The purpose of the scheme is:
- To enable selected candidates to experience the working environment of a successful regional commercial practice; and
- To enable us to assess your potential as a future trainee, as we use the vacation placement scheme to recruit many of our future trainees.
If your application is successful, you will spend one week at your chosen office. During this time you will spend time in each of the main disciplines in that office, including Corporate Commercial, Employment, Litigation and Commercial Property. You will work closely with our current trainees and qualified solicitors and experience the opportunities which are open to our trainees including (where possible) attendance at client meetings, hearings and seminars.
It is your opportunity both to get to know us better and to show us your potential as a future trainee of the firm; many of our current and past trainees undertook a placement with us before joining the firm.
As with all firms, places on our work experience scheme are limited in number. We therefore ask that all candidates complete an online application form by clicking here. Please note that the application process for the 2020 vacation scheme closes on 31 March 2020.
