Allen & Overy Graduate Recruitment

From its strat­e­gy of counter-cycli­cal expan­sion to its vision of broad­en­ing access to the legal pro­fes­sion, Allen & Overy has a his­to­ry of set­ting prece­dents. This project for ThisC­i­ty Agency involved work­ing along­side Allen & Overy, devel­op­ing a Word­Press-based theme to replace their exist­ing grad­u­ate recruit­ment site. Designed mobile-first and ful­ly-respon­sive, it ensured that the expe­ri­ence of the tar­get audi­ence (recent legal grad­u­ates) was deliv­ered con­sis­tent­ly across the broad spec­trum of dig­i­tal devices and browsers.

Con­tent includ­ed inter­ac­tive info­graph­ics, a PDF doc­u­ment archive, over 21 videos, and CMS train­ing doc­u­men­ta­tion was also cre­at­ed to enable in-house updates.
