Who Do We Look For?

  • Akin Gump hires the best and brightest. We look for exceptional and consistent academic achievement combined with evidence of a driven outlook through extracurricular achievements.
  • To thrive in our fast-paced commercial environment our future work placement participants and trainees need to be on track for a 2:1 degree at minimum. They should demonstrate a commercial mind-set and intellectual curiosity, be solution-driven and keen for early responsibility.
  • What a difference our differences make. We recognise that diverse professional and personal backgrounds broaden perspectives throughout the firm and complementary strengths make for a truly dynamic atmosphere. We are excited to see what you add to the mix.
