Job description

Legal services are changing. The driving force behind this change at Norton Rose Fulbright is our award winning global change and innovation program, NRF Transform, which delivers traditional legal services more effectively and efficiently, and provides entirely new solutions to our clients’ most pressing business problems.

This new era requires lawyers to embrace data and technology in new ways through working alongside experienced business professionals spanning strategy, technology, project management, process engineering and legal design.

To make all this happen we need a new generation of talented graduates with open, enquiring minds to shape the future of law and of our business.

The scheme sits within Norton Rose Fulbright’s Legal Transformation team which is responsible for driving innovation within the firm. The scheme is built around four six-month rotations through the following teams:

  • Applied Technology - the team building complex solutions to bespoke client or industry legal needs
  • Commercial Management - the team promoting our legal transformation offerings both internally and to clients
  • Innovation - The team reviewing new tools and ideas for the delivery of legal work
  • Legal Operations Consulting - The team advising clients on how to manage their in-house legal operations effectively
  • Digital Solutions - The team developing client-focused, tech based solutions
  • Legal Project Management - The team managing our efficient and effective delivery of matters and projects
  • Pricing – The team working with partners to achieve optimal pricing and commercial arrangements

What we are looking for

An impeccable academic record and intellectual rigour are prerequisites. We expect successful candidates to have at least AAB at A level (or equivalent) and be on track for a 2.1 (or equivalent). Any academic degree is acceptable.

You’ll have an enquiring mind, strong interpersonal skills, and the motivation to make constant progress. You’ll never stop pushing yourself forward, grasping every opportunity – both at home and abroad – that our firm has to offer. You’ll be interested in business too, and keen to build relationships within a firm that’ll help you make progress with purpose.
