Our offer and how to apply for pupillage

In the 2018 recruitment round, Five Paper will be looking to take on two pupils for fully-funded 12-month pupillages commencing in October 2019.


Our pupils will receive a total of £30,000. This will include a £25,000 award, plus guaranteed earnings in the second six of £5,000. Up to £10,000 of this may be drawn down during the preceding year in three tranches, with the balance paid in equal monthly instalments during the year.



Pupils are entitled to paid holiday of 20 days per year, with 10 days to be taken in each six-month period.

How to apply

We do not use the Pupillage Gateway. Applications should be made using our application form, which will be available to download on this page in December 2017. Applicants are strongly advised to read Five Paper’s Pupillage Selection Policy and Pupillage Selection Criteria before completing the application form.

Applications should be sent by email as a Word or PDF attachment to pupillage@fivepaper.com. We will accept applications from 8 January 2018. The deadline for applications is 18:00 on 13 February 2018. Any application received after that time and date will be automatically rejected.
