We believe that young people should be prepared for their future. They shouldn’t wait until six months after graduating before starting to think about their career.
Leaving it late is no longer an option. Both for candidates and employers.
That’s why we decided to guide our users throughout the entire process, all the way from school to employment. Whether they follow the university path or take the non-university route, we want to help talented young people every step of the way.
We also understand that employers need the right candidates, not just the required volume of applications. We believe that targeting different user groups should be made much, much easier for our clients.
It’s quite simple really. Employers knock on our metaphorical door and ask us to help them promote their graduate schemes, placements, internships, apprenticeships and school leaver programmes.
We say “Yeah, ok.”
We ask our clients questions. We find out what they want to achieve. We try to understand their biggest challenges. We have a good think. We draw up a strategy. And then we put together a bespoke package that will help them accomplish their objectives with aplomb.
Harnessing the power of our awesome products, our sizeable audience and our understanding of the target demographic, we help employers spread the word to the right graduates, students and school leavers in the right way, at the right time.
We do this using a plethora of different solutions.
They’re all good. And, best of all, they’re all in one place.
You don’t need to promote your graduate programmes in one place, your internships in another and your apprenticeships somewhere else entirely.
If you want to attract graduates, we’ve got it covered. If you want to entice undergraduates with an incredible internship, no problem. If you want to grab the attention of school and college leavers, we’re your go-to guys.
By providing interesting, insightful and authoritative information, plus exposure to the very best jobs and career opportunities, we build a relationship with our users that keeps them coming back, all the way through the process from school to employment.
Integrating our clients’ messages into our newsletters, well-designed websites, vibrant social media channels and engaging editorial content enables our clients to inspire, charm and capture the imagination of their target audience.
Since launching AllAboutLaw.co.uk in the golden summer of 2008, our expert team of sharp, creative and perceptive young people has helped us to become one of the most important purveyors of careers information in the UK.
We have expanded over the past five years and now run five successful careers websites, plus a student market research service.
The big cheese, the charmer, the moviegoer.
Hands down, The Lion King. Such an emotional rollercoaster. It proves that even chiefs of the magnitude of Mufasa aren’t safe in this world. I’m welling up now even thinking about it.
The big dog, the raconteur, the linguaphile.
Working on a chicken farm. Have you seen Napoleon Dynamite? It’s like that but worse. Dead chickens in bins a metre from where I was working, stifling heat and constant attacks from angry cockerels. It was alright, though, because they were paying me £3 an hour.
The coordinator, the ideas guy, the pop punk nerd.
When asked to do a presentation during a job interview at an advertising agency, I did some seriously mental ‘outside the box’ thinking and rearranged the office furniture into the shape of a car. I didn’t get the job.
The communicator, the branding maestro, the West End musicals aficionado.
After hearing microwave ‘pings’ at a pricey Caribbean restaurant, asking who was cooking the food and being told “Oh, the chef’s not here today.”
The wordsmith, the perfectionist, the Evertonian.
Sifting through the hefty chronicles of Everton-related heart breaks, it would probably have to be waving goodbye to the then ‘Wunderkind’ Wayne Rooney. Wayne, it could have been something special. We got over it…
The scribbler, the creator, le geek c’est chic.
Eating entire packets of things that are either meant to be shared or eaten in more than one sitting. This month it's coconut macaroons. Last month, malt loaves. Admittedly, I don't feel guilty about doing this, but I’m often told I should be.
The go-to girl, the mathematician, the cox.
Put those bad boys together and we’ve got ourselves a party. Just kidding.
The grammar stickler, the coffee drinker, the sleepy vegan.
I once sat through a nine-hour tattoo session in a dirty flat, and the resulting tattoo looks depressingly similar to The Laughing Cow logo.
The literary enthusiast, the gourmand, the green tea connoisseur.
I am definitely more terrified by ‘slasher’ plots than spooky plots, so I would have to say Halloween (the 1978 original - not the terrible remake!) Mike Myers is relentless; he just keeps on coming back! It still gives me chills...
