Successful vacation scheme applicants will be invited to attend one of our assessment days. We hope to run our assessment days in-person in 2022 but will continue to review Covid-19 guidelines to see whether this will be possible. During the day you will be assessed for the vacation scheme, taking part in a group exercise and a written exercise, followed by an interview with a senior solicitor and one of our partners. 

Application blind and contextual recruitment

We want to recruit the best candidates regardless of their background or where they were educated. The majority of our assessment processes for both our vacation schemes and training programmes are scored application blind. We also use a contextual recruitment tool to understand each applicant's achievements in the context in which they have been gained. We understand that not every candidate's achievements look the same on paper and we are a firm that believes passionately in meritocracy and diversity.

Macfarlanes is unlike any other law firm - we expect you to use the assessments as a chance to build your understanding of us and what makes us different, just as we see it as a chance to gain an understanding of you.
