Thorntons welcomes largest ever trainee intake
Fourteen new trainee solicitors have been taken on at Tayside-headquartered Thorntons – the firm's largest ever intake.
The new recruits will undertake a two year traineeship across Thorntons' network of offices in a variety of legal disciplines, each working four six-month department rotations alongside learning and development programmes, a mentoring scheme and internal networking opportunities.
They include Ryan McCuaig and Kieran Wood from Glasgow, Charlotte Parker Smith and Adeeb Mostafa from Dundee, Thea Pock from Cork in Ireland, Lauren Smith from Forfar, Ross Cargill from Arbroath, Kerri McIver from Livingston, Sarah High from Monifieth, Simon Holbrey from Wolverhampton, Eilidh Connacher from Aberdeen, Cameron Mathieson from Brechin, Lindsay Edwards from Kingskettle in Fife and Ruth Swanson from Ayr.
Managing partner Craig Nicol commented: “We know that our trainees are the key to the future success of our business and with the firm’s strategic growth in recent years, it’s no surprise we’ve appointed our biggest intake of first year trainees for 2019-20.”
Due to growth and the firm's changing business needs, Thorntons has added to its requirement for trainee solicitors for 2021 and invites applications in time for the deadline of 5pm on Friday 4 October. Information about 2022 traineeships will be published in May 2020.
