Training with Mundays
Mundays has for many years prided itself in offering comprehensive, hands-on training to quality applicants who aspire to develop into the solicitors and partners of the future. We regard it as being in our trainees’ interests just as much as ours to ensure that, in the course of their training contract, they are given the opportunity to take on as much responsibility as they merit.
As a result we are extremely pleased that Mundays has been nominated for the award of Best Trainer-Medium Regional firm at the LawCareers.Net Training and Recruitment Awards in 2015 for the fourth consecutive year. In addition our Training Principal, Stephen Morris was proud to be nominated in 2014 for the award for Best Training Principal - Small Trainee Intake. These nominations were based on feedback surveys from our current trainees; over 2,300 individual assessments were gathered by LawCareers.Net across the country. This nomination acknowledges the high quality of the training on which we pride ourselves.
Trainees spend periods of six months in four different departments, sharing a room with a partner or senior solicitor so that they can observe exactly how the job is done and have the opportunity to learn from day one. Trainees also have the opportunity to work for other fee earners so that they are exposed to a wide range of specialisms and working styles in their department.
Trainees’ performance and progress is monitored through their training contract, with regular feedback sessions and more formal appraisals, giving both us and the trainees the opportunity to address any matters of concern and assist in the building of the trainees’ careers towards qualification and beyond.
What are we looking for?
We welcome applications from anyone who has achieved (or expects to achieve) a 2.1 degree in their chosen subject. We accept applications from law and non-law graduates. We also require you to have achieved AAB (or the equivalent) at A Level.
We are looking for individuals with personality and confidence who will be able to work well with everyone at Mundays – from the most senior partners to the office junior – and who will not be frightened of hard work while at the same time have a rounded personality and outside interests which will help them to achieve a balance in their life.
Salary and benefits
Our trainees are paid a competitive salary. We also provide a comprehensive benefits package which includes Mundays Rewards, private medical insurance, a contributory pension scheme with company-matched contributions between 3-5% and life insurance at 3x salary.
Please apply online at www.apply4law.com/mundays. You are asked to ensure that you provide information on your skills as well as outside interests and achievements, giving emphasis on how these have contributed to your development.

There will be a selection day in the first week of September 2015 which allows you to make an informed assessment as to whether you wish to pursue your application and on the basis of which we select candidates for interviews. Interviews are usually then scheduled in the second week of September.
