At Forbes our employees are our most important asset. The success, continued development and growth of the firm can be attributed to our employees.
Forbes offers a limited number of unpaid vacation placements within the Blackburn or Preston offices from students' second year onwards.
Vacation Placements last for a period of 1 to 2 weeks during July and August, and during that time, students will gain the opportunity to shadow a solicitor in one or more practice areas within the firm. The aim of the placement is to give students a real experience of the world of work in a busy law firm.
Following a successful application, you will be invited to join us for a pre-vacation scheme lunch to, again, meet others undertaking the scheme with you, supervisors and current trainees. A summer vacation scheme is your opportunity to experience life as it really is at the firm. This offers real involvement and is essentially a mini-training contract. It is real work: we value your opinion and use your input. You will be one of the team, participating in group exercises, attending presentations and meeting clients. Generally seeing life as it would be in a contract. It is a great way of getting to know us and seeing our work first hand.
The process is similar to that of Training Contract Applications and students who wish to seek Training Contracts are encouraged to apply.
Interested candidates should apply to the Graduate Recruitment Manager via the online application form before 30 April 2020 to be considered for the summer 2020 scheme.
Due to the number of applications received, if you have not heard from us by the 31 May, you should assume that your application has been unsuccessful.
