Application details and method of selection
This year we're giving you unprecedented access to how we recruit at TLT and exploring how your career could develop with us, through #TLTunpacked.
You'll get access to insights on preparing for interview, an honest look at what to expect from your training programme, and tips on how to hone your skills to give your application the edge.
Follow us on Twitter, Instagram, Vimeo and Facebook for more.
For vacation schemes and training contracts, your first step is to apply on our website. If your application shines, we'll invite you to take an online assessment – nothing frightening, just a way for us to see how you think about things a little more. Then it's assessment centre time. We've designed these to be a great chance not only for us to get to know you, but vice versa too. Throughout the day, there'll be an interview, a presentation and a group exercise.
If you join us for a vacation scheme, your assessment will be built in to the week so you won't need to make a separate training contract application.Apply here careers.tltsolicitors.com/trainees/career-fairs
Firm description and career prospects
We're TLT, a thriving UK top 50 law firm built around the needs of our clients. Just like you, we're ambitious. But we know that ambition alone isn't enough to succeed in this incredibly competitive market. And it's the way we work that keeps us growing from strength to strength. Refusing to be constricted by out-dated attitudes, we have a flexible, collaborative approach to how we do things and a culture of togetherness where fresh ideas are valued, hard work is recognised and everyone can get out every bit as much as they put in.
Since 2002, we've more than tripled in size, opening offices in Belfast, Edinburgh, Glasgow, London and Manchester to add to our Bristol headquarters. We are now over 1000 people strong with an enviable portfolio of large corporates, public institutions and high growth businesses across the UK including RBS, Sainsbury's, Merlin Entertainment, EDF Energy, EE, Greene King and many more. With revenues reaching £74.6m in 2016/17, our ambitious growth plans present exciting opportunities for talented individuals to develop, progress and contribute to our goals, while achieving your own.
If you haven’t already taken them, we’ll cover your GDL and LPC fees and give you a maintenance grant. That way, you can concentrate on making the most of your training contract.
During Easter and summer each year, we run week-long vacation schemes in Bristol, London and Manchester. They're the perfect opportunity for you get a taster of what it's like to be at trainee at TLT. You'll get stuck in to real client work, have the chance to network with lawyers and partners over breakfast seminars and ask existing trainees any niggling questions you have. What's more, we've built an assessment into the week so you won't have to worry about making a separate training contract application.
