Remember to cite LawCareers.Net on your application form if you apply to TLT LLP.
This year we're giving you unprecedented access to how we recruit at TLT and exploring how your career could develop with us, through #TLTLive.
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.
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.
