Trainee secretarial scheme

As a trainee secretary at Norton Rose Fulbright, you will complete a two-year scheme that sets you on a path to be a legal secretary. From time-management and relationship-building skills to professional qualifications such as MOS Expert Standard in Word and Excel, you will gain the soft skills and technical knowledge you need to be successful.


Whether you have recently finished secretarial college or you have gained some experience elsewhere in a secretarial role, you will find that this scheme will really kick-start your career. What is more, where your career path takes you afterwards is very much in your control. You might choose to join a legal team, but that is not your only option. If you prefer, you can become a PA in one of our Business Services teams.


As you develop, your skills will too. If you wish, you will be able to build on your MOS Word Expert qualification by undertaking training in Outlook, PowerPoint and Excel. You will be encouraged to take Soft Skills courses too, in key areas such as Writing effective emails, Persuading and influencing for success, and Energising your time at work.
