Bristol summer vacation scheme
If you join us for a vacation scheme placement in Bristol, you'll spend one week in one team. You'll work on live cases for real clients, get input from Partners and develop a broad range of skills across the full legal and business spectrum.
We do things differently. Our policy is an open one – we’re open to ideas, open to connected working, open plan and open minded. From our multi-skilled working community to our commitment to sustainable and responsible business, we’ve reshaped the traditional law firm into a fresh, bright, inclusive and creative place to work. As a ‘Best Companies’ accredited firm, we’re confident that our way works. We continue to win business from FTSE listed, national and international companies including the BBC, Sainsbury's, Boohoo.com, Barclays Bank and Home Retail Group.
You will meet a wide range of the firm's employees every day be it undertaking work or at formal and informal networking events. You will meet our current trainees who will be able to support and guide you through this process. You will meet our Partners who will provide guidance through the week. Finally you will meet our clients and where appropriate attend client visits.
At the end of the week you will undertake an assessment process including a strength based interview, a group exercise and a presentation.
The Ideal Candidate
You could be studying for a law or a non-law degree, or you may be looking to change profession. We have no preference as we will be assessing you on your ability to become a Solicitor, not on your present legal knowledge. We are looking for well rounded individuals who have the ability to develop excellent technical and commercial skills and help continue TLT's growth and success.
You will need to be able to start a training contract in 2020. Please only apply for one vacation scheme.
