    I applied through a recruiter. The process took a week. I interviewed at Fletchers Solicitors (Southport, England) in August 2020.

    Interview

    When I applied for the role of Senior Litigation Paralegal at Fletchers, I received a response from Alison Pye (Recruitment Specialist) within the next few days via telephone.

    I was interviewed for the role 3 days later which was a very positive experience as the two Andrew's who conducted the interview were very friendly and reassuring. The interview took place over video call but they made the experience as close to a face-to-face interview as possible.

    After the interview Alison telephoned to make sure I was okay after the interview and asked if I had any further questions or queries. She was able to answer my questions in regards to the business and the structure of the firm. She was incredibly helpful throughout the entire process and helped to put those pre and post interview nerves at ease.

    The whole experience was very quick and reassuring. I cannot wait to begin the next chapter of my career as a paralegal at Fletchers.

    Accepted Offer
    Positive Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied online. The process took a week. I interviewed at Fletchers Solicitors (Southport, England) in March 2020.

    Interview

    The interview was friendly but challenging. The style of questions were unique and not something I had come across in previous interviews.

     The interviewers were very welcoming and started the interview by letting me know about the company and what they could offer me. There were some HR type questions to start and then more formal questions.

    The questions focussed on the company values and were not typical interview questions. There were a couple of technical legal questions and questions about my personality.

    The interview lasted around 1.5 hours.
