Citizens Advice Bureau experience


I am studying law and I did not get through the interview for the vacation scheme. Would the Citizens advice bureau expeience is as good as vacation scheme.

All feed back will much appreciated.


Hi there!

I worked at the CAB for around 3 months in my last year studying law. It is quite a good way of improving your communication skills! However, their ‘buddy’ training system can be a bit variable. Some ‘buddies’ were a bit grumpy where I worked and were quite mean to me! I think like most jobs if you’re not really assertive, they kind of walk all over you.

This was a rather large branch, so I think I will apply to a smaller branch to gain more experience.
