It took less than 20 minutes to get to the London Bridge offices of the international law firm Berwin, Leighton, Paisner. 20 minutes to have my worldview changed and my vision enlarged.
They started at 10am and ended at 5pm. It was a full day’s work in the city! The meat in the middle comprised of insights into law with BLP, banking with RBS and engineering with Tideway. We took part in team activities interspersed with career talks. In the morning we did a legal negotiation and then created a bank account for students. After a tasty lunch ?, competition & chocolate - always a winner – we took a walk along the River Thames to Tideway where we had a chance to build a tunnel.
It's a bit strange talking about the end at the beginning. I'm about to sit my GCSEs and this taster day has opened my eyes to see so many options for me in the world of work and how I can make a difference in the world.
