    The Company

  • 5. How well structured was the insight?
  • Well structured for work experience students, but campus ambassadors were grouped with work experience students and, as a CA, I obviously knew the firm pretty well already, so was being fed information it had been my role all year to know intimately.

    5/5

  • 14. Did you find out about activities that employees can get involved in outside of work?
  • Yes lots of info on pro-bono, but would have liked to know more about 'extra-curricular' work

  • 15. Would you recommend this insight to a friend?
  • I'm sure I'd recommend working at Freshfields, and doing a vacation scheme, but they didn't get this one right - Campus Ambassadors shouldn't be treated like Year 12 work experience students.
