I was under the supervision and sitting adjacent to a trainee solicitor who provided me with tasks to do, all of which she would be doing herself in my absence. Therefore I was experiencing the work of a trainee! Tasks involved research, drafting letters and filing forms.
Really enjoyed myself - working as part of the team who welcomed me and gave me real work to do.
Everybody was so friendly and accommodating that I felt like I had been working there for years.
The trainee I was sitting with was very helpful and supportive
I learnt some useful information and developed a few skills.
Structure was very impressive, so that there was never a spare moment and I got the most out of my time there.
I had a really fun and fulfilling week!
A lot of preparation time went into it i could see, and all staff were prepared to give me their time.
It was good experience as I was sitting with a trainee and doing trainee work and so it was good experience of what life as a trainee would be like.
Really experienced first hand the culture of the firm.
The breadth of work ensured I was exposed to lots of different issues and it really helped confirm my interest in the department I was sitting in.
I was paid a reasonable amount for the week's work.
There was a lunch one day where we could mingle with other employees.
Difficult to speak to many people as we were sat down, furthermore not a huge amount of people were there.
I found out about all the activities available and was even invited to play Netball!
I definitely would.
