What we look for
We’re looking for future lawyers who look a little deeper; who see the intricate legal details that shape our world, and who pursue their ambition to be part of that.
That means, we’ll usually look for outstanding academic performance as a baseline. Most candidates are on course for (or already have) at least a 2:1. That said, if you can demonstrate that you’re a strong match for us in your career motivations, we do consider candidates who don’t quite meet these requirements.
That’s because for us, a solid academic performance isn’t everything. We’re also looking for something more. Here are the key competencies we test for:
You understand global commercial issues, and you can see how the smallest news headline might affect big businesses.
You’re driven. You never give up, and you pursue every opportunity wholeheartedly, actively seeking success at every turn.
You form relationships that last, because you enjoy working with all kinds of colleagues – and they with you.
Your logical reasoning helps you tackle any problem, big or small.
You’re a meticulous planner and organiser. Circumstances might change, but you stay prepared and on track to deliver – no matter the task at hand.
You think creatively, you communicate clearly, and you don’t settle for what’s always been done if there’s a better way forward.
