I received a vacation scheme offer at the end of January. I replied by email to confirm my acceptance and didn't receive a response (which I understand is normal). The start date is 13th June and I haven't heard anything since. At what point should I email just to check everything's okay/ask if they need any additional information/documents etc?

I would email them now and just ask if there is any further information you need to provide to them ahead of the scheme starting.

So your advice worked, @Jessica Booker ! I'm officially a Future Trainee Solicitor at Baker McKenzie. Wahoo!
Wow - that was quick! I am assuming this relates to your post about being asked to be considered for a direct TC process from last week?

Ultimately that is amazing news and a massive congratulations to you!

I have submitted a vacation scheme application for HCR and it was only uploading a CV. has anyone got experience of their recruitment process? And what the next steps may be
Last year I think they reviewed cv and cover letter and then you got told if you made it onto the scheme or not, there wasn’t anything else but you really need to stand out from the crowd! - however there vac scheme last year was virtual so I don’t know if the firm will do it in person this time round

    Yes it was! I just asked. They didn’t even ask me where the other offer was from or interview me or anything. They met up internally and issued me the formal offer within a week!
