Vacation schemes

Forward planning

On a vacation scheme with Taylor Wessing, you’ll kick-start a legal career at the forefront of the industries of tomorrow. With between 35-40 spaces per year, we’re searching for the brightest sparks of the next generation; the sharp commercial minds that will help us guide clients in radical new industries.

We’ll give you intense training from the first day to the last, and every day will offer something new. The fortnight is structured so that you’ll work with two different practice groups and get involved in some pro bono work, as well as attending networking events, socials, and practice group presentations.

Whilst you learn about the firm and our culture, we’ll be there to support you at every turn, to make sure you get the most from your experience. Our induction programme will introduce you to our partners, our staff, and our business as a whole, and you’ll also be given a buddy amongst the trainees.

At the end of the scheme, we’ll provide you with thorough feedback, to place you in good stead as you start planning for the next stage of your career. Moreover, with 70-80% of our training contracts given to previous vacation schemers, you may find that this vacation scheme is the start of something much bigger; the beginning of a career where you’ll help us define the future of law.
