We have a vacancy available for a third-six pupil.  Candidates will generally be expected to have completed pupillage in a commercial or chancery set, with strong academic credentials and excellent references from their supervisors.  No previous experience of tax practice is necessary. 

If you are interested in applying but would like to discuss what tax practice involves before making your application, or have other questions about the application process, please do not hesitate to contact us.

We would intend to offer a third-six starting at or before the beginning of October 2019 and to make a decision on tenancy before Christmas 2019.  We would not offer a pupillage unless we believed the applicant had a strong chance of being offered tenancy in due course.

Please send a covering letter, updated CV plus a minimum of 2 references from recent pupil supervisors to the Head of Pupillage Committee, Richard Vallat QC, via pupils@pumptax.com.  The deadline for applications is 6th August 2019 but we will close applications early if we are able to make an offer to an outstanding candidate before that date.  Interviews will be arranged for promising candidates as soon as possible after their applications are received.

Email: steven@36commercial.co.uk

 

The 36 Group is a well-established multi-specialist set of Chambers.  It has 5 specialist practice groups, each of which operate effectively as ' sets within a set ' .  One of those internal sets is ' 36 Commercial ' .  36 Commercial specialises in a wide range of commercial work.

 

36 Commercial has a funded pupillage scheme where it offers a £60,000 annual award to the successful applicant for pupillage.  However, in the period between such pupillages, it now finds that there is a surfeit of work suitable for a third six pupil, referred to as a ' probationary tenant ' within The 36 Group terminology.

 

36 Commercial is looking to recruit one probationary tenant who has not been offered tenancy at a ranked set that specialises in commercial work that falls within the scope of 36 Commercial's work, as can be seen on its website. 

 

Candidates will be expected to be strong academically, already possess or evidence potential for possessing good advocacy skills (written and oral). Strong references will be essential.  

 

As a probationary tenant, you can expect to be kept busy both in court and with written work.

 

Successful completion of the probationary tenancy period of six months, would lead to an offer of full tenancy by The 36 Group and practice group membership of 36 Commercial.

 

If you are interested and wish to apply for a Probationary Tenancy, please write to 36 Commercial's Practice Manager, Steven Newbery at steven@36commercial.co.uk and cc The 36 Group's Chief Operations Officer, Rowan Caffull at rowan@36group.co.uk, with the following attachments:

  • Letter of Application, in which relevant practice experience, current practice, ambitions for the future and reason for applying to 36 Commercial are all addressed.
  • CV
  • Computer (e.g. LEX) print outs of any earnings, receipts and current aged debt for work carried out during the second six months of pupillage and, where applicable, during any subsequent period of squatting.
  • 2 references from pupil supervisors.

 

Applications will be treated in confidence and will be objectively assessed against our Probationary Tenancy criteria.  

 

The application deadline is 4 pm on 29 July 2019. However, prospective candidates should apply as soon as possible, as we may fill the vacancy before the deadline date if an outstanding candidate presents him or herself before then.
