Career Change Story

I worked closely with the business as Assistant General Counsel. I took great interest in the commercial aspects of the business (as well as the legal) and spent as much time as I possibly could getting to know how the business operated and to what extent my skills could be utilised.

Career Change Reflections

Be prepared to not have a title, to get paid less at the beginning and make sure that you learn fast!!!
