1. Who can we help?
Dandi welcomes applications from all backgrounds - we particularly encourage aspiring solicitors from non-advantaged backgrounds in the Legal profession to apply, including those that are:
- BAME (Black, Asian or Minority Ethnic), LGBTQ+ or disabled
- Socially mobile (attended state school, first generation to attend university or from a low socio-economic household, amongst other factors)
You could have been held back by personal circumstances that are not always apparent on your CV. You may have encountered financial difficulties during university, cared for a loved one whilst studying or performed particularly well at a low achieving school. We want to hear from all of you.
2. How can we help
We have an extensive network of partners that can encourage, support and mentor you through the competitive graduate recruitment process.
We want to give you the confidence to believe in your achievements. Success is never more pronounced than when it is accomplished during adversity, which is why we place such importance in recognising any challenges faced leading up to your application.
3. The bigger picture
Dandi encourages you to complete our unique equal opportunities questionnaire and academic assessment to ensure all important factors that could impact your application have been carefully considered by our highly trained consultants.
We are committed to championing your application by highlighting the factors that may have been a barrier to you achieving your potential. We firmly believe they should not affect the rest of your career.
We promise to put your fantastic achievements into context to ensure that our clients have a full understanding of your unique set of circumstances when you make an application.
