Please describe the interview process at Irwin Mitchell.

The assessment centre was a few hours in the morning. there were only 6 of us, total. The first section was an individual interview with a partner and an associate. It was very friendly and relaxed. Questions mostly revolved around my skills and habits in my previous workplaces. Second part was a written exercise that included writing an email to a supervisor about the positives and negatives of an article we had to read. Third part was listening to a voicemail from a client, taking notes, and then discussing the voicemail (and its possible relevance to the firm) with another partner and associate at the firm. The final part of the day was a casual Q&A with a current trainee.
