An Interview with Shannon

  • April 21, 2021

We interviewed Shannon, our recruitment consultant here at Nelson Chambers. Shannon graduated from university with a first- class law degree and works closely on the London Legal market, specialising in Employment Law. 

Tell us a little bit about you and your degree?

I graduated from the University of Greenwich in 2018 with first-class honours in Law. I really enjoyed my time at university and got to meet some amazing people. Upon graduation, I secured a role as an insurance consultant before joining Nelson Chambers at the beginning of this year.

You’re a recruitment consultant at Nelson Chambers, what areas do you cover?

My main area of focus is on the employment law market within Central London. Secondary to this I also recruit professionals within Business Immigration.

What’s been your best moment at Nelson Chambers so far?

Joining Nelson Chambers during a lockdown has not always been easy. It's such a simple thing but being able to meet the whole team (albeit virtually) has been the best moment for me by far.

What is your favourite company value and why?

Curiosity. I’ve always been someone who wants to get to the bottom of things and understand the whys and the wherefores. I’m also the type of person who always wants to learn, even if it's useless information that would only ever be useful were I to appear on Pointless.

Tell us about the most challenging part of the job?

The most challenging part of being a recruitment consultant is being able to influence decision-makers at top law firms. With a calm and measured approach and a bit of patience, it can be done and results in great outcomes for both candidates and clients.  

Outside of work what do you like to do?

Outside of work I enjoy socialising with friends and family, going to the cinema, and shopping for plants. I’m also a huge sports fan and always tune in to watch the footie or F1.

List 3 things on your bucket list?

  • Skydive.
  • See the Pyramids.
  • Go on a Safari.
