What you'll be doing
During your time with us, you can expect to spend time in two different legal practice groups (one contentious and one non-contentious) being mentored by members of our current secretarial team. Opportunities will also exist to meet employees in other business services teams to gain a full understanding of how business services teams work in a law firm and provide the legal teams with the services they need.
You will be taking part in a variety of workshops and skills sessions, such as a 1:1 CV clinic, a mock interview, and telephone etiquette skills – all of which will help you develop your skills and take ownership of your future.
You'll also be invited to partake in an assessment centre, where you will undertake a few small exercises around proofreading, in-tray work and billing (maths), together with a spelling test and an interview with our secretarial team leaders. You'll find out what you do well and understand what you can do better. Attending the assessment centre could open up potential career opportunities following the completion of your CILEx course.
Lunch will be provided and reasonable travel expenses will be paid.
