Callum is currently on a year long Finance Placement with local government, as part of his degree in BA Economics and Politics with Employment Experience at The University of Sheffield. As part of his placement, he has presented recommendations regarding cost efficiencies to senior managers, persuading them to implement changes. As well as assisting in the provision of financial advice. His role has allowed him to work in a fast-paced professional environment and has forced him to think creatively when addressing issues. Callum believes these experiences outside of law will serve him well in his desired career as a commercial solicitor. After qualifying, he plans to practice as a solicitor advocate, his passion for advocacy stems from his participation in moots and the work experience he has completed with a barrister. Despite his passion for advocacy he has opted for a career as a solicitor due to the prospect of greater client contact; having already enjoyed positive experiences with clients in his role as finance co-ordinator for The University of Sheffield Bhangra society, where he successfully negotiated a sponsorship. Callum has recently been accepted onto the competitive STRIVE Supernova scheme which assists aspiring solicitors through 1-1 coaching, online workshops and legal work experience; he believes this combined with his wide breadth of experience will serve him well in his future career.
