I’ve spent three years working in various business development and marketing roles in London law firms. I started my career with a desire to work in advertising, but I have found my place in professional services. I studied Philosophy at university, a subject which I think lends itself well to working in intellectual property. My degree allowed me to develop critical thinking skills and also means I am equipped with an appreciation of the value of important and complex ideas.
Tell us a bit about your current role?
I can be found working on all things social media, graphic design, and events related, but being part of a small team means that I’m exposed to everything that goes on in the firms’ marketing function. No day is ever the same. I enjoy the challenge of working with my highly intelligent and friendly GJE colleagues and find that there is lots of room for creativity in legal marketing!
How did you find the recruitment process?
Straight forward, responsive and accommodating.
What emphasis does the firm place on wellbeing?
I’ve found GJE places a high emphasis on wellbeing. Employees have access to an assistance programme and HR keeps everyone up-to-date with the mental, physical, and financial health support the firm offers. GJE is the only law firm I’ve worked at that has trained mental health first aiders which I find impressive – it’s good to know support is there should you ever need it.
What advice would you give someone applying to GJE?
Be yourself – you will be required to act with a high degree of accuracy and professionalism in your role at GJE, but you will also be able to bring your whole self to work every day.
