As we roll into summer I thought it would be a good time to remind you that Brunel Jobs Board often advertises legally related postions. Below is an example of the type of role you’re likely to see on there. Make sure to pay attention to the application instructions, which can be very specific. Failure to follow the instructions is the quickest way to get your application put straight into the bin.
Don’t forget you’ll need your student number to access the vacancies and, as always, I’m here to help if you need any guidance on making your application.
