Calling all NQs!!
BCL Legal recently kicked off the 2017 NQ season by hosting the first NQ Talk in conjunction with MTSG on Wednesday 15 February 2017.
It was a fantastic event with over 75 MTSG members in attendance. We were honoured to be joined by Nick Stubbs, Commercial partner at Eversheds Sutherland, Lee Ashwood, Senior Associate in Employment at Eversheds Sutherland and Mark Hough, Corporate Lawyer and Director at EY, who all offered their own unique insights. These included why they chose the practice areas in which they qualified, and what they look for in a newly qualified solicitor. We have been very touched by all the positive feedback we received on the event and content, and glad we can help to guide you as you negotiate your way up to qualification.
We are fortunate to have a very experienced team at BCL Legal who enjoy working with junior lawyers; we have extensive market knowledge to pass on to you in addition to up to date NQ salary information. Some people love being in an interview situation, whereas others start getting nervous at the thought of being in an interview and again interviewing coaching is an aspect of my job that I really enjoy. The right approach, research and questions can really make you stand out in the process and make you the one that is ultimately successful in securing the role.
If you missed the event, or even if you were attendance but would like a tailored discussion as to choosing a practice area, CV and interview tips and also the current legal market, please do get in touch with me on 0161 819 7477 or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org as we would love to help you secure the best possible newly qualified role.
