If we’re going to continue to be successful, we need to find the next generation of Morton Fraser people.

To do this we take a lot of care with our selection process. And we expect you to do the same.

Trainees are chosen by a trained panel of Morton Fraser partners. We see our trainees as potential future partners, so this investment is time well spent.

We’re looking for high-calibre candidates who can run with the information they’re given, who can deliver an argument, find quick solutions and form strong relationships.

Most of all, we’re looking for trainees who can provide a better future for our clients, for our firm and for themselves.

Applications for traineeships commencing in September 2019 are now closed. Our next hiring will be for 2020 - see key dates below.

The Traineeship

  • Our traineeship is based over both our offices in Edinburgh and Glasgow and there is also the potential for a secondment to one of our clients.

  • Every year we offer up to ten legal graduates a two-year Scottish traineeship. Our chosen trainees will spend six months in four different seats, offering them great access to our 12 practice areas in four divisions.
