Please describe the interview process at Browne Jacobson.

There is an online application, online tests, telephone interview, and assessment centre. The assessment day was structured well. There was a group exercise, case study, written exercise, and individual interview. I felt everyone was friendly, and supportive.

What advice would you give to future applicants for the Browne Jacobson interview?

The telephone interview was competency based. I was also asked why law, why the firm, and what differentiates it from its competitors. For the assessment centre, the best advice is to be yourself. Its important to let your personality shine through, and let the assessors know who you really are. Be confident, and ask loads of questions. The case study and written exercise need to be structured well, and it is important to pay attention to detail. The interview was mainly competency based, so preparing good examples beforehand will help. It will help to read the key competencies on the firm’s website, and think about how your skills/experiences match with those.
