Industry: Law Department: Corporate M&A Job Title: Trainee Solicitor

What are the best and worst things about your job?

The people and support.
A support network is available from the first day that you join the firm. In addition to the pro-active graduate team, you are assigned a Trainee Buddy, an Associate Supervisor and a Partner Mentor. This not only gives you some friendly faces to look out for in the office but is representative of the collaborative (and by no means hierarchical) workplace with people from all levels in the firm ready to support your career and personal development.

Application Advice:

Attend networking + presentation events, research specific things about the firm, appear enthusiastic.

Interview Advice:

Be enthusiastic, don't be afraid to take a moment to consider answers, study general commercial knowledge.

Questions included 'why law?', 'why this firm?', 'what would you speak about if given the chance to speak at Speaker's Corner?', 'why a solicitor and not a barrister', 'what issues would you consider when setting up a new company'.

Application Advice:

A trainee in any city silver circle law firm needs to be diligent, resilient and willing to learn. In BCLP particularly, I think that being personable goes a long way. Whilst there is no 'BCLP type', something that we all have in common is the fact that we are confident, friendly and driven in our career aspirations.

Interview Advice:

Be yourself. The company is not looking for a corporate robot, they are looking for willing and able individuals.

Application Advice:

Tailor it specifically to BCLP as much as possible. Try to get as much relevant work experience (and transferable skills) as you can before applying.

Interview Advice:

Research the firm, and the person interviewing you, as much as possible in advance. Try to think of it as more of a two-way conversation than an interview i.e. an opportunity for you to find out about the firm as much as them finding out about you.

Application Advice:

Know more about the work the firm does than the 'big-ticket' deals like the Walkie-Talkie.

Interview Advice:

I haven't heard of anyone getting totally grilled, so don't worry about that. Have a good idea of why you want to work here and link it to something unique about this particular firm.

Application Advice:

Apply early. Don't wait until the end of the application period.
Obtain experience first - especially in the area you are interested in.
If you can, always apply to the Vacation scheme over straight Training contract.
Make each application bespoke to the firm - don't copy and paste applications.
Decide what you want to go into then apply to those firms, that way your choice of applications won't seem random to an interviewer.
Proof-read your applications then proofread again. Then proofread some more. Before printing them out and proofreading again.

Interview Advice:

Be on time, smart, and polite.
Work out your angle - what is your USP. For example, you are applying to a banking firm and you absolutely love banking and have obtained experience working in finance law - make sure you emphasize this.
Rather than trying to read the FT every single day and trying to be prepared to know everything in response to a 'commercial awareness' question - focus on a couple of key areas in the market and know everything to do with it. In an interview, you can return to your key areas such as cyber security, or Brexit.
When you have finished what you are saying stop talking. Don't wait for the interviewer to stop you. Be concise.
