Non-legal Apprenticeship recruitment process

Applicants will need to have completed their A-Levels or equivalent by July 2023. We look for 3 A-Levels at grade BBB and 6 GCSEs at grade A*-C or equivalent, but we can be flexible with these as ultimately we look for the best candidates. Please do not be deterred if your grades are lower than this, we are looking for people who have a strong application form across the board. If you would like to discuss any mitigating circumstances, please get in touch with our early careers team. Candidates should enter their GCSE, predicted A-level (or equivalent) grades on the application form.

We want everyone to feel comfortable and to be able to perform at their best during the recruitment process. If you require any adjustments please email us and we will be happy to discuss this with you further.

If you do not currently have permission to work in the UK please provide full details of how you intend to qualify for this so that we can consider whether or not it is possible for us to progress your application. We will look at each application on a case by case basis. Any offer will be conditional on your right to work in the UK.

The Non-Legal Apprenticeships programme is not available to those who have completed a law or non-law degree.  If you have a degree, please see our Graduates page for information on joining Mishcon de Reya through our Vacation Scheme.
