Interview Process

2014

"I had a vacation scheme interview, a two week vacation scheme and a training contract interview during the scheme. The initial application for the vacation scheme is quite full on and you need to demonstrate a high degree of intelligence, both academic and emotional."

"The interview process consisted of a group task, a CV interview, a scenario interview and a writing task. These were challenging but were used to test our ability to work in the environment in this firm."

"After a morning of interviews I was then offered a trainee contract on the same day. The process was very efficient and partner driven."

"There is a rigorous assessment process with an in-tray exercise, negotiation and CV interview. It's a great test to see who is unflappable and proceeds with the job at hand. Many people get flustered when confronted with a number of tasks, but in reality that is what you will be dealing with. It is a good test to determine who remains calm and articulate under pressure."

"I had an assessment day consisting of interviews, group assessments and written work followed by vacation scheme during which there were further interviews and written exercises."

"Macfarlanes does not however demand or assume a base of legal knowledge or any real knowledge of the City, rather the interview process is designed to assess your core skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking, with a holistic assessment of your ability to digest and understand information quickly, and turn that information into an idea, an argument or a suggestion."
