I joined DWF after finishing my LPC, however was initially employed at Tesco on a part-time basis during my studies, so I did not have much experience working in an office environment. DWF is one of the leading law firms in the UK, so attracted immediate attention when I was applying for paralegal vacancies.
The progression opportunities at DWF are second to none. During my time at DWF, I have been given plenty of opportunity to expand my knowledge and develop my understanding on the insurance/occupational health sector.
The proudest moment at DWF so far has been raising money for the DWF Foundation through the zip-wire challenge and running the Manchester 10k run. I have also volunteered for the Foundation partaking in various activities and experiencing first-hand the great value that the Foundation offers to the wider community.
DWF has a very personable and friendly feel to the firm. I was made to feel welcome as soon as I started. My supervisors are experienced in what they do, and have taught me along the way.
DWF has supported my progression and development along the way. This has been made to happen through my supervisors, through both formal and informal training, in addition to various seminars hosted by barristers.
There are plenty of opportunities to get involved with various activities, this can be either through the DWF Foundation, or sports and social events. I have recently been involved in the DWF team for the Lloyds of London annual rugby tournament, which was a great opportunity to network and meet co-workers from different offices.
Professional. Diverse. Knowledgeable.
