What we look for

While we welcome all kinds of backgrounds and perspectives, there are some things that we like our people to have in common. So before you progress with your application, ask yourself the following questions. If you can answer all four positively, and you can demonstrate this to us in your application, then we should talk.

Do I have a global outlook?

Our reach is worldwide, as are the careers we offer. Almost all of the work here has an international aspect. You should expect considerable international exposure as part of your training contract, and beyond. Does this appeal?

Am I ready to get involved?

The more you put in here, the more you will get out. And we’re not just talking about how hard you work. Getting involved means asking questions, meeting people, embracing opportunities and being curious about your work, your colleagues and our clients.

Am I open minded?

By this, we mean are you eager to gain different kinds of experience? Your career here could go in any number of directions, and you must be adaptable and adventurous enough to make the most of every opportunity, wherever it is.

Am I more than just academically strong?

We look for sharp and agile thinkers with strong interpersonal skills and impressive academic records. However, the lawyers who do best here are the ones who go beyond, to think commercially about the business challenges our clients face.

Am I thinking long-term?

You are just starting out, so we will not expect you to have a vision of your future already laid out. However, a long-term focus about your career and the relationships you will build with clients and colleagues is essential.
