Hill Dickinson will recruit 12 apprentices to work in its Liverpool office from September 2014.
The two-year scheme, during which apprentices will study the Chartered Legal Executive (CILEx) Level 3 qualification, will allow apprentices to qualify while they work and will also provide mentoring opportunities.
Apprentices need to have gained three B grades at A-level, although entry to the scheme is not limited to school-leavers as applicants of all ages can apply so long as they are not graduates. Candidates will receive £243 per week, which translates to an hourly wage of £6.48 if applied to a standard 37.5-hour week.
Hill Dickinson senior partner David Wareing said: “As a business with its roots firmly in Liverpool, Hill Dickinson has always been keen to provide career opportunities for young people from Merseyside and this scheme is a further way of actively achieving this… we are certain that the scheme will be a huge success for those individuals and the firm.
“The apprenticeship scheme provides an early entry route into a legal career for high calibre candidates and a genuinely attractive alternative to the traditional route into the legal profession through university and law school.”
