Early Careers Opportunities 2023

Job description

Would you like to develop key skills needed for employment and get your first insight into life at a transatlantic law firm?

Work experience is an invaluable tool and we recognise the importance of gaining employability skills to kick start your career.

Here at Womble Bond Dickinson, we offer a range of opportunities to help you develop your skills and gain experience, introducing you to the world of a commercial work and helping with career choices.

Our programmes are tailored to different levels of education so whether you're in key stage four and studying towards your GCSE's or in key stage five and working towards your A-levels or equivalent qualifications, there will be a programme for you.

To get started, visit our online virtual work experience programme, Forage.

Forage is a virtual law programme that you can complete in your own time, introducing you to roles in law, supporting you with developing a personal statement and an introduction to some law based tasks. This is available to all students and a great addition to your CV.

Throughout the year we also run a selection of office based and virtual workshops, webinars, networking sessions and work placements so you can find out more about careers at Womble Bond Dickinson, develop your skills and have an opportunity to meet people from across our business services and legal teams.

We also work with a number of schools and organisations throughout the UK, delivering skills workshops, attending career events and offering work experience programmes which include PRIME and Pathways to Law.

If you would like to hear about our programmes, sign up to our Early Talent Community for updates about new opportunities as they become available.
