We are continually recruiting for apprentices to join our firm. We have apprenticeship opportunities in both Stockton and Newcastle and are looking for candidates who are hardworking, keen to learn and who are looking for a long term career in law.
As a Jacksons Apprentice you will work towards a Level 3 in business administration. You will work in one of our legal departments focusing on one area of law. You will be integrated into our team and be given responsibilities and meaningful work experience.
Duties for an apprentice at Jacksons are varied, they include meeting clients, checking ID, taking initial enquiries from new clients, opening files, sending out quotes, using the practice management system to create communications for customers, learning about the law in the relevant department as well as joining in with companywide initiatives from Charity activities to the Apprentice Club.
Learning takes the form of a mixture of on-the-job learning, plus monthly one to ones with a tutor who guide you through an online workbook, creating a portfolio of work. It takes around 18 months to finish the portfolio of work, during which time you spend around 20% of your working week on apprenticeship work. You then complete an End Point Assessment (EPA) which comprises of 3 stages before you are finally qualified.
Our goal is to retain all our qualified apprentices in the firm. Our most recent qualified apprentices have gone on to become, amongst other things, Trainee Paralegals or Finance Assistants, all have been retained in meaningful jobs with long term careers prospects and job security.
