The Pupillage Gateway is a flexible and cost-effective way for chambers and Authorised Training Organisations (ATOs) to advertise pupillages and manage applications – making it easy for you to run a modern, online, recruitment process without a huge investment in your own system.
Managed by the Bar Council and provided by Jobsgopublic, the Pupillage Gateway collates all of your applications into one centralised system so that you can track the progress of each candidate’s application, with assistance at every stage of the process. It has a bespoke design with improved functionality to support the high-volume application process for pupillage.
Candidates will find the Gateway simple to use, with user-friendly features, such as a wide range of search criteria, the ability to store data from previous applications and a longer window of time to prepare their applications through the use of an online practice application form. The Gateway will allow candidates to tailor their applications to individual chambers.
