At Horwich Farrelly we do things differently. We recognise the value of our employees and understand that they set us apart from our competitors.  So, if you want to experience what life is like as a lawyer at Horwich Farrelly, join us on our Easter or Summer Vacation Scheme in 2018.  

Horwich Farrelly’s vacation scheme gives you the opportunity to spend two weeks in our Manchester office, within our award winning Fraud Department and highly successful Motor & Casualty Department. You will be assigned your own training buddy in each department who will offer you support and guidance. They will also be able to offer a genuine insight into the Horwich Farrelly Training Contract.

We will provide you with a blend of work based activities such as a mock trial, comprehensive case management training and presentations from our Partners.
