Legal Apprenticeship

About the role

Kickstart your career with the UK's largest digital automotive platform by joining our Governance, Risk and Compliance team as a Legal Apprentice.

You will join a small team who will support you in building your skills and knowledge allowing you to provide high quality advice and influence at the right time, to enable Auto Trader to make great decisions. You will learn to handle a range of tasks, including managing business queries, conducting research, drafting and negotiating commercial contracts and helping to manage our intellectual property, with a focus on copyright and trademarks.

This role requires excellent prioritisation skills and the ability to work well with people and explain things clearly. You will learn to manage multiple queries simultaneously and often reactively, provide solutions and support people with what they need.

As you’ll be working with lots of different people from across the business, collaboration and building relationships is crucial, as the different functions work closely together it’s important that everyone collaborates and works as one amazing team to meet the needs of our business.

As a Legal Apprentice, you will complete a Paralegal Level 3 Apprenticeship with an external training provider.

What we're looking for

  • To be considered for this apprenticeship, you must not hold a qualification at level 3 or above in the same or similar subject
  • Meet the course entry requirements: A minimum of three A-Levels or 96 UCAS points. (UCAS points can also come from a BTEC or completion of another level 3 apprenticeship in a different subject)
  • Five GCSEs at grade C (or 4) or above, including English and mathematics (or equivalent). If you do not have English and Maths you must be willing to study and resit within the first 6 months of the apprenticeship. (Full support and funding will be provided for this)
  • You have great attention to detail and are a natural problem solver who enjoys getting to the bottom of things
  • You will be friendly and be able to explain things clearly in person and in writing, which will enable you to build relationships with stakeholders at all levels
  • You have strong organisation and prioritisation skills and a calm approach that will help you deal with multiple tasks effectively
  • It would be desirable if you have knowledge using IT systems and software; however, this can be taught, so it is not essential

We understand that a person’s potential can be expressed in many different ways. Most importantly, we are looking for you to be driven and excited by a career in law at Auto Trader.

The Legal Apprenticeship typically lasts 24 months, requiring dedication, a love of learning, and a genuine aim to succeed. This is a permanent role, and the apprenticeship will support your learning and development. We see this apprenticeship as the beginning of a career in law and are willing to support your development beyond the apprenticeship to allow you to achieve further qualifications, should you be successful. We are happy to discuss this further during the interview process.

Benefits and more

We offer a salary of £19,500 dependent on experience and a flexible benefits package to support your health and well-being.

You'll have 28 days holiday per year, and that's in addition to bank holidays and half day closures on Christmas and New Year's Eve.

Our Aviva pension scheme offers between 5% to 7% employer contributions depending on the percentage you choose to contribute, and we provide Bupa healthcare cover for all our employees.

Our employee assistance programme, car salary sacrifice scheme, Calm subscription and share-save options are just some of the other benefits on offer should you decide to join us.

We're passionate about career development at Auto Trader, and we all develop and learn things differently. Whether you attend an external conference, utilise a LinkedIn Learning license or choose one of our in-house masterclasses, there's something for everyone.

Expected start date is September 19th, 2022.
