The placement scheme was certainly rewarding and insightful. It definitely provided an opportunity to experience Ashurst's professional and inclusive culture, while completing interesting and challenging pieces of work.
I felt that my work and contribution was valued in each of the departments in which i sat, which made me feel part of these teams.
The support culture was excellent during the placement. The trainees make a particular effort to get to know you individually
The structure of the scheme was well considered, striking a fine balance between office based work experience and informative group sessions, which helped give a greater insight to other areas of the firm.
The employees were very welcoming and accommodating of the placement students. Ashurst's culture stands alone amongst many other city law firms.
The two weeks felt similar to the experience of a trainee
