Kent: council to take on trainees

Legal Week reports that trainees will assist in the areas of property, planning & highways, contracts & commercial, litigation & employment and social welfare, as well as potentially carrying out secondments with other local authorities and partner organisations around the UK.
Kent's director of governance and law Geoff Wild added that the scheme will link with higher education institutions including the University of Kent and the University of Greenwich in a bid to encourage local legal talent to apply for the positions.
