The application process is straightforward

Stage 1 – Submit your application via the GetMyFirstJob website. We do not accept applications except via that portal .

You will need:

i. A cv including:

  • A full breakdown of your GCSE and AS level results (including individual module grades and the year they were taken)
  • Details of your predicted A level grades (and the year you propose to take them) or (if you have already taken your A levels) details of the actual grades achieved
  • The full name and contact details of your school referee

ii. A scanned copy of a cover letter from you explaining why you want this apprenticeship opportunity and why you are particularly interested in this opportunity at Jones Day

iii. If requested at stage 4 (below), a scanned reference from your school to confirming your suitability for this apprenticeship and confirming your achieved or predicted A Level grades.

Stage 2 - Application reviewed by BPP apprenticeship team
Once you submit your application, BPP will screen it and make a decision about whether to progress you to telephone interview with them.

Stage 3 - Telephone interview with BPP
If you are successful at the BPP telephone interview, Jones Day will screen your application with a view to deciding whether to progress you to the open morning and interview with Jones Day.

Stage 4 - School reference requested
We will probably request a school reference to help us to make a decision as to whether to invite you to our open morning and interview. It helps if you ensure your school referee is willing and available to respond quickly.

Stage 5 - If successful, you will receive an offer to attend our open morning and Jones Day interview  
If successful, you will be invited to an open morning with other apprentice candidates and a face to face interview with two of our lawyers, which will all take place in our Tudor Street office in London approximately 4 weeks after the closing deadline.

Stage 6 - If successful at the open morning and interview, you will receive an offer to attend our 2-day work experience
If successful on your open morning with us and following your interview, we will invite you to attend 2 days’ work experience in our Tudor Street office in London on a date approximately one week after your open morning and interview. This is your opportunity to try out the tasks you will perform as an apprentice and our opportunity to get to know you. At the end of your work experience, you will have a further interview with two other lawyers. We aim to let you know the outcome of that interview and your application within 2 weeks of the work experience concluding.

Stage 7- If successful at the 2-day work experience, you will receive an apprenticeship offer
We aim to let you know the outcome of your open morning interview and your application to us within 2 weeks of the 2-day work experience concluding.
