Career Coaching for Training Contract & Vacation Scheme Candidates

A training contract interview

- Matt Oliver. Founder & Senior Coach, The Legal Careers Group.

My student & graduate lawyer coaching programmes are built on 20+ years experience in the legal profession & detailed knowledge of the training contract recruitment process.

I have helped junior lawyers from the UK & overseas to secure a training contract. They regularly say the work we did together gave them the missing knowledge and skills to secure a training contract.

I have been mentoring students & graduates on their careers for over 15 years. Along the way, I set up this popular law career website.

As well as landing my own training contract many moons ago, I know exactly what the recruiters are looking for from you to succeed in today's competitive job market.


Receiving rejections and don't know why?

A frustrated applicant?

Uncertain what the recruiter wants to read or hear?

Struggle to decide which work examples to include?

Keen to progress your legal career?

Want to avoid the common mistakes?


"Much to my surprise, last Monday I received an offer of a training contract with [xxxxxx]! Thanks so much for the interview coaching session, the role you played in my preparation was completely invaluable.\"



"My experience with Matt has been very positive. He is very personable and professional and will tailor his advice to your personal situation. I have found his advice on how to prepare for competency interviews particularly useful and believe it to have been material in securing a training contract with a leading City firm."
