You can bring your full self to work here.
I’d spent some time here already on my vacation scheme and with the Freshfields Stephen Lawrence Scholarship so I was familiar with the type of work the firm did. However, when I joined as a trainee, I was honestly surprised by how personable people were. It’s easy to build relationships, not just with fellow trainees, but also with associates, partners and support staff.
I’d advise anyone considering Freshfields not to discount yourself.
Forget any misconceptions about not ‘fitting in’. We are working towards being more diverse and people from non-traditional backgrounds can thrive here.
Freshfields in three words?
Stimulating, collaborative, innovative.
