As a legal assistant, your working days fly by. Your range of tasks is extensive, and more varied than the average Eurovision Song Contest repertoire. Boredom? Not in your job description.

This means that you work a lot on your own, which is the ideal way to quickly add to your knowledge and keeps boosting your confidence, every day!

2. Interesting contacts

Are you socially oriented, and interested in all kinds of life experiences? If so, this is your dream sector. You are frequently in contact with your clients, and occasionally with the adverse party. Not only by telephone and e-mail: you regularly get visitors at the office. As a result, in addition to meeting all kinds of people, you also make a difference for them through your work. A thought that gives you great enthusiasm to tackle every single day.

3. International environment

Do you work as a legal expert for a large company? If that's the case, chances are you have many foreign contacts. Such an international environment is the ultimate opportunity to hone and expand your language skills. You are also quickly informed of the latest innovations across borders. And having daily contacts with people from different nationalities allows you to expand your knowledge of all these cultures. The ideal way to gain different insights and broaden your view. Or to get inspiration for your next travel destination! ;-)

4. Every day a challenge

Every client is a chance to start with a clean slate. That's because every case is different and nothing is ever clear-cut. Such a challenge forces you to keep pushing your limits, and no two days are the same. And handling a complex case successfully will give you huge satisfaction!

5. Always informed

Will we get a wage increase soon as a result of indexation? Can we work more flexibly? As a legal specialist, you are one of the first to be informed. And you know how to take advantage of the situation. If, for instance, the renovation grants are to be phased out next year, you make sure to plan your work this year. And you also tell your friends and family on time and are aware of important changes, which means that thanks to you, they are never taken by surprise. Your knowledge also comes in useful in your private life. Isn't that great?
