Work Experience/Vacation Scheme

Are you interested in a legal career? If you’re an undergraduate, you can apply for one of our three, one-week summer placements at our Chelmsford office. It’s a golden opportunity to experience our culture, business and people, and find out what it’s like to work with us.

Vacation Scheme – Gepp & Sons Solicitors LLP

A week’s vacation scheme at Gepp & Sons will give you an insight into the legal profession before applying for legal jobs once you have left University.

If you are successful in obtaining a placement with Gepp & Sons, you will spend a week in the summer visiting each of our six departments and working alongside our Partners, Fee Earners and Trainees.

Whilst spending time in each department, you will be provided with practical tasks, which once completed you will receive feedback on.   

At the end of the week, you will be asked to give a 10 minute presentation in front of senior staff on one aspect of the Law that you learnt during the week. They will also ask you for feedback on your week's placement so that we can continue to improve the value of the placement.

During the placement, you will have the opportunity to have lunch with two of our Trainees who will be able to tell you what it is like being a Trainee in a busy firm of Solicitors.

Who should apply?

You must have started an undergraduate degree.  You don't have to be studying Law but a genuine interest in a future career in the Legal profession would be an advantage.

When to Apply?

Applications for the 2018 summer vacation scheme should be submitted no later than 30 April 2018. You must complete our online application form and Diversity Questionnaire and send it to with your CV and a covering letter.

Gepp & Sons will then select three successful applicants, you may be asked to attend an interview.
