Hi

I've got an interview for a vac scheme at V&E coming up, just wondering if anyone who has taken part in one can offer any tips as to what to expect? I've just been told it's about 30 minutes long and I have to give a 5 minute presentation at the start. Advice from someone who has been there would be very much appreciated!

Hi!
If it's the same as last year then you get a case study and then a presentation on what your thoughts were for that. Pretty standard really for law firms and relatively straightforward.
Good luck! Everyone is really lovely there though.

Hello! I have a vac scheme interview coming up and was just wondering if it was mainly about the case study or were there competency based questions as well? Also did they pick apart CV/ask you about random story in economy?

Also, does anyone know how many people get interviewed per places on the vac scheme?

Can't remember what they asked sorry, it was nearly a year ago. Was brief and focused on me, what I enjoyed at university and my extra -curriculars. I asked them a lot about how certain current affairs would affect them and that seemed impressed.

Two VS per week for about two months in the summer but no idea how many interviewed for a VS.

Hey thank you so much for responding. Is there anything that you can possibly remember from last year? And about the presentation was it something that required previous knowledge do you remember what you had to come up with? Its my first ever interview and I am really stressing out here so any advice will be appreciated

Sorry but I really don't think it fair on everyone to give you more than I've said.

I understand you're nervous about it but it's really not too dreadful and they are lovely (Even when they didn't give me a TC after the VS, so they must be!).

They will talk you through what you have to do. Just make sure you sound keen, smile and it'll be over before you know it.
I wish you luck.

Well to be fair this is not a private conversation so your answer can be read by everyone and anyone who is interested enough to search for information. But anyway, I understand. Thank you.
