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.

Remember the online application form is your opportunity to introduce yourself to us, to stand out from the crowd and make a good impression.

Timescales and selection process

  • 28 September 2020: Applications open for our 2021 summer internship programme
  • 26 February 2021: Closing date for applications
  • December - March 2020: Assessment days held

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

Candidates who are shortlisted from the online application forms will be invited to come to our offices to meet us for our one-day assessment process. This usually takes place in December to March and will typically involve:

  • Two interviews - typically with a consultant and a partner
  • A chat with recent graduates - giving you the chance to ask them questions about working for LCP

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.
