Trainee secondment opportunity

Being an international law firm brings international opportunities for our trainees. Secondments give our trainees access to new experiences whilst also taking some time to explore a new city!

As a trainee with Eversheds Sutherland you will have an opportunity to complete four weeks work experience in one of our international offices. Our trainees have travelled to Paris, Milan and Madrid to mention but a few locations.

Read about Niamh's experience in our Madrid office:

Niamh Diskin, winner of the 2018 trainee secondment competition. 

Niamh DiskinI took part in the 2018 Eversheds Sutherland trainee secondment competition and was fortunate  enough to be selected to complete a secondment in one of our European offices; Stockholm, Munich, Paris, Milan or Madrid.

I chose to spend a month in Madrid as part of the TMT (Technology, Media and Telecommunications) team in the Eversheds Sutherland Nicea office. The team acts for clients in the entertainment sector, including record labels and well-known musicians, in plagiarism disputes, copyright infringements and privacy issues.

One of the most interesting projects I worked on was a diversity and inclusion initiative, whereby I researched the parameters within which personal information can be requested from employees under data privacy regulations to assess the diversity of their workforce.

I also liaised with colleagues from the Employment Law Department to determine the categories of information which can be requested from employees from a Spanish labour law perspective.

From getting to know our Spanish colleagues to exploring the city of Madrid, I thoroughly enjoyed the secondment and I am very grateful for the support of the firm for facilitating the experience.

Niamh Diskin (Trainee, 2019).
