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

People from all departments and levels took time out of their schedules to give us an insight into what they did and there was a lot of focus on making sure that we enjoyed the placement, not just expecting us to impress the firm.

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?

As we were able to spend quite a bit of time in the departments I was able to undertake varying tasks and people were always happy to explain what they did on a daily basis

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

RPC is all about it's clients and it's people and this has been clear throughout the scheme. I think the company culture is very clear from the outset and RPC has a strong identity.

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

The content was extremely helpful as we were able to understand what the role includes on a daily basis. However, time spent networking with different firms showed us the range of interesting work which RPC does which has made me consider other areas of law which i may not have previously considered. I think that you would spoilt for choice with RPC.
