2019 scheme details


This year, in collaboration with Standard Life Aberdeen, we are offering up to 5 work placements, open to those who have experience in areas of law in which we specialise, have previous experience working in private sector and are looking to re-enter the legal profession after an extended career break. 

We will be launching this programme in Scotland from 30 September to 11 October 2019. They will be unpaid placements and successful applicants will be based at the Edinburgh office. We will place the successful candidates into suitable teams and provide them with ongoing support during and after their time with us, including an allocated "buddy" at a similar or more senior level. 

Please note this programme enables participants to get actively involved rather than simply observe lawyers at work. 

This is a great opportunity to:

  • re-enter the corporate world and undertake meaningful work; 
  • build your network;
  • benefit from technical and soft skills development;
  • develop your confidence in a supportive environment;
  • update your CV with some current work experience;
  • learn more about the option of an 'in-house' legal career by spending time with Standard Life Aberdeen.

How to apply

To apply, please email us your letter of application and current CV.

Application deadline: 5pm on Monday 15 July 2019.   

Please note we are only able to consider those who have experience in areas of law in which we specialise and have previous experience working in private practice.
