I’m now a graduate recruitment partner at my law firm – we’re very hot on social mobility, and because of the opportunity I had with the Sutton Trust I’m very passionate about this.
The programme allowed me to grasp an understanding of the law, the people, the etiquette and the general know-how that no one normally thinks to teach a 16-year-old. Six years on, I still use many of the lessons taught on the programme on a day-to-day basis.
I considered working in the financial sector before the programme, but upon completion, this idea had been cemented. I loved experiencing the different cultures within each firm, and deciphering which departments I wasn’t keen on working in.
