In the fourth part of our series on contract management pitfalls, we look at the risks arising out of varying the terms of construction contracts.
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 1-12 July 2019. Applications opened on 5 November 2018 and will close on 8 March 2019. 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. The next open day will be held on 31 January 2019. To apply, please send a copy of your CV and cover letter explaining why you would like to attend to firstname.lastname@example.org.
To apply for 2019, please email a copy of your CV and a covering letter explaining why you would like a placement with us to email@example.com.
