Hong Kong Summer Scheme

We run a summer scheme in our Hong Kong office for candidates with Chinese capability. Successful applicants will spend two weeks with us, during which you’ll have time in both of our Insurance & Commercial Disputes and Corporate teams to experience different practice areas.

This is as much a chance for us to get to know you as you to know us. During the programme, you’ll take part in our Training Contract assessment, which includes a group discussion, a group presentation and written skills assessments. If you’re successful, you’ll be invited to a motivation interview by a People Resourcing Team member and an Associate.
