I joined Aston Bond in Slough three weeks ago as a Real Estate paralegal having spent a year working in a regional office of a larger practice. I was keen to make the move and gain more practical experience in the legal field. From the first day I found myself involved in interesting and challenging work that far exceeded my initial expectation.
In my previous role I was a small part of a bigger team. At Aston Bond I have enjoyed the opportunity to have a greater involvement in client cases and to work using my own initiative. Within my first few days I was tasked with drafting my first lease which was quite challenging and was something I didn’t expect to have the chance to do so soon.
One of the main things I have noticed whilst working at Aston Bond is how quickly the day goes. Being constantly involved in interesting work means I never find myself watching the clock. I have found everyone to be friendly and welcoming from day one and have experienced a lot more responsibility and exposure to work meaning I am constantly learning every day.
I have thoroughly enjoyed my first few weeks at Aston Bond and look forward to getting more involved with the variety of law cases the firm deals with. I’m hoping this will broaden my knowledge more quickly than may have been the case working at a larger practice.
