Jersey Bursary Programme

With offices across Asia, the Caribbean and Europe, Walkers is a leading offshore law firm with a truly international perspective.

As the fastest-growing legal team in the Channel Islands we are constantly looking for talented people who fit the Walkers approach to law: commercial, client-focused and entrepreneurial.

We are looking for students in Jersey who want to be part of our bursary programme for legal roles - our award is for the length of your course and covers:

  • Financial support in quarterly instalments
  • Summer work placements at Walkers with experience across all practice areas
  • A mentor to provide support and guidance
  • Career advice from our experienced HR team as well as lawyers
  • £250 in book vouchers

Our Bursary Scheme is targeted at enthusiastic, talented, proactive students with strong academics.

Applicants are invited from students who will be sitting their A levels in Summer 2020, together with students already at university or undertaking GDL/LPC/Bar school studies.

You will need to submit the following as part of your application:

  • A cover letter which explains why you should be considered for this award, your career aspirations, and why you want to join us
  • Current CV setting out your education and work experience and any other extra-curricular achievements including charitable, sporting and community activities
