Training contract to commence 2020: 31 December 2017
Initial online application, candidates who make the cut progress to an
assessment centre consisting of two interviews, a case study interview
(with a partner) followed by a competency interview. Each lasts for about
an hour. For the case study, you're given a folder of information containing
a range of documents. These could be a short legal document, a meeting
note, an email or a press cutting. A scenario might be that your partner has
been called into a meeting so you've got to take over and meet the client on
your own. You've got about half an hour to identify the issues then give a
short presentation to the 'client' (the partner-interviewer) on the issues
you've spotted followed by a discussion.
