What hours do you actually work, on average?
What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?
Look carefully at the core values of the firm and make sure that you demonstrate as best you can why you would be a good fit.
I considered the values and then set about gaining experience and undertaking roles at university to demonstrate in my application that I was already carrying out the firm's core values. For example I joined the charities committee at university and I joined one of the Irwin Mitchell Schemes to get involved.
The firm is interested in you as a person, so be sure to show your personality and you hobbies and interests. Sports and hobbies can be a great way to demonstrate key qualities that make a desirable candidate.
Do you have any interview tips?
During the interview, my best advice would be to be yourself. I attended many interviews during my second year of university. I prepared much in the same way, for each firm, researching the firm and being as well read as possible. It was not until my interview at Irwin Mitchell that I understood that it really is about finding the firm that is the right fit for you.
Do not be afraid to show your personality. The focus is more on recruiting people who will be part of the team and work within the ethos of the firm, rather than the grades achieved in exams.
The questions I was asked were largely competency based. Be prepared with examples where you have shown good customer care or dealt with an issue etc.
