    Interview process

    I was interviewed by a senior member of the legal recruitment team, who previously worked in the city as a lawyer. He asked several key questions surrounding my ambitions to orogress, why their firm and the training that could be offered. It was a real challenge as the atmosphere was very intense and extensive preparation about the company is required. Mostly questions will be drawn from your CV yet I would recommend checking the culture of the firm as they are very corporate before arriving to see if it would be the correct fit.

    Most difficult question

    What is the average day in the life of a 2 year qualified consultant with this firm?

    Interview tips

    Know your CV, understand the legal sector of recruitment and what makes it different, the legal sector is much more fast paced in a lot of regards and you need to be able to be comfortable conversing with some top performing people on the city, if you don't have the confidence to do that then this isn't the job for you, dress smart, have a good answer for exactly why London and this sector. This interview is very intense however with the correct preparation you can get through it! I was very nervous going in and I think they picked up on that but the conversation began to run smoothly after a while. It's just about being able to explain exactly why you want to do the role and being confident that you have the right personality to succeed.

    Experiences at the assessment centre

    A large majority of the interview consisted of competency based questions and questions such as: why London? What makes Taylor Root different etc.
