I was always very quiet in school. I didn’t put my hand up enough. All that changed when I joined Clifford Chance’s ACCESS Scheme. I was assigned a mentor on day one who took the time to get to know me, to assess my strengths, not just my weaknesses. And together, we figured out how I could build meaningful relationships in a way that made sense to me. I’d say that’s a common trait everyone shares at the Firm – listening. You feel heard at Clifford Chance. You learn so much from so many people, all of whom are as committed to seeing you succeed as you are.
