International Women’s Day is not just another event in the calendar. Striving for social equality is a daily mission as we work towards building a society of gender equality.
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 28 June-9 July 2021. Applications open on 2 November 2020 and close on 5 March 2021. 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.
Virtual open day
We hold an open day each year for anyone thinking of training at ACS. The next open day is Thursday 28 January 2021. To apply, please send a copy of your CV and cover letter explaining why you would like to attend to email@example.com. Applications close on 11 January 2021.
In view of the COVID-19 outbreak and following recent Government advice, we have made the difficult decision to cancel our 2020 work experience programme. As you can understand, the safety of our candidates, employees and community is a priority. We will continue to review the situation closely and those who wish to apply for work experience will have an opportunity to do so next year.
