Your first day at BT: I was really excited to join BT! From attending the in-house legal recruitment event all the way to the assessment centre, I knew BT would be a fantastic place to work. I was also quite nervous, as I was venturing out into the ‘big world’. My team were so welcoming - and my arrival tied in with the monthly team social, so I found myself mini-golfing by the end of my first day. In reality, my first day couldn't have been any better!
Your first year at BT: I have had a brilliant first year at BT. I have been able to develop both professionally and personally, and I've found so many great qualities within myself that I didn't think existed! The Legal Graduate Programme is a truly a unique training contract experience. It has allowed me to develop business acumen through hands-on experience, while also finishing my academic studies, instead of having to take a career break to complete the Legal Practice Course.
How I got here: I studied law at University and had always wanted to pursue a career as an in-house lawyer. I joined BT a few months after graduation. Working in‐house ultimately appealed to me as my role allows me to support the business by analysing potential risks and navigating around obstacles - looking at matters both commercially and legally.
