working with me, and we’ve devised an assessment programme which I believe (and which our clients have confirmed through candidate feedback) is exceptional. Through this we’ve helping promote diversity in the workplace – our programme is based on testing core competencies and skills as well as personal aptitudes and ambition, NOT just on how someone may look on paper.

We Won!

We are absolutely thrilled to have been announced as the winner of The Lawyer Business Leadership award for ‘Most innovative collaboration with in-house legal teams’.

Accutrainee was described as a company specifically set up to revolutionise the training contract model by delivering a flexible, efficient and cost effective way for teams to access and utilise trainee solicitors and build up and develop their own teams.

This award means a huge amount to us particularly as it was judged by GC’s from a variety of leading organisations with judges stating that our approach was both “client centric” and represented a “genuine partnering with clients”.

We can’t ask for more than that!
