Before leaving I had two students whom I supervised on a daily basis. Our group has been commended on a number of occasions by the Head of Human Resources and multiple Firm Partners for our ability to work well as a team. Excellent training and proper communication enabled us to complete our daily tasks in record time allowing more space for progression focuses projects that lead to creating a new filing system for in and out of office use.
