I thoroughly enjoyed the two weeks I spent on the RPC vacation scheme. It was great to be able to experience two different practice areas within the firm and I was given interesting work to complete in both seats. Everyone was really friendly and made me feel as though I was part of the team. The extra talks, workshops and social events were also a great opportunity to learn more about the firm and get to know people.
I really enjoyed the whole experience, from start to finish. Having also completed another vacation scheme at a different firm, I can safely say that the scheme at RPC was in a league of its own. We were made to feel incredibly welcome by every employee that we met during the scheme.

I was able to learn a lot about the firm in a number of different ways, both formal and informal, which helped me to form my own opinions about the firm.
