Trainee Solicitor Surgery has been helping candidates secure training contracts & vacation schemes for over a decade.


Our Aims

Our primary aim is to provide real-world careers advice from experts in the recruitment of trainee solicitors.

There is no shortage of advice online on how to get a training contract. We strive to cut through the noise and give you the most essential advice that will have the biggest impact on your chances of success.

Our History

TSS was started in 2009 by former Sky TV lawyer, Matt Oliver, to share the advice he had given to the students and graduates he mentored and coached over the years.

After a career change, Matt has become one of the UK's leading legal career coaches. He runs the Legal Careers Group and coaches lawyers (at all levels of experience) on their career development.
