Practice Assistant

I was placed at Allens while finishing my Certificate 3 in Business Administration. The prospect of completing my work experience at Allens was exciting but when I saw the office for the first time I was blown away. I had never visited such an impressive office building, let alone spent a day working in one. 

When I finished my studies, I was offered a position as a Trainee Legal Secretary. For me this was an amazing moment, I couldn’t wait to start my first full time job. I had met other legal secretaries during work experience and I knew the trainee program was the perfect fit for me. Everone is coached during the program and there is always someone on-hand to provide advice if you need it. Development is an important part of the program and I’ve always felt supported during the learning process. 

The firm is welcoming and inclusive, and so are the people. There are many opportunities to get involved with teams across the firm. I’ve really enjoyed my journey so far and I can’t wait to see what my next chapter holds.

I’ve always felt supported during the learning process.'
