I applied for a vacation scheme with HSF during my second year of university. This was definitely the best decision for my career as it gave me insight into the life of a trainee at a leading city law firm. I was also able to get to know the culture of the firm, and soon realised that I would fit in well.
I am now in the final seat of my training contract and will be qualifying in March 2017. My career is very much in its infancy, and I'm excited to see what the next few years will bring.
As a trainee, I also like being able to gain experience in several different parts of the firm. Not only has this helped me decide what area of law I would like to specialise into, but it also means I now have a wide range of key contacts across HSF. In such a large firm, developing this personal network is really important.
