Work experience placements

We have a number of different opportunities for anyone interested in gaining hands-on work experience at Co-operative Legal Services. Our work placements are available in our Bristol and London offices and last for one week. During this week long placement you have the opportunity to spend time in all areas of the business. This provides you with a snapshot of what it is like to work in Legal Services and in the Co-operative. You will see how the business is structured and how important our values and customer service are.

Our work placements are suitable for anyone whether you are leaving school or college, graduating or studying post graduate courses. You may even be thinking about changing profession or returning to work place. The placements are designed to give you a broad overview of our business so you can identify what your potential career could look like.

We are also in the process of establishing links.
