Christmas insight work experience: Applications close 11 November 2016
Monday 5 December 2016 to Friday 9 December 2016
Aimed at first-year law students and penultimate year non-law students this scheme is designed to give you your first real taste into working life at an international law firm.
You will spend a week sitting in one of our departments where you will shadow one of our expert lawyers in their chosen field. This will give you the opportunity to observe sophisticated legal transactions, develop an understanding of our core industry sectors and learn how we help our clients achieve their commercial objectives.
You will be allocated a trainee mentor who will assist you with any tasks that you are given and who be on hand to provide day-to-day advice.
A variety of social events will also allow you to network with colleagues from across the firm and give you an insight into our people and culture.
We offer one Easter and two summer vacation schemes in London and one summer vacation scheme in Manchester which provide a fantastic opportunity to gain experience and find out more about Clyde & Co first-hand. The schemes are aimed at penultimate-year law students and final-year students of other disciplines. The placement schemes are also open to candidates who are currently studying for the GDL or LPC, or who are considering a career change.
Our schemes provide an opportunity for candidates to meet lawyers at every level, undertake a variety of work, and experience the very real differences between academic study and legal practice.
For further details please visit our website www.clydecograduates.com. If your application is successful you will be interviewed by a member of the graduate team for a place on the scheme.
Training contract programme
We welcome applications from both law and non-law students who combine excellent academic results with strong commercial acumen and a practical approach to problem-solving. Trainees need to have the social skills to enable them to communicate effectively and build relationships with clients and colleagues. We welcome students from a variety of backgrounds who can contribute fresh thinking and share an international outlook. An eye for detail allied with sharp analytical skills, discerning judgement and commercial acumen as well as a strong sense of motivation are a must.
Our trainees are extremely important to us. We recruit to retain and invest significantly in all of our trainees' development, education and future. We have a relatively small intake comparative to our size and we value your individuality - you're not just a number to us but an integral part of the firm's future. You will gain early responsibility and be supported through close personal supervision and day-to-day coaching complemented by a wide range of training courses. You will undertake four six-month seats which will cover both transactional and contentious work. You may also be seconded to one of our overseas offices or have the opportunity for a client secondment. The interview process includes an assessment session with graduate recruitment followed by an interview with two partners.
