At Womble Bond Dickinson, we offer a range of opportunities to help you develop your skills and gain experience, introducing you to the world of a commercial work and helping with career choices.

Work experience

Our programmes are tailored to different levels of education so whether you're in key stage 4 and studying towards your GCSEs or in key stage 5 and working towards your A-levels or equivalent qualifications, there will be a programme for you.

To get started, visit our online virtual work experience programme, Forage.

Forage is a virtual law programme that you can complete in your own time, introducing you to roles in law, supporting you with developing a personal statement and an introduction to some law based tasks. This is available to all students and a great addition to your CV.

Throughout the year we also run a selection of office based and virtual workshops, webinars, networking sessions and work placements so you can find out more about careers at Womble Bond Dickinson, develop your skills and have an opportunity to meet people from across our business services and legal teams.

We also work with a number of schools and organisations throughout the UK, delivering skills workshops, attending career events and offering work experience programmes which include PRIME and Pathways to Law.

"I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Womble Bond Dickinson and I feel I gained an overall understanding what it is like to work in a human resources department."

"Being involved in so many different things was so exciting and allowed me to learn a great deal."

"It was actually my first experience of law and I enjoyed it so much that I ended up pursuing the profession. Although you were no doubt just going about your day, you made a big effort to explain things to me and make me feel welcome. All of your colleagues went out of their way to make my time at the firm productive and interesting. An everyday experience for all of you actually ended up changing my life."

"I leave Womble Bond Dickinson surer than ever of my goals for the future, and incredibly grateful to have been given this invaluable opportunity."
