As RollOnFriday reports, a city firm announced a "great temporary opportunity" for a graduate not to join the firm as part of a challenging summer clerkship but to work as a member of the catering staff.

The incredibly tempting opportunity involves serving sandwiches to clients, reception duties, organising afternoon tea for staff as well as the challenging task of booking taxis - clearly what every law graduate with mountains of student debt strives for.

The firm, which was not named in the advertisement, said it was looking for someone to make an immediate start and for interested candidates to get in touch with consultants Career Legal.

While Folklaw feels sorry for any law graduate who is forced to take a catering job at a law firm, maybe it will inspire them to leave the law for MasterChef and lead a much more exciting life as a celebrity chef.
