I started with RM three months ago and was attracted by a long established company with a great reputation, the diverse range of work within the legal team and the challenge and opportunity to learn.
Since starting with RM, I have found that people in the business are very knowledgeable and happy to work in collaboration and share knowledge. It is a very supportive environment and the support from colleagues really helps in my day to day role.
My role as a Lawyer within the Corporate Services legal team involves servicing business legal queries, contract reviews with suppliers, supporting the wider business such as TTS or Consortium, trademark/intellectual Property issues and servicing any other legal queries the business may have. I am building new relationships as my role develops and this in turn is leading to a greater and more varied work stream.
Currently, a typical day involves dealing with ongoing projects, urgent requests, contract reviews, debt recovery actions, assisting other teams and divisions, calls with 3rd parties and negotiating contracts.
One of the most enjoyable projects I’ve worked on has been migrating the current phone system to a new one. This involved learning the technical aspects of new systems in order to be able to carry out the negotiation of contract specifics. The expertise and support within the business has really helped with this.
A more challenging piece of work focused around the registering and renewal of the company’s trademarks. This was a big project with a short deadline which involved getting to know the product suite and services that TTS and Consortium provide. The challenge was the sheer number of products that we offer.
I love the culture and working environment at RM. When researching into RM, prior to starting my role, I read that the organisation was very supportive and encouraging. During my time here, it’s become apparent that this is very true.
Also, The Company’s ethos is one of a focus on collaboration and working together towards common goals. This makes work life at RM very enjoyable and rewarding.
I’m proud to work for RM because we are a company that recognises the need to be innovative in the market we are in. This attitude and drive filters down to colleagues throughout the business and we are moving forward with these ideals.
