Very quickly I was familiar with my surroundings, became friends with my fellow vac schemers and really enjoyed the vacation scheme. Don’t let such comfort be the reason for a slip-up!

You often hear stories about how some firms (apparently) instruct restaurant staff to keep note of their vac schemers’ behaviour when there are no firm representatives around. Whether or not this is true, I would always act on the side of caution and be aware of how you present yourself both inside and outside the office.

Frequently Asked Questions

Do you apply for a vacation scheme or a training contract?

If you are unsure whether to apply for a Vacation Scheme or a Training Contract directly, you can watch a repeat of our Facebook Live session where Katie and Paul from our Graduate Recruitment team explain the pros and cons of each option. If playback doesn't begin shortly, try restarting your device.

Is it important to get a vacation scheme?

But vacation schemes are increasingly being utilised by firms to scout out potential candidates for training contracts. So to answer the question, they’re just as important! So I'll definitely get a training contract after my vacation scheme?

How are vacation schemes used in law firms?

Many law firms now use vacation schemes as an extended opportunity to assess a candidate’s suitability for a training contract. Candidates are frequently invited to attend a training contract interview at the end of the scheme as standard. As such, vacation schemes form a central part of the training contract application process.

When do we open for applications for vacation schemes?

Typically we open for applications from September - January for our Vacation Schemes (this includes the opportunity to interview for a Training Contract) and September - May for our Training Contracts.
