If you join us for an in-house placement, you’ll gain full exposure to one practice area, allowing you to form strong team relationships getting really involved with their work and gaining relevant experience while enjoying an unexpected level of responsibility.
During 2020 our placement programme was, very successfully, delivered virtually. Whilst candidates were not assigned to a specific practice area, they were allocated a trainee buddy and a solicitor mentor. We use the Inside Sherpa platform as a hub for content and information and would plan to do that for 2021 if we are not able to revert to a ‘traditional’ in-house placement.
Participants have the chance to complete assessments for a Training Contract, attend presentations and get involved in social activities.
We anticipate that our placement dates will be as follows, although these may be subject to change:
Placement 1: 7th – 18th June 2021
Placement 2: 28th June till 9th July 2021
Our placements are full time i.e. 35 hours per week and may not be suitable for candidates with restricted work permits. We don’t offer ad hoc placements or work experience opportunities, so you must make sure you’re available for the full placement during the above dates.
If you want to find out more about the placements before applying, why not come and meet us at one of our events? You’ll find dates and details in our events calendar.
