Our traineeship selection process is unique – we want to get to know our candidates beyond their impressive set of academic results. In our application form, we ask you to submit a video which is an opportunity for us to get to know you better and what you can bring to the firm as a trainee, as a solicitor, and as a future partner.
If your application form is successful, you will be invited to participate in an interview. This will either be in person or via zoom – depending on where you are based. This will be followed by a shortlist to attend a two-week internship with us which will give you an opportunity to understand more about the firm, our people, and our ambitions – as well as an opportunity for us to get to know you! At the end of your internship, you will then be asked to give a presentation that demonstrates your experience being a part of the Gilson Gray team. This presentation could lead to an offer to join our traineeship so it is a fantastic opportunity to showcase yourself and your experience at Gilson Gray!
Read each question carefully. There is no fixed word limit for each question. Please use your best judgement to gauge the appropriate length and detail your answers should contain.
