Working in an in-house legal department – Jessica Atkinson-Ryan

June 16th, 2018|

I had a place at university to begin in 2010, however, due to a change in personal circumstances I decided it was not appropriate for me to go, so I started work in customer service. I then applied for a job as a Customer Claims Assistant in the legal department of the travel company I was working in, dealing with personal injury complaints from customers. I heard about the CILEx route to qualifying as a lawyer through my employer who had funded the studies of other members of the department via the CILEx route, and I enrolled on my first courses at the age of 20.

When I left school at 16 I didn't know what I wanted to do, so I got a place on the Gloucestershire County Council apprenticeship scheme doing an NVQ in business administration. When I received my work placement I discovered that I was going to be working in the legal department. After about a year I had completed my NVQ and found myself becoming interested in the law.
