Our Vacation Scheme is a great way for you to find out what it will be like to work at Michelmores. We run two, one week vacation placement schemes at our Exeter office each July. The scheme is as much about you getting to know Michelmores as a place to work, as it is about us getting to know you.
Structure of week
You will have the opportunity to spend time in one department for the week, as we aim to give you a real hands-on insight into one area of law and life as a trainee by attending client meetings and dealing with 'real work'.
You will learn about our different departments and areas of work, and meet trainees, partners and lawyers. There are also informal lunches with trainees, which will give you the opportunity to gain a true insight into working here.
During the week you will take part in a series of assessment exercises, including a written exercise, a verbal reasoning test and a group exercise. You will also have a formal training contract interview with a partner and a member of HR.
Although we can't guarantee you a training contract at the end of it, we can guarantee that you will gain an invaluable experience to help shape your future career.
