Bond Dickinson is to recruit three school-leaver apprentices in its Plymouth office, with a view to launching apprenticeships nationwide next year.
The three apprentices, which Bond Dickinson will recruit from the local area, will take the Chartered Legal Executive (CILEx) Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship in Legal Services, splitting their time between learning and working.
Recruitment manager Samantha Lee said: “We see the Advanced Apprenticeship as a great way of combining the advantages of CILEx training alongside the development of workplace skills.
The fact that this training route attracts public funding is an added incentive, as it will allow us to recruit and develop excellent staff while reducing overheads.”
The apprentices will be paid £250 per week, or £6.66 per hour, if based on a 37.5 hour standard week.
The Plymouth apprenticeships will act as a pilot, with other Bond Dickinson offices potentially recruiting apprentices in 2015.
Bond Dickinson joins a host of firms which offer apprenticeships, the latest being Hill Dickinson, which launched apprenticeships last week (28 May 2014).
