You don't always need a law degree to work for us but you can gain more qualifications while you work

Apprenticeships are always a win: win, it is a job with training meaning you can earn while you learn and gain the necessary skills and competencies in your chosen career.

How do they work?

Apprenticeships are open to anyone aged 16 yrs or over. Entry levels range from 5 GCSE's or the equivalent up to Degree level which is Bachelor 's / Master's Degree or equivalent.

The Apprenticeship Scheme takes between 2 - 3 years to complete. If you do an apprenticeship with Battens you can learn the ropes in different departments across our busy law firm and find your feet in an area you are interested in.

Apprentices work in all areas of the business including; administration, HR, IT, marketing and facilities. As you are working in a busy law firm you will also get to experience many of the different legal areas of the business including:

  • Family
  • Private Client
  • Tax and Trusts
  • Personal Injury
  • Dispute Resolution

We often see our apprentices stay on with us once their apprenticeship is over, and blossom into astute, knowledge-fuelled professionals.
