Legal & Office Support students visit Simmons & Simmons

23rd April 2018

A small group of our Legal & Office Support students were given the opportunity to attend a taster at Simmons & Simmons recently. All that attended found it valuable, and were grateful for the experience.

“I am really grateful to Simmons & Simmons for inviting a number of our Level 3 Legal Secretary students to their offices in Moorgate to experience the working environment of a law firm for the day. Not only did the students get the chance to shadow a member of staff during the day and carry out real secretarial tasks, they also each took part in an interview and received invaluable feedback on their performance which will help them in the future.”

Hayley Green, Curriculum Manager for Legal & Office Support

“I just wanted to say it was a complete pleasure having your students with us.  They were very pleasant and friendly and we thoroughly enjoyed having them with us with really great feedback from our Team Administrators, Juniors, Secretaries and Co-ordinators.  Your students always appeared engaged during presentations I gave them and asked appropriate questions and I do see real potential in them for Team Administrator roles here at Simmons.”

Leanne Davies, Secretarial Manager for Simmons & Simmons LLP

Feedback from some of the students who attended:

“I found it beneficial to get sent to different departments and it was very interesting to get hands on with some of the work and see the role of a Team Administrator on a day-to-day basis.  I think it would be a great to work in such a friendly environment.” 

Phoebe Pickering, Level 3 Legal Secretary student

 “The mock interview really helped me have an understanding of what we would be asked in a real interview at a law firm.”

Natalie Harlin, Level 3 Legal Secretary student

I found it really insightful and interesting; it was definitely invaluable to see what a large law firm actually looks like on the inside and how the Secretaries work alongside fee earners. Everyone was really friendly and I appreciated being able to buddy up with someone to see what they do.”
