JMW Solicitors LLP


JMW Solicitors is not your ordinary law firm. We do things differently. If you have the drive, determination and intelligence then we would like to hear from you.

We support all our people in developing their careers, and helping them reach their full potential. Our success depends on attracting the best people and nurturing their talent.

We also believe in treating our people as people. We encourage our lawyers to have a life outside the office – and to enjoy the time they spend in work. Of course we all work hard, but we also recognise the importance of home and family. We value strong all-round team players who can develop good working relationships with clients and colleagues.

The firm is committed to providing equal opportunities in employment. This means that all job applicants, employees and Partners will receive equal treatment regardless of age, race, colour, ethnic or national origin, sex, marital status, sexual orientation or disability.

Since 1978, we have been helping people and organisations in all kinds of legal matters, meaning we have a great and deep understanding of the law. All of our specialist departments are Partner-led with the aim of working for clients with clarity and determination.

Based in Manchester’s Spinningfields with a team in excess of 450 partners and staff, JMW aims to offer an entirely new approach to the provision of legal services. We train our people on the importance of quality and efficiency to help them understand client’s needs and the best way to meet their expectations. We are proud of our northern roots and heritage, and consider it important to give back to our local community.

    Each year, we look for the very best new trainee solicitors to join us and to become part of the exciting future of this firm. We look for a strong academic record (a minimum of 2:1 degree level), as well as excellent interpersonal and team working skills, drive and enthusiasm.

    We would like candidates to show an ability to organise themselves and others, and that you can combine technical ability with a common sense approach to your work. We would also like to see some details about your other personal achievements and interests.

    We believe in recruiting the right people to help drive our business forward, which means that we are interested in you as an individual, and to hear how you feel your personal skills and qualities will benefit JMW. Some link to the local area is preferred but not essential. We are seeking candidates who can work to the very highest standards in order to meet our clients’ expectations.
