After working in recruitment and as a paralegal Sam knew that a career in law was for her.

On assessing her options, Muckle stood out to Sam because of its reputation.  She applied for the vacation scheme to see if Muckle really was as brilliant as everyone said it was, and she felt they weren’t wrong.  Right from the start she said she was made to feel welcome.  Even though this kind of process can seem scary, she felt everyone made an effort to speak to her and help in any way they could.  After only a week, she knew that this was the place for her.  And she said this was all down to the kind of people that work here who have a great mix of intelligence, character and personality.

So what’s the one piece of advice Sam would give to anyone going through the Graduate recruitment process?  Just be yourself and relax.  Sam feels Muckle place a huge emphasis on you as a person and have a real interest in you, not just your academics.  She commends the recruitment team, saying they are fantastic!  Sam really enjoyed every aspect of the process and it was down to the fact that she felt so comfortable.  She felt the team appreciate how stressful the application process can be and make every effort to ensure that this is not the case with Muckle!

After starting work here, she knew that the training was first class; evident to anyone who is lucky enough to take part in the vacation scheme.  Overall she would highly recommend applying so you can really see what Muckle are all about.
