As an Accutrainee you will be seconded to different firms and in-house teams but we still ensure you have opportunities to meet with other trainees so you can network, socialise and share experiences! We offer a range of social, networking and training events to all our trainees so they can feel part of a unique cohort with the added benefit that you’re all off doing very different things in very different places.

Here is what some of our current and past trainees have said about their life as an Accutrainee!
Testimonials: ‘Here is what some of our trainees said about our unique model’
Accutrainee has a genuinely exceptional variety of experiences on offer. Not only can you move from private to in-house seats, where you can obtain the typical private practise experience whilst in the following seat you can sit across the legal table with an in-house team, but the variety offered in the areas of law, from boutique litigation, financial institutions, film production/bond companies to US law firms is incredibly appealing. The level of support is some of the best I have experienced in any job and many of my friends training at other institutions are jealous of the dedication and time put in by Accutrainee. Monthly mentor meetings, presentations, socials and training sessions help to engender a close-nit environment which has been a joy to be involved with.
Accutrainee offers one of a kind training opportunity by providing full support to trainees by ensuring effective supervision within the secondment organisation, monthly mentor meetings, bi-annual appraisals, variety of training sessions and social events allowing efficient networking and exchange of experience with other Accutrainees.
They make sure to satisfy the SRA requirements while tailoring the training contract around trainees` career aspirations and areas of interest by providing a rich palette of secondment opportunities both in-house and within law firms.
The opportunity to train in-house in an international investment bank is the absolute highlight of my experience as it enhanced my commercial awareness at very early stages of my career and taught me flexibility and adaptability which are key must-haves for every lawyer!
The most unique aspect of an Accutrainee training contract is the opportunity to find your niche by being given the possibility to experience very different areas of law in both an in-house and a private practice environment. It allows for us to explore what best suits our personalities and branch out into areas not always available within one single firm or company. The monthly mentor meetings complement this aspect well by providing guidance and advice on how best to develop your legal, as well as soft skills based on your strengths and personality. Having to adapt to up to four business models and cultures really gives Accutrainees an edge over the competition when looking for NQ positions.
