Welcome to Hugh James trainee pages

  • Are you highly motivated to succeed?
  • Do you have good communication and social skills?
  • Do you enjoy a challenge and solving problems?
  • Above all have you got a good sense of humour?

If you answered ‘yes’ to these questions, you are the kind of person we are looking for.

These web pages have been written by our present trainees and graduate recruitment team.

We hope they will give you a flavour of trainee life in Hugh James and will provide answers to any questions you may have about the recruitment process.



Our summer placement scheme is an integral part of our recruitment process, the closing date for summer 2019 is 31 January 2019. This is our preferred application route for our Cardiff 2021 training contracts and London 2019, 2020 and 2021 training contracts.

If you are unable to attend a summer placement scheme you are able to apply for a training contract directly, the closing date for the 2021 intake is 30 June 2019.
