Job Description/Duties

High Fliers Research is an independent market research company specialising in student and graduate research. In association with The Times, we produce The Times Top 100 Graduate Employers careers directory and website, and conduct the UK’s largest survey of final year students.

 

The Law Student Survey is an innovative annual study of students at the UK’s top universities who are interested in working as solicitors. University careers services, the national press and legal graduate employers – including Clifford Chance, A&O Sherman, White & Case and DLA Piper - are all invested in the results of this survey. The results are presented to firms in early 2024 to inform their graduate recruitment programs, and our Law Survey Ambassadors play a crucial part in this.

 

In order to conduct our research, we hire a Law Ambassador at the 21 leading universities for law across the UK, who coordinates market research and management tasks. This ambassador role provides a unique opportunity to expend your understanding of the legal graduate job market. If you're looking for a role to make your CV stand out, this could be the one for you.

 

Applicants must be studying law in their penultimate or final year of undergraduate study, or able to demonstrate a strong interest in a law conversion following the completion of their undergraduate non-law degree.

 

Your role:

  • Full responsibility for the legal research conducted at your university, completed during a six-week period in the autumn term (mid October - December)
  • Source penultimate-year law students, final-year law students and non-law students who are interested in pursuing a career in law to take part in a paid online survey exploring their job-hunting experiences.
  • Ad hoc campus research tasks, such as attending and reviewing Law Careers Fairs, Law Society events, networking events or employer popups

 

This role provides you with:

  • Competitive pay of £12/h + bonuses for performance and ad hoc tasks
  • Flexible working hours around your studies (<2h/week)
  • Valuable experience in recruitment, leadership, organisation and time management
  • An unrivalled insight into the legal graduate recruitment market

 

We're looking for:

  • An outgoing, confident and approachable nature to motivate fellow students
  • The discipline to work independently, delivering the task at hand on time and to a high standard alongside your studies
  • Someone committed to achieving results, with the interpersonal skills to excel
  • Leadership, management or organisational experience is desired but not essential. If you're keen to learn, we'd love to hear from you.
