'You said'

Work experience 2024

I would just like to pass on our gratitude for your part in arranging such a wonderful work experience place for X in May 2024. We were initially subdued after a few rejections and on the verge of giving up finding a solicitors for X but your perseverance found a way - we wouldn’t have been able to find the ideal place without your help!

His week at Barwells Solicitors in Eastbourne was ideal as being a Solicitor has been his ambition for many years. His week here has been so varied as to cover all areas under the Solicitor umbrella - this has enabled X to fully concentrate moving forwards to gain the qualifications needed for his chosen career!

From meeting the receptionist on his first day, who was fully expecting him and knew what the day ahead entailed for him, to all the staff who welcomed him, it was such a positive introduction to the world of work.

Each day set out a different area, such as Family, personal injury, conveyancing, private clients and even a stint at reception! As confidence was built X even had a go at a valuation.

Barwells were open to X working with them again for experience and once hitting the age of 16 perhaps as a summer job.

Fantastic experience and thanks again for all your support in the first place to find this company for him!

College applications

I just wanted to say how very much my husband and I (and X) have appreciated your quick response to my emails and for all your support with X.

She was feeling so very anxious and overwhelmed and you quickly provided us with lots of very helpful information and advice.  We have looked at all the information you provided (including the virtual work experience which X is keen to explore) and she is feeling so much better about college and what to do going forward.

We also appreciate you checking in with her at school and making sure she knows she has someone to ask for advice.

At the school I work at we do weekly staff shout outs where we nominate a staff member for going above and beyond and I would definitely be nominating you for a shout out if I could!

Thanks again for everything.
