After graduating from university with a law degree, Amy secured a graduate internship with our legal team. That was 3 years ago.
‘I really enjoyed my internship’, says Amy. ‘I found that I had a really great opportunity to be able to put the skills I learned at university to use, whilst at the same time I was learning something new.
Eventually, this gave me a good foundation to apply for a training contract with the Commission and eventually go on to become a qualified solicitor.
With the Commission’s flexible working options, I was able to study for the LPC whilst doing my training contract full time. I felt hugely supported, not just by my team but by other colleagues.
I think there has been a concerted effort by the Commission over the last couple of years or so in trying to develop employees in ways which will benefit both the individual and the organisation as a whole. I think these efforts have been felt across the Commission, which makes colleagues feel that they are valued as employees.’
