The firm

Lewis Silkin is a UK top-100 commercial law firm with offices in London, Oxford, Cardiff, Dublin and Hong Kong. The firm is recognised by clients and industries alike as being distinct: for its deep understanding, insight and advice to creative, innovative and brand-focused businesses; for its market-leading international practice in employment, immigration and reward; and for delivering pragmatic, commercial advice in a refreshingly human way.

With 57 partners and more than 380 staff, the firm is structured around two key divisions; the Employment, Immigration and Reward (EIR) and the Creators, Makers and Innovators (CMI).

The department

The client training function in the Employment, Immigration and Reward Division at Lewis Silkin is part of our Worksphere Service ( ), which provides a variety of HR services to our clients. We provide bespoke training sessions on all aspects of employment law for a range of audiences including managers, HR professionals and in-house lawyers. The role of legal trainer will primarily involve delivering these training sessions and providing support to the training function generally.

This role is part of a small team of trainers and reports to the Managing Legal Trainer.


Preparing and delivering bespoke training sessions to clients, usually at their own premises, on all aspects of employment law.These sessions may be run by just the Legal Trainer or alongside other trainers or members of the division.

Assisting with the preparation and running of multi-day HR Academy courses, at our premises and at the client’s premises.

Assisting with the production of template and bespoke e-learning / webinar courses for clients.

Assisting with planning and implementing marketing of our client training service, both internally and externally.

Assisting generally with maintaining our training resources and records, including keeping template courses up to date.

Additional information

The role involves significant amounts of travel to clients’ premises to deliver courses. The majority of this travel is currently within London/the South East, but increasingly our training locations are in the Midlands or further afield, so being located north of London would be an advantage.

The role would suit an employment lawyer with excellent academics, a clear communication style and strong interpersonal skills. Some prior experience of delivering practical client training courses (either in classroom or as a webinar) to managers as well as HR is desirable.
