Careers with Us

If you are a talented lawyer looking for interesting, high quality legal work in a beautiful location on the south coast, we’d love to hear from you.

Trainee Solicitors Opportunity

We are a long established and respected law firm based along the coast in beautiful East Sussex with offices (mostly within a stone’s throw of the beach) and close to main line stations in Hastings, Eastbourne, Battle, Bexhill and Rye, employing nearly a hundred staff. We are able to offer a good work life balance and a relaxed and friendly working environment.

We have an established tradition of developing Trainee Solicitors within the Firm to meet the growing future requirements of a highly successful law firm.  We can offer training from experienced trainers in Residential & Commercial Property transactions, corporate work, the Court of Protection and Vulnerable Clients, Will Trusts and Probate, Dispute Resolution and Family Law.  There are many post-qualification opportunities with many trainees remaining with the firm post-qualification and several former trainees going on to become partners.

This September we are looking to take on up to three Paralegals ideally with strong local links, possessing a good law degree and possibly having completed their LPC. Applicants with energy and enthusiasm who will, if successful in the Paralegal role, and if not already having gained their LPC, will be offered day release to do so. Those successful in the Paralegal role, with an LPC will then be offered an 18 month training contract.  A successful applicant can thus be a qualified solicitor in 3 ½ years.  Practical training and some financial support towards academic fees and unpaid day release for training and paid study leave will all form part of the employment package.

Interested applicants should email their CV together with a covering letter to hr@heringtons.com by 12 July 2021.  Successful prospect applicants will be invited to attend an assessment day event in Hastings on Thursday 22 July 2021.

What our employees say about Heringtons

Yuen Chan - Partner and Solicitor :  

"No two days are the same when working in conveyancing and that is why I love my job!  I am able to meet a variety of people and I get a lot of satisfaction in letting a client know they have exchanged or completed, especially when it is their first home -  I am almost as excited as they are!  I am based at the Bexhill office which is just a few minutes walk to the seafront and town.   It is lovely in the summer to sit on the beach and eat lunch.  The firm holds wonderful events for colleagues - I’ve been to Christmas events at the Azur, Manor Barn, the Grand Hotel Eastbourne and family fun days at Sedlescombe Golf Course.  It's a great opportunity to catch up with all my colleagues in the other offices.   Heringtons participates in the Hastings Legal Walk which I attended in my first year with the firm, that was a lot of fun and an opportunity to raise money for charity.  The firm often holds fund raisers throughout the year for charity which is great as it usually it involves eating a variety of cakes and bakes!"

 

 

Sophie Ryan, Float Secretary :

"I love working for Heringtons!  There are new challenges every day and always something interesting around the corner.  However, what I feel is the best part of my job is that  I get to travel around all of our offices and meet all members of staff.  They are such a lovely and fun bunch of people that coming to work is actually enjoyable (and how rare is that these days!) " 

 

 

Belinda Wood, Assistant to the Managing Partner: 

"Heringtons has provided me with career advancement and development.  After many years of working in the private, corporate and self employed sectors I joined the firm six years ago as a Receptionist which I fully enjoyed.  However I was grateful that the firm picked up on my background in marketing my own business in hospitality and client services so that they could better utilise my experience and develop my present role. At a latter time in my working life I am grateful for having been given the opportunity to leave the corporate "London" life behind and very happy to be settled in this beautiful part of the country working alongside a great team!"
