On 10th January, Slaughter and May held a information session for Year 12 students about their work placement opportunities. 25 students attended the session to discover what experience is available to them over the Easter and summer holidays, how they can apply and how it can give them an advantage in both applying to universities and gaining employment. Slaughter and May are a leading international law firm who have worked closely with the school for a number of years.
The information sessions saw the 25 students rotate between tables of professionals from various teams such as legal, accounts, human resources, IT, business development and commercial/facilities to hear more about the placement roles on offer and ask questions. All interested students will have the opportunity to take part in a CV workshop as well as an interview skills workshop before applying for roles with a cover letter and CV. The recruitment process and placement is designed to help students develop the skills and experience they need to access both university and employment, and make a success of the opportunity.
