We are always looking for exceptional people to join our firm. We work in beautiful surroundings within the Blenheim Palace Estate in Oxfordshire, in the Thames-side town of Marlow, Buckinghamshire and in London.
We believe the success of The Burnside Partnership lies in the quality of our lawyers and other professionals and our support staff
We are strongly committed to learning and development, have an inclusive culture and value every member of our team. The Burnside Partnership offers a breadth of development opportunities for Solicitors, Legal Executives, Legal Apprentices and tax specialists.
We operate an award-winning Apprenticeship Programme.
We are recognised as a STEP Employer Partner. STEP is the global professional association for practitioners who specialise in family inheritance and succession planning. STEP works to improve public understanding of the issues families face in this area and promotes education and high professional standards among its members.
STEP Employer Partner accreditation results from our firm’s commitment to furthering our staff’s learning and development and helping our employees gain individual STEP accreditation. The seal of approval from STEP recognises the strong emphasis our firm places on our training programmes and mentoring and our support for strengthening the industry’s commitment to the highest standards of expertise.
Our Head of Development & Learning, Richard Burnside leads on our support and qualification programmes.

Solicitors & Tax Professionals
We are seeking Solicitors at all levels of PQE who are specialists in private client and property law. We are also looking for exceptional tax professionals. You must be curious to learn. If you are a Solicitor and not STEP-qualified, we will assist you in your study. We will also support tax professionals in furthering their qualifications.

We are a strong and thriving team, ambitious and yet friendly and we welcome like-minded lawyers who are keen to progress their careers.
We are looking for exceptional qualified or trainee Legal Executives. You must be ambitious, hard-working and keen to progress.

For those who want to get stuck into the world of work straightaway and yet continue their studies, we offer Paralegal Apprenticeships (in partnership with CILEx Law School). An apprenticeship enables you to gain practical and relevant legal work experience together with both on and off the job training and study. You’ll achieve sought-after qualifications and get paid while you learn. In March 2017 one of our apprentices, Chloe won the Oxfordshire Apprentice of the Year Award 2017. Chloe is now a trainee Legal Executive.
We also offer a Business Administration Apprenticeship (again in partnership with CILEx Law School). This is a great opportunity for anyone who wants to start a career in business administration. You will learn important business administration skills and put them to practice in a supportive and friendly workplace.
