“HeadStart into Training Contract Applications” and “HeadStart Into Vacation Scheme Applications” will give Aspiring Solicitors members a unique insight into how graduate recruiters select candidates for interview and assessment centre at multiple locations across the UK.

Written and delivered by former graduate recruitment managers, each event will give students honest advice to help identify strengths and weaknesses.

Find out what is really meant by competency based selection and how you can showcase your skills and experiences to firms at all stages in the process.

Through participating in and considering bespoke practical application form and interview scenarios, our workshops will provide a genuine insight into the types of assessments and criteria you will encounter and be judged on, and what you can do in advance to prepare.

Successful students who were in your position only a few months ago, qualified solicitors and former graduate recruitment managers will be on hand to offer advice.
