Vacation Scheme – New to 2018 – Now closed, this will run again over Easter 2019.
We are delighted to announce that we will be running a vacation scheme in April 2018. This is a great opportunity for you to really get to know the firm, our culture and people.
We will be running two one week vacation schemes during the month of April, week commencing 9th April and week commencing 16th April. To qualify for a vacation scheme placement in 2018, you should be applying for a training contract to begin in 2020.
During the week you hear about each department via daily sessions from senior fee-earners and Partners. You will hear from our Human Resources team and trainees who will tell you more about life as a trainee and the firm as a whole. It is a great opportunity to get a real insight into the type of work you might be asked to do as a trainee as you will be sitting in the departments getting exposure to real work and attending client meetings where possible. You’ll be invited to lunch with the trainees, there will be the chance to visit the courts one morning and join us at our informal Friday weekly drinks in the office.
Over the course of the week you will take part in a group and individual exercise. For those who have successfully completed the tasks, you will be invited to attend a formal interview with Partners which will take place after the vacation scheme.
Please click here to apply for the vacation scheme. The deadline date for application forms is 31 January 2018. Remember it’s as much about you getting to know us, as it is about us getting to know you!
If you are unable to make our vacation scheme, come along to our Open Evening. We will be hosting an Open Evening in Autumn 2018 for candidates applying for a training contract to start in September 2020 and 2021. The Open Evening will provide an insight to the firm’s graduate recruitment process and the culture of the firm.
The aim of the day is for candidates to further their understanding of Memery Crystal, and will provide an opportunity to meet the Head of Graduate Recruitment, our fee earners, trainees and the HR team.
To apply for a place at the Open Evening, please tell us (in no more than 250 words) why you would like the opportunity to attend our Open Evening. Please send this via email to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
Update: We have closed our recruitment process for 2020 trainee recruitment early as we have managed to fill our spaces internally. However, we still have one remaining space for 2020, which we will recruit for during our Vacation scheme over Easter 2019. We will also be looking to recruit for the 2021 training contract at this time. The application for our Easter Vacation scheme will go live in early November.

- Have good academics (good GCSE’s, 320 UCAS points at A level and a 2:1 degree)
