A day in the life of a Client Administrator in the United Kingdom
Client administrator at Plexus Law Ltd
What I do
I work in a law firm which provides defence services for insurance companies.
Skills I use and how I developed them
Customer service skills to speak to customers, research skills to find historic insurance cover
What I like most
The team I work with are great
What I like least
I have quite a long commute to and from work each day
What surprised me most
The amount of new claims we get each day
My career goals when I graduated
To get a job in a large law firm
My career history
I've worked in Primark, Boots, Natwest, a Nissan dealership and now finally a law firm
What has helped my career to progress
I think having a lot of weekend jobs gave me a lot of skills other people didn't have. I'm so glad I always worked alongside my studies.
Courses taken since graduation
How my studies have helped my career
I needed my degree for the job I have. I'm currently going through the firm's training contract applications and I'm hoping that I can speak about the unique way that law is taught at the University of York. I'm hoping this will make me stand out from everyone else.
What surprised me about my career so far
I was surprised by the variety of work I got to do as soon as I joined Plexus Law
Where I hope to be in 5 years
A qualified solicitor at Plexus Law
My advice to students considering work
Take copies of your CV to law fairs and research the firms that are going to be there before you attend the fair
My advice about working in my industry
Be prepared to work hard and make sure you actually read the emails that are sent to everyone where you work
Try and get a weekend job. I really think it helped me to get a job after university
I'm happy to try and help any law student. I'm not sure how much help I'll be but I'll do my best!
