What are the Best and Worst things about your job?

The calibre of work and clients you are involved with from the start.
The commute in (not so much firm-specific)
The IT systems

Current salary: £49,000 - £51,000
What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Try to make it personal to the firm and the applicant. If you can replace the firm name with another and it still makes sense, it is not personal enough. If you are speaking generically about interests (in practice areas, sectors, firm etc.) with no relation as to why these are specific to YOU (i.e. linking it to volunteering/experience you had, project you did, hobbies etc.), then it is not personal enough.
Do you have any interview tips?
Be authentically you. At this stage, everyone on paper is equally as qualified as eachother with good grades, good written manner, good level of understanding/interest with the firm and profession. To stand out, you need to let your personality shine through and remember that you are speaking to a person on the other side of the table/screen, who will be looking for people who they can see themselves enjoying to work with. Be smiley, chatty, relaxed (but also make sure your understanding of why law/firm/you is equally as strong as was in application stage).
