What are the Best and Worst things about your job?


I get a great quality and variety of work in my current team. One day I am acting for an individual selling their owner-managed business and the next I am acting for a large corporate in an acquisition.

Building and maintaining relationships with clients either over emails/telephone or at networking events.


The hours are long and can be unforgiving at times. You are sat down all day.

What is the annual salary for this role?

Starting salary: £19,000 - £21,000

Current salary: £27,000 - £29,000

What hours do you actually work, on average?

Start: 08:30

Finish: 20:00

What advice would you give to someone applying to this role?

Really think about the experiences you have had both in and out of the work place. Lots of applicants write about the DofE award - try to think outside of the box and use ALL of your experiences. You can so much more than you think from part-time jobs and volunteering opportunities.

Do you have any interview tips?

Be honest. If you don't know the answer to a question take a second to think about why you might be being asked it - can you think of a way that you could work out the answer? Keep an eye out in the media for interesting/controversial news articles. Research both sides of the argument and try to present your own well reasoned opinion.
