“The very first day I arrived at Rollits to start day one of the Vacation Scheme everyone made me feel like I was part of the team.”
We run a series of very successful and popular two week vacation placements in June and July each year in our Hull office.
Unlike some firms, we do not believe that work experience should involve photocopying or making tea! You will work on real client matters alongside our trainees, solicitors and lawyers by getting involved in drafting documents, conducting research, meeting clients and going to court.
Our programme is organised to allow you to spend time in each of the firm's core departments to experience the sort of work we do. We structure our placements like a mini training contract, and a detailed timetable will be issued to you at the start of your placement.
You will participate in group exercises and attend a range of informal presentations to learn how Rollits operates as a business. At the end of the fortnight you will be required to make a presentation to members of the firm and your work experience colleagues. And we don't forget about the social side of things so you will be given the opportunity to meet our lawyers and trainees outside of work in a social setting.
A work experience placement at Rollits is an excellent opportunity to gain a true insight into our firm, its culture and its people. The programme we run is an important part of our recruitment process and as such we aim to ensure that your experience will be practical, informative and as true to life as a Trainee Solicitor as possible. The more you put into the placement the more you will get out of it; its purpose is as much for you to assess us as it is for us to assess you!
Who do we want?
You must be available for two weeks in June and July 2019. At that time you should have completed the second year of a law degree, or the third year of an academic non-law degree, and be looking to start a training contract in September 2021.
You must have the equivalent of three grade Bs at A level, and, if you have not already done so, you must be on target to attain a 2:1 or above in your degree.
Above all we are looking for candidates with the right attitude. We expect our staff to be motivated and enthusiastic, and we look for these qualities in our work experience students.
