Once you have completed this, please ensure that you send us through the following pieces of information: 1) A photocopy of your passport or driving licence, 2) a copy of a recent utility bill or similar, and 3) a copy of your current practising certificate if relevant. These should be emailed through to us. If you have any references (in the form of a "to whom it may concern" letter), please email these through as well.

We do not employ locums; instead each company or firm contracts directly with our solicitors as self-employed consultant. Normally locums are covered on the firm or company's own professional indemnity certificate, but it is important you check this on commencement of any assignment.
