Students get second stab at Nabarro’s 2007 intake

Nabarro’s 2007 intake” />Nabarro has launched a new graduate recruitment initiative to target would-be trainees who have missed the application deadline for 2007 entry.

The firm has reopened the application process for this September’s intake, and those interested now have until 13 April to submit an application online.

Trainee resources manager Jane Drew said: “Because we’re expanding, the firm simply had additional vacancies for 2007 and we’ve had to think of new, innovative ways to attract top people.”

As well as reopening the application process for 2007 entry, seven trainees who were originally due to join Nabarro in September 2008 have had their start dates moved forward and will join the firm in September this year. They will be accompanied by a minimum of 14 candidates selected from the firm’s 2007 summer scheme in London.

The initiative was launched after the firm made a decision to expand and take on additional trainees after the original application deadline of 31 July 2006 had passed.

To promote the initiative the firm’s recruitment team visited the College of Law’s Guildford branch on 29 March. The team also paid visits to the college’s branches at Moorgate and Store Street in the City earlier last month, as well as to BPP Law School’s Waterloo site two weeks ago.

Further visits have been proposed for Nottingham Law School and the law faculty of the University of the West of England.

As reported by The Lawyer (5 March), Nabarro is also designing an alternative career path for the 2007-08 financial year.
