Winter Scott LLP is keen to discuss employment opportunities with enthusiastic candidates with a First Class or 2:1 degree from a Russell Group University or with Maritime experience. Ideally, candidates will have shown a particular interest in shipping law either through their education or previous work experience.

We believe in the quality of our people and if you would like to develop a career in shipping and/or trade related litigation, we would welcome the opportunity to talk to you.

We have extensive international contacts and encourage people joining to consider the possibility of working overseas on secondment. We may ask candidates who are applying for position at a relatively junior level to join us for work experience to ensure that they and we would be a good fit.

Winter Scott LLP invites candidates to apply directly with their CV and covering letter.
