By selecting this option, you are applying for a place on our Vacation Scheme as well as a Training Contract with VWV.
Unless you are currently working at the firm, or have previously completed a placement with us, this is the option that you should choose. This is the Bristol application and you would be based in our office on Narrow Quay.
The deadline for this application is 20 January 2019, and our Assessment Days will be running on 12 and 26 March 2019. If successful at Assessment Day you will then be invited to attend our Vacation Scheme which will run in June.
Our Vacation Scheme provides you with an excellent opportunity to get to know the firm. You will spend time in a variety of departments, completing tasks and developing your skills. You will also complete activities with some of our Business Support teams, ensuring that you get a really good feel for the way in which the firm operates.
During your week, you will also have your interview for a Training Contract. This is your opportunity to tell us why you would like to be a Trainee at VWV.
