Our vacation scheme 

We recruit our future trainee solicitors from our spring and summer vacation schemes only. In 2022, we will have up to ten people in total on our spring and summer vacation schemes.  

You will sit in two different teams, with both a partner and an associate and gain hands-on experience, giving you the opportunity to undertake real, meaningful work and showcase your potential.  

We hope that by the end of the two weeks, you will have met most of our people at our vacation scheme-specific workshops, seminars and social events. You will be supported throughout your time with us, both by a partner mentor, a trainee or associate buddy and our graduate recruitment team  

How to apply

From autumn 2021, we are looking for those who can start their training contract in September 2024.  We recruit solely from our vacation schemes, held in spring and summer.  In 2022, we will have up to ten people in total on our spring and summer vacation schemes.  

The application deadline is 20 December 2021 and we recruit on a rolling basis.  Our application process has four stages: online application form, video interview, virtual written analytical exercise and partner interview.  At all stages, applicants will be informed of their outcome by email, in a timely manner.  

Please go to our website for more information and to apply.  For any questions, please connect with Gemma Baker, Graduate Recruitment Manager, at 


Our people work in small, nimble teams on high quality matters, so it is important that you are motivated, collaborative and able to pick things up quickly as you will receive a great breadth of work from the outset. 

Willkie London has grown considerably over the past five years, and over 50 per cent from 2017 alone. With this in mind, we are looking for self-starters who want to contribute to a dynamic, growing workplace, and who have a genuine interest in Willkie and our clients.  


We welcome applicants from all universities and degree disciplines. We are looking for consistently strong academic achievement, with a 2.1 at undergraduate level. 

Willkie is proud to use Rare’s Contextual Recruitment System.  Partnering with Rare means social mobility measures and educational data are embedded into our recruitment process. This means we will better understand your academic achievements.
