Application and interview tips
BE AS INFORMED AS YOU CAN
Our industry focus, global reach and culture are all important to us, so make sure you understand them.
SHOW US WHY YOU CHOSE US
When you’ve got to grips with who we are and where we’re going, then make it clear why this has influenced your decision.
MAKE NO MISTAKES
Ensure you understand each question before answering and don’t forget to check and double-check your spelling and grammar. Attention to detail is massively important in law, and mistakes will show.
SHOW US HOW YOU THINK
We look for curiosity and commercial awareness in our trainees, so take every opportunity to bring these out.
So now, how can you get prepared and become part of us?
How do you stand out during the interview?
As with your application, show your knowledge of our global reach, our strategy and our work. And say what it all means to you.
KNOW YOUR NEWS
It helps to be up to speed with the latest commercial issues and developments, so read the business and legal press.
KNOW ABOUT US
Get to understand our practice and the areas we focus on. But make sure you know what these really mean – don’t just quote our brochure at us.
Be ready to do most of the talking. After all, we will want to get to know you.
QUESTIONS AS WELL AS ANSWER
Think of some pertinent questions for the end of your interview – we like enquiring minds and people who show a genuine interest in who we are and what we offer.
Above all, be who you are, not who you think we want you to be. We’ll want you to be yourself when you join, so your interview is a good place to start.
