“The support of Aspiring Solicitors was fundamental to my success in securing a training contract. Attending AS Open Days introduced me to graduate recruitment teams and enabled me to make my applications stand out. I secured a place on the Barclays Legal Work Experience Scheme and attended the “HeadStart into a Training Contract” workshop. This increased my confidence so I could get the most out of networking and put the best version of myself forward at interviews.

The weekly telephone appointments made juggling applications whilst working full-time so much easier; I genuinely looked forward to my appointments every week, I would receive tailored advice, and finish the calls with a clear idea of what I needed to do to improve. This had a remarkable effect on my applications, and I started being invited to final stage interviews at numerous firms.

I cannot stress enough how valuable the work of Aspiring Solicitors has been to me, and to increasing diversity in the legal profession. The team give their wholehearted support and time to everyone that asks for it, and the success of each Professional Ambassador is a true testament to their dedication.”
