I thoroughly enjoyed my time at Shoosmiths. I was immediately made to feel welcome and genuinely felt valued.
I felt that I was given real responsibility and that my input was used to real effect.
I was supervised and given insightful feedback throughout my time.
This was the most beneficial aspect of my time. I gained real analytical skills and practical knowledge which I believe will serve me well throughout life.
It was organised from induction through to exit. Very well organised and professional.
A great team to work for: a real laugh with real people.
The feedback I received was very well structured, honest and frank. My areas for improvement were conveyed in a constructive manner and my learning was palpable.
I felt like a member of staff, not like somebody on a part time placement.
Shoosmiths embraced me into the family culture it has and made me understand its values and what it expects from its people.
I really got to grips with Real Estate law and the practicalities - and challenges - of working in such an area.
I was walked around the office and met people from post room to Partner level. I even went on a social with the team on the Friday my placement ended!
Again, everything was well set out and I felt like I was seamlessly integrated into Shoosmiths social culture.
There are always flyers and office wide emails shouting about what is happening when the work day ends.
100%. A fantastic place to work and learn.
