We are looking for potential partners, not merely trainees. We believe our selection process is straightforward and fair, and in turn we expect you to be informed.
We have an extremely personalised recruitment process which distinguishes us from other firms in the market. It starts with you completing and submitting the online application form below. All applications are then reviewed by lawyers and both first and second interviews are conducted by partners, not by HR professionals. We do not operate an automated CV review process: this means that all application forms and CVs are assessed by lawyers within the firm who take into account not just academic results but also breadth of experience, personality and candidate's personal achievements.
We are currently taking applications for our Manchester office. Please note the application deadline is 30 April. Applications received after this date will not be accepted.
Vacation Placement Scheme
Each of our offices runs a vacation placement scheme, which enables you to experience life at here and get hands-on experience in our core practice areas.
At the end of your one-week placement, we will spend time with you to review your work and gather your views on your experience. These views are important to us, as they enable us to ensure that our placements meet your expectations.
However, spaces on the vacation placement scheme are extremely limited and we only offer places to individuals who plan to apply for a training contract and/or who meet the standard required to be considered for a first interview. Since spaces are so few, we recommend that you check availability of places on the scheme at the relevant office, before applying.
