How to apply

The application process will consist of the following three stages: Online application form > Video Interview > Assessment Event

This is your chance to tell us more about you. We will also ask you some long answer questions, to find out about your motivations, drive and attributes that you could bring.


  • Pay attention to the word count: it is there for a reason. If we give you 250 words, that’s how many words we believe you need to give us a detailed enough answer.
  • Attention to detail: ask someone to proof read your application. When you’ve spent so much time on it, it can be easy to miss mistakes.
  • Research: do your Dentons research, and be specific. We want to hear what you think makes Dentons unique, and why that is something you are interested in.
  • Stand out: you’ve covered what makes Dentons unique, but we also want to know about you. What makes you different?
