Joy

Trainee Solicitor at Ministry of Justice
I am particularly grateful to Bridging Barriers who I believe had a part to play in me receiving a training contract with the Ministry of Justice. My mentor was a great help, from reviewing my CV to offering me valuable advice on networking as well as giving me a sense of direction within my legal journey. I look forward to continuing my relationship with my mentor under the Bridging Barriers mentoring scheme as I commence my journey as a trainee solicitor.

Celine

Higher Executive Officer Valuer at Valuation Office Agency
Bridging Barriers helped me to secure two graduate offers since pairing me with the amazing Rosie. Rosie helped me revamp my CV, prepare for interviews and gave me confidence that I could succeed. Before entering my final year of university and applying for graduate jobs, I had been unsuccessful in my internship applications the previous summer. As as result, I did not have much faith that I was going to secure a role, but Rosie helped me to believe in myself and taught me many necessary skills. Thank you so much, Kevin for setting up such a fantastic mentoring service and thank you to my mentor Rosie, for being such an amazing mentor.

Michael

Portfolio Specialist IP at AON
Bridging Barriers has helped me secure a internship with Legal & General Investment. The mentoring programme provided me with unique insight to the application process. Learning directly from someone who has been successful in your field of interest is a valuable experience. The meetings are a great opportunity to get answers for those questions you might not otherwise have the opportunity to ask. I made sure to act on the advice received and I have had multiple offers as a result. I really appreciate the help my mentor and everyone else at Bridging Barriers has provided me. I would highly recommend this program not just to anyone looking for their desired role but for anyone who wants to grow personally and professionally.

Graduate Trainee at Vanguard
My experience with Bridging Barriers has been a great one, as I was able to secure a graduate role at Vanguard. My mentor Marina has been a pleasure to work with. I look forward to my role in Investment Management at Vanguard and the journey that I am about to take, especially with a mentor in the industry helping to guide me along the way. I could not have asked for anything better from Bridging Barriers!
