Winter Vacation Scheme 2020

Still recruiting throughout COVID‑19

Job description

Students spend two weeks with the firm; each week they are able to experience a different department, sharing an office with partners, associates and trainees.

The work will include attending meetings, drafting documents and letters and carrying out research. We extend our internal seminar programme to include a number of talks, case studies and negotiating exercises specifically for students to give an authentic taste of a City lawyer's work. The timetable also includes a City tour, plenty of social activities including softball and the option to be involved in sporting activities such as mixed hockey, netball and football. There are also working lunches and informal evening events.

Diversity and Inclusion and Corporate Social Responsibility:

Our market leading Diversity and CSR Programmes are bold, exciting and ever expanding. Creating an inclusive workplace where people can be themselves and reach their full potential is a key business priority for Travers Smith. Our focus on diversity and social responsibility is integral to how we serve our clients, develop our people and play a leadership role in our communities.

Highlights include:

  • Refugees at Home
  • Stonewall
  • Giving Time
  • Legal Advice Centres
  • A4ID
  • Brighter Futures Zambia

What we are looking for

  • The firm looks for people who can combine academic excellence with plain common sense
  • Determined, articulate and able to think on their feet
  • Self-motivated and have a healthy sense of humour
  • A law degree is not a necessity – just over half the trainees who joined last year came from a non-law background.
