A vacation scheme with Bird & Bird is more than just work experience. It’s an opportunity to discover your potential and kick-start your career in law, taking you straight to the heart of a global law firm.
With access to people across the company including partners and our CEO, you’ll have a chance to live and breathe the brand, experiencing the business from the inside out. You’ll also see first-hand the impact of client relationships and how we work seamlessly between 29 offices across Europe, the Middle East, North America, Asia-Pacific and Americas region.
You’ll be working on client projects from the outset: our vacation schemes are designed to strengthen your knowledge and give you an unfiltered look at the way people work on an international level. At the end of each placement we’ll be recruiting the best performers for our training contracts.
But there’s no work without play which is why you’ll experience the Bird & Bird social life too. Get to know the people who may eventually become your colleagues and immerse yourself in the friendly and vibrant culture that makes Bird & Bird, and our people, so unique.
We hold two vacation schemes each year, one in the Spring and one in the Summer. Both schemes are 2 weeks long. There are up to 30 positions available across the two schemes. Please note that law students should apply from their penultimate year onwards, and non-law students should apply from their final year onwards. Graduates can apply at any time.
Spring scheme dates: 28 March – 8 April 2022
Summer scheme dates: 20 June – 1 July 2022
