    I have been working at Peninsula full-time (Less than a year)

    Pros

    Fantastic scheme for new graudates. You must be prepared to learn and give 100% as its very fast paced but you recieve so much training and support. Although the training weeks can be intense due to there being so much to learn, every session is engaging and they have all been really interesting. I found that most people who work for Peninsula have worked here for year and years and all seem really happy in their roles which is a good sign for newbies. Considering your not office based you dont feel alone at all and when you are in the office everyone is friendly and approachable. The support from the managers and consultants has been brilliant, they are always checking if we are ok, if we are enjoying it so far or need any extra help. The consultant role is so varied and every visit is interesting. The week goes so quickly and im loving it so far!

    Cons

    If i had to find one thing, not necessarily a con but the training days can be very long with only a 30 minute break and after a good few hours of heavy law topics i sometimes felt a longer break or a couple of 15 minute breaks between sessions might have helped break the day up and get you ready for the next few hours of training.

    Trainee Solicitor Interview

    Anonymous Interview Candidate in Manchester, England
    No Offer
    Negative Experience

    Application

    I applied online. The process took 4 weeks. I interviewed at Peninsula (Manchester, England) in October 2017.

    Interview

    Application online. Phone Interview. Assessment Centre.

    At the Assessment Centre there were three assessors and ten applicants, two of whom already worked at the company. We introduced ourselves with a brief talk. Then there were two brief exercises about what you would do in a certain situation. The only problem was that the two people who worked there already knew the answers as it was what they did. Finally, everyone had to give a thirty second 'elevator pitch' about why they would make a good solicitor. We were sent out while the assessors talked. Then the eight of us who didn't work there were told that we hadn't made it to the second round. The eight of us had taken days of work and had travelled there with no expenses paid.

    Unimpressive.
