Recruitment Process & How to Apply



What are we looking for?

Whilst academic qualifications are important (a 2:1 degree being preferred) we are looking for well rounded candidates who can demonstrate a passion for working in law, excellent communication skills, commercial awareness and a strong determination to succeed. Team working is important as is the ability to work effectively alone whilst planning and prioritising your work.   Candidates who have gained additional skills and experience outside of their degree through alternative careers, work experience placements, part-time jobs, voluntary work or through hobbies and interests will also stand out, as will those with an interest in marketing/ business development.   We welcome applications from both law and non-law candidates however we do require all successful candidates to complete the GDL and/or LPC before joining.

The Application Process

Applications are made via a CV and covering letter, along with a number of set questions which will be asked during the application process.

Shortlisted applicants will be invited to a first stage interview and written assessment which is usually conducted by HR and the Training Principal.

If successful at the first stage then candidates will progress on to the final stage of the process which consists of an interview with Partners of the Firm; you may also be asked to do a presentation or carry out a practical exercise as part of this final stage process.

Offers are made during November and successful candidates will be invited to meet with us again during our contact days before starting their training contract.
