When I interviewed university students about their career plans for The Times in 2015, Linklaters was often mentioned as a favourite employer. That really piqued my interest. I was also curious about what it's like to work for such a global and successful name.
Just three months into the role, I could already tell what keeps people here. It could be said that the big glass walls of our Stockholm office reflect the culture within: this is a vibrant, open community. A place where things happen. It’s a place that's open to all needs, from introspective, individual work to lively collaboration. You see it in the people, too. They're great at balancing professionalism with a friendly attitude. Though there's a lot to take in as a new-joiner, I'm constantly impressed by the sheer range of resources and support provided.
Before joining Linklaters, I studied English Language and Literature for five years at both the University of Oxford and Stockholm University. I also worked at a brand consultancy in London and the Department of English at Stockholm University. But thanks to the breadth and depth of training offered by Linklaters, I’ve been able to develop and extend my working skills. Despite having just started here, I've already had training in innovative thinking, communication, IT, performance and presentation. If you enjoy a challenge and putting in the extra effort to make things great, you'll love it here.
