The person is applying for top commercial and American firms. Larger firms tend to have a more formal and organised TC structure. I think you are the exception. JSP pointed out there are meant to be some apprenticeships where you cna do the TC on the job, but they are very new and I expect very rare. The OP simply needs to get a TC and it would mae little difference as to when it started. The important thing to tap into is finance. Did they pay for your GDL?(Original post by sydneyfox)
Hi, this is not entirely true. I have started my TC and my LPC doesn't start until 24th September which is in two weeks. I will be doing both at the same time. However it is important to note that my firm is a local firm in a town and not a city firm so this might make a difference.

Not applying - I'm an ex recruiter.
I don't think a subscription to the FT is needed. There are plenty of other free resources you could use that would be suitable. But I might be biased - I find the FT too dry and technical at times.
Main thing about commercial awareness is not learning factual content but analysing the information presented and thinking about why it happened and what potential consequences could be.
