The Zambia Project

Every year a group of trainees travel to Zambia to work for two weeks on projects to lift standards of living and improve health facilities for the communities in the area.

We host regular open evenings at our office (Victoria House, Gloucester St, Belfast) where you will have the opportunity to tour the office, meet with partners, associates and trainees, and attend our CV and interview skills workshops.

The Process

From the applications we receive, our Trainee Committee makes an initial selection of candidates. We will notify you in early November whether you have been included in this selection.

Offers will be made shortly after that. We look forward to reading your application and we wish you every success.

Remember, you do not need to have completed an internship prior to applying for a place on the Trainee Programme.



Diversity & Inclusion

The ethos of diversity and inclusion is deeply embedded in the organisational core values and the overall vision of the firm.
