In keeping with the firm’s pledge to provide more complex and sophisticated client solutions, the scheme encompasses developments in legal technology and new business approaches.
Graduates will undertake four six-month rotations in the following departments: business solutions, commercial management, innovation, legal project management and pricing and resource management.
Two roles will be available in March 2019, followed by a further four starting in September 2019. Recruits will be based in Norton Rose Fulbright’s London office, with opportunities to work with the Innovation Team based at the firm’s Newcastle Hub. The role could also involve shorter placements in one of the firm’s international offices.
David Carter, commercial director, commented: “We are delighted to offer a comprehensive business and legal operations graduate scheme. The scheme reflects the immediate need for new team members, to meet both client and internal demand following the early success of NRF Transform, our global change and innovation programme. The scheme also reflects our commitment to build the teams involved for the long term.”
Matrin McCann, partner, global head of business and global sponsor of NRF Transform commented: “Everything that is exciting about the legal sector at the moment is reflected in this graduate scheme. The delivery of legal services is “transforming” and the leading law firms know that their future success is linked to how they adjust the traditional model. This is a chance for ambitious graduates to join the teams we have in London and in our Newcastle Hub, helping us to deliver a consistently better service to clients.”
