About You

1. To what extent did you enjoy the insight?

I thoroughly enjoyed my experience at the RPC vacation scheme. The scheme was structured, packed with real work and plenty of opportunities to get to know the firm. The supervisors were engaged and always willing to help and answer questions.


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

I felt that the firm made a good effort to make us feel valued. This was reflected by multiple efforts to involve the vacation scheme students in the ongoing work. Opportunities to go to court and attend client meetings were also invaluable.


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

The supervisors assigned to me made every effort to introduce me to the workings of their team. They happily answered any questions I had and provided support when I needed it.


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

While I have already graduated from university, I am certain that the practical insight I gained during the vacation scheme will help me perform well during my LPC. I felt that in comparison to other placements I had, at RPC my tasks were much more hands-on.

Very helpful, as it confirmed my desire to work for RPC. I felt like I got an very good insight into the firm's culture and work, which allowed me to decided, whether it was a good fit for me or not.
