From 6 April 2020, the practice direction that governs statements of truth for witness statements and statements of case is changing.
In view of the covid-19 outbreak and following the recent government advice, we have made the difficult decision to pause the selection process for our summer vacation scheme. As you can understand, the safety of our candidates, employees and community is a priority. We are fully committed to ensuring a positive candidate experience and investing in the growth of our future talent. We will continue to review the situation closely and will be in touch with our applicants as soon as we can.
If you would like to spend some time at Anthony Collins Solicitors, in order to understand the work that we do and meet the people who do it, a vacation scheme may be just the right opportunity for you.
You will spend two weeks with us, splitting your time between two departments. We will assign you a trainee as a buddy, and a fee earner as a mentor and assessor. During this time you will have had the opportunity to be involved in the work that we do and we will provide you with constructive feedback at the end of the two weeks.
Our vacation scheme will run between 29 June-10 July 2020. Applications open on 4 November 2019 and will close on 6 March 2020. You will need to apply via the vacancy page. The selection criteria to apply is the same as our training contract.
If your application is successful, we will invite you to a psychometric testing session and an interview.
We hold an open day each year for anyone thinking of training at ACS. We will advertise the next date as soon as it is confirmed. To apply, please send a copy of your CV and cover letter explaining why you would like to attend to email@example.com.
We offer work experience opportunities in a variety of departments. To apply, students aged 17 or over should send a copy of their CV and covering letter explaining why they want to do work experience at ACS, to firstname.lastname@example.org.
