WeWork Summer Work Experience Programme 2022

The opportunity

WeWork is offering two Aspiring Solicitors members a two week full time summer work experience placement with their legal team from Tuesday 5 July – Friday 15 July 2022.

  • Introduction to WeWork and WeWork’s different in-house legal functions
  • Gaining hands-on legal experience with WeWork’s legal team
  • Group sessions and workshops with members of the legal team
  • Employability skills and networking sessions
