The 10,000 Black Interns programme: Meet Victoria
As part of the 10,000 Black Interns programme, Victoria reflects on her time at BDB Pitmans.
What about BDB Pitmans appealed to you before you accepted your internship?
What appealed to me was the amount of sectors that the firm covers. I have just completed my first year of university studying law and I have never had the chance to see what real solicitors do. I knew BDB Pitmans would be a fantastic learning opportunity and it would guide my future decisions through and after university.
What did you enjoy most about your internship with BDB Pitmans?
I enjoy the amount of trust that each department gives their interns. They truly make you feel like you are working in the firm and they give out real cases that affect people’s lives. Not only do I feel like I am learning but I also feel like I’m helping to make a difference.
If you were to describe our company culture in three words, what would they be?
If I were to describe the company culture in three words, they would be, ‘welcoming’, ‘lively’ and ‘engaging.’
What project that are you working on in your present role that you’ve enjoyed the most?
I am currently working in the Private Real Estate team on a project that involves finding information which a buyer has requested within documents that were provided by the seller. I must then see what information has been left out of the documents and request this from the seller so that the buyer has all the information they need about the property.
