Contextualised grading considers factors such as school and college performance, as well as personal circumstances, giving us a better indication of your potential.

Once you have applied to LCP, we will send you an email with a link to the REALrating platform, to complete if you feel it is appropriate to you.

Timescales and selection process

  • 17 August 2020: Applications open for our 2021 graduate programme
  • August 2020: We start reviewing applications for the graduate programme
  • Late September - December 2020: Assessment days held
  • 13 November 2020: Closing date for applications
  • September 2021: Graduate programme commences

Competition for places on our programme is high so we encourage early applications to avoid disappointment.

Shortlisted graduates will be invited to take part in our one-day assessment process.  As a result of the ongoing COVID pandemic, we are expected to move to online assessment days, until such time as it is safe to reopen our offices. The intention is that our online assessment days will still give us a chance to meet and get to know you, whilst giving you the opportunity to hear about our offices, locations, people, culture, how we work, and a general feel for LCP.

Our assessment days will usually involve:

  • A group exercise
  • Two interviews (typically with a consultant and partner)
  • An opportunity to meet people within LCP of varying levels
  • A chance to meet with recent graduates to discuss what our graduate roles and work at LCP are like

We’ll be in touch shortly after the assessment day to let you know the results.
