At Walkers, our continued growth and success as a firm is aligned to the talent of the people that we recruit and their development into successful lawyers. Our people are our greatest asset. They form our culture, make us stand apart from our competitors and are the reason why our clients choose to do business with us. We have an abundance of talented people in the firm which makes for a high-performing but also friendly environment. To maintain our position as a leading international law firm, we only recruit exceptional candidates for our trainee programme. We look for candidates with a strong educational record who are:

  • ambitious, entrepreneurial, determined and invested in the long-term development of themselves and the success of our firm
  • commercially aware of the financial services sector
  • good communicators, problem solvers and team players
  • self-motivated
  • energetic and positive

In return we offer excellent training and career opportunities, mentorship and guidance throughout your traineeship and the opportunity to work with prominent international clients. You will be given challenging work and receive continuous feedback throughout each rotation.

Our graduate trainee programme is geared towards talented candidates with an interest in working for a fast-paced leading international financial services law firm and who wish to experience the training and opportunities needed to become successful lawyers. Our programme has been designed to supplement the PPC course at Blackhall and includes a wide range of department specific workshops, seminars and practice group insights. As a trainee lawyer in Walkers, we will nurture and develop your expertise via at least three legal service practice area rotations while working side by side with Ireland's leading financial services lawyers.
