Trainee Solicitor Vacancy

Temple Heelis are an historic Lakeland firm of Solicitors with a strong focus on the future.

We are looking to expand our team of expert solicitors and recruit a Trainee Solicitor to join us in 2019/2020.

A well-established firm based in South Lakeland, Cumbria, we were founded by William Heelis’ (Mr Heelis was married to Beatrix Potter) predecessors in 1822.  We have a deep-rooted connection with the South Lakes and the thriving market town of Kendal.

We offer services for businesses and individuals across a wide range of areas, including Property, Litigation, Family, Wills & Probate.

Temple Heelis currently operates from 3 offices. The head office is in Kendal, with branch offices in Windermere and Ambleside.

The role of Trainee Solicitor at Temple Heelis will involve working with solicitors and assistants across our 3 offices in at least 3 different areas of law.

The ideal candidate will have local connections and must have completed their LPC.  Your own transport is advantageous, but not a prerequisite.

We are proud to have a 100% retention rate for our trainees in recent years.

Outside of the office, Temple Heelis has a recognised presence in the local community.  In 2018, we rowed the whole length of Lake Windermere and back (some 20 miles!) for charity.  In 2019, we are taking on our own Triathlon, competing against other local businesses to raise funds for worthy local causes.

We encourage staff to attend networking events after office hours as they’re a great way to build connections.  We also organise a wide range of social events, for example, a summer party and walking in the fells. We feel our work/life balance is second to none and we like to make the most of where we live as well as carrying out the varied and often challenging legal work we undertake.

If you’d like to find out more about the role, please contact Richard Moore on 01539 723757.

To apply, please send your CV and a covering letter to Richard Moore, Temple Heelis Solicitors, 1 Kent View, Kendal, LA9 4DZ or by email to Feel free to explain about a bit about yourself and why you’d be perfect for the role.
