Guernsey Bursary Programme

At Walkers, our people are our greatest assets. They form our culture, and make us stand apart from our competitors. We have an exceptional collegiate team culture, which is underpinned by our core values of respect, integrity, consistency, honesty and trust. Diversity is our secret weapon – it’s the sheer breadth of Walkers people that makes us who we are – gathered from across the globe and fluent in languages, jurisdictions and cultures that help us to mirror our clients and keep our own thinking in tune with the world we operate in.

With offices across Asia, the Caribbean and Europe, Walkers is a leading offshore law firm with a truly international perspective.

As the fastest-growing legal team in the Channel Islands we are constantly looking for talented people who fit the Walkers approach to law: commercial, client-focused and entrepreneurial.

We are looking for students in Guernsey who want to be part of our bursary programme for legal roles - our award is for the length of your course and covers:

  • Financial support in instalments
  • Paid summer work placements at Walkers with experience across all practice areas (over a minimum of four weeks)
  • An experienced mentor to provide support and guidance
  • Career advice from our experienced HR team as well as lawyers
  • Possibility of a career with Walkers when you finish your degree 


"I felt supported, valued and empowered to develop my understanding of the corporate and commercial law, bolster my interpersonal skills and generally further my career. I would highly recommend this scheme to students of all ages, whether considering a career in law, completing law degrees or commencing their solicitor’s qualifying exams."
