About the role and team
Our vacation scheme has two purposes; it provides you with the opportunity to understand the work that we do and to discover whether it is your passion too. It allows us to get to know you and whether you would be a good fit for a training contract with us. You will spend one week with us, splitting your time between two departments. We will assign you a trainee as a buddy and a fee earner as a mentor and assessor. You will have an opportunity to be involved in the real work that we do, carry out at least one group task and meet the people you might be working with. We will provide you with constructive feedback following the vacation scheme and will let you know if we can make you an offer of a training contract. We will be hosting our vacation scheme during June and July 2023 so please make sure you are free to attend!
