Very much so - there were insights into the firm's practice areas, sessions with partners, associates and trainees, as well as professionals from the Advanced Delivery group.
The firm went to great effort to deliver the full two-day programme despite Covid-19 restrictions, even sending ingredients to us in the post for an evening social event.
We were assigned a trainee buddy who was available to answer any questions. Graduate Recruitment were also very good at answering any questions we had.
Very much so - there was a lot of coverage of key skills useful for a trainee solicitor, as well as information about the process for securing a training contract. Participants were fast-tracked to interview for a vacation scheme or training contract.
Fully structured over the course of the scheme, with a trainee buddy contact available before and after to answer additional questions.
Very welcoming from the firm. The cohort on the scheme was also great.
The firm provided guidance on the next steps to secure a training contract and fast-tracked participants through the vacation scheme and training contract application process.
There were several sessions with trainees (and trainee buddies were allocated) to provide insight into the work of a trainee at the firm.
As much as was realistically possible without an in-person element (due to Covid-19). The environment was very welcoming.
Very valuable - substantially increased my desire to pursue a career in law at the firm.
The scheme is unpaid. Due to the online format this year due to Covid-19, there were no expenses claimed. The firm covered the cost of items that were sent to participants by post for the scheme.
Yes - there were several interactive sessions with lawyers from across the firm. All sessions provided the opportunity to ask questions.
The best I have so far encountered on a scheme delivered remotely. The firm sent ingredients for the evening social to participants in the post. The social was then run live, in the evening, via videoconference.
Yes - the firm provided sessions with their diversity networks, wellbeing network and pro bono team.
