2. To what extent did you feel valued during your time at the company or firm?

The work I have undertaken has all been pretty substantial and no one asked me to do photocopying/bundling (not that I would have minded). The firm is also keen to know what you think of them so your feedback is important.

9/10

3. How much guidance/support did you receive during the insight?

The guidance and support I have received from both HR and the lawyers/trainees has been fantastic. There is no such thing as a silly question and you can always ask for feedback/help.

10/10

4. To what extent did/will the skills you developed, and information you received, assist you in your degree studies and beyond?

Even if I don't receive a TC offer, the skills I have learned on this vacation scheme are extremely transferable.

6. How was the general atmosphere during your insight?

7. In terms of personal training and development, to what extent did the company or firm invest in you?

The majority of the skills I feel as though I have learned/developed on the scheme have been as a result of working closely with lawyers. There are plenty of networking opportunities available and I have found these really helpful.

10/10

8. To what extent did the insight help you to understand what it would be like to have a full time role with the company or firm?

Lots of the work I have done is indicative of what a trainee would be doing so I would say it has given me a good insight.

10/10

9. How much did the insight help you in understanding the company culture?

I wanted to find out if the firm really lived up to its ethos and have found that it did just that. The culture here is really open and this is reflected by the people and the offices.

10/10

10. How valuable was the content in helping you to decide on your future career path?

I think if you have got this far in the process then you are already pretty aware of what career path you are taking, but the content of the scheme did cement this for me.

Excellent. We went to ClueQuest and pizza making with the trainees and had several networking lunches/speednetworking with the lawyers.

Sports teams, client networking and socials, pre-TC opportunities.
