Type of opportunity:
First year programme
Osborne Clarke is an award-winning multinational law firm. With 26 global offices we’re proud to say that our influence and impact can be applied almost anywhere. The core sectors we work in all thrive on innovation; digital business, energy, financial services, life sciences, real estate, recruitment and transport. Our sector teams include lawyers from all legal disciplines, effortlessly blending expertise, insight and enthusiasm. Crucially, we think sector-first, organising ourselves around the current affairs and future challenges of the industries we serve, rather than traditional legal practice areas.
Like any private practice, legal expertise is at the heart of everything we do. But what makes us distinctive? For a start, you will get involved in truly fascinating work. The variety of our deals and the diversity of our clients provide an exciting and immersive commercial framework. This is a firm where fresh ideas are highly prized, and we’re never afraid to take a view. It is also firm with a coherent commercial vision, with a clear direction, supported by a compelling sense of purpose and identity. Finally, there’s our culture. When we asked our recent recruits what attracted them to us, they used words like ‘friendly’, ‘inclusive’, ‘open’ and ‘fun’. To our clients we are ‘approachable’, ‘proactive’, ‘understanding’ and ‘formidable’.
Our Insight Scheme
Our Insight Scheme for first-year law and second-year non-law students offers the opportunity to experience life at Osborne Clarke. Through presentations and insight sessions with our Partners and recruitment team, we’ll equip you with the tools you need to apply for a place on our vacation scheme. We'll also give you the opportunity to informally network with our trainees so that you can find out what it's like to train and work at Osborne Clarke.
What we're looking for
We're looking for the qualities that make a great OC lawyer. The ability to listen and learn, a passion to help clients, an interest in the business environment, a team-working ethos, a problem-solving approach, a sense of humour and a knowledge about OC.
Candidates should have achieved, or are expecting to achieve, a 1st or a 2:1 in any discipline. We take applicants’ results in each of their degree modules into account and screen applications in favour of those with stronger ‘A’ level grades. If you’re changing career, we’ll look for evidence of achievement in your previous role.
