Applications open for Summer Vacation Scheme

Fosters are delighted to confirm we are planning to host our annual Summer Vacation Scheme in 2021.

Sadly due to the Coronavirus pandemic we were unable to hold the student event in 2020, but subject to any further restrictions in 2021, we will be going ahead with the scheme this summer.

This is an exciting opportunity for students to gain practical experience working with us in our award-winning practice areas.

We will be offering two-week voluntary placements in our Norwich office for up to four students to work within our Business & Commercial, Personal Injury & Medical Negligence, Dispute Resolution & Litigation and Family & Children departments.

Successful applicants will undertake a variety of tasks including research, working on current client files under supervision, attending client meetings and completing general administrative tasks.

The scheme will run between the 23rd August and 3rd September 2021, and depending on the final applicants and the casework of the participating departments, each student will spend time with at least two different teams. Working hours during these two weeks will be 9am to 5pm, Monday to Friday, excluding Bank Holiday Monday 30th August.

The successful candidates will:

  • Have at least three A Levels at grade B or higher.
  • Be interested in the Legal sector.
  • Be willing to learn new skills.
  • Have excellent attention to detail.
  • Be well organised and self-motivated.
  • Have the ability to stay calm under pressure.
  • Enjoy working as part of a team.
  • Be confident in dealing with the general public.

Whilst our ideal candidates will be in their second year or higher at university or college, we will consider applications made by first years as well. Unfortunately we are unable to accept applications from anyone under the age of 18.
