Assessment days

If your application for a vacation scheme or training contract impresses, we will invite you to an assessment day at our London office. This day is designed so that we can get to know you and see what you are capable of. At the same time, it is your opportunity to meet us, experience our culture and find out more about life at Norton Rose Fulbright.

We are trialling an application blind assessment approach for this recruitment season which allows equal opportunities for all candidates, alleviates competitive pressure on the day and encourages candidates to be themselves. The interviewer will therefore receive a copy of your application that will include your answers to the questions on our application form but your academic and reference details will be removed, all reference to the name of your University and school will also be removed. Your interviewer will be aware that you have achieved our academic criteria and will be told whether your university course is law or non law.

Vacation scheme

The day will run from 10.30 am – 2.00 pm and will include:

  • a welcome from our trainee recruitment team
  • an interview with two senior members of the practice
  • a written exercise to assess your drafting skills
  • lunch with some of our trainees, followed by a guided tour of our office.

Training contract

The day will run from 10.00 am - 4.00 pm and will include:

  • a welcome from our trainee recruitment team
  • a written exercise to assess your drafting skills
  • a fictional negotiation exercise, which will test your team-working skills
  • lunch with some of our trainees
  • an interview with two senior members of the practice
  • afternoon tea and a guided tour of the office.

Your interview is your chance to shine as an individual and really show us who you are, so you will want to perform as well as you can. We have put together some interview advice which will help you on the day.

We are happy to reimburse reasonable travel expenses and we will do our best to get back to you quickly after the assessment day to let you know the outcome.

If you require a reasonable adjustment to our assessment process, or have any access requirements, please contact Natasha Oubridge (Trainee recruitment manager) at graduate.recruitment@nortonrosefulbright.com or on +44 20 7444 2729.
