The Intern Diaries: Meet Nihro
Updated: Aug 1, 2019
You might have seen a few weeks ago that five new faces joined the rradar team. Our interns, Daniel Ellis, Katherine Coates, Nihro Mawlood, Robert Westwood and Tamera Amoah, have been exploring what goes on at rradar, spending time in a number of departments and getting a first-hand taste of the way that we bring the rradar difference to everything we do. We wanted to know how they were getting on and what they thought of the rradar experience, so we’ve taken some time to ask them a series of questions about what they’ve learned so far.
Fourth in the series of The Intern Diaries, we sit down with Nihro.
What were your initial impressions of rradar? Was there anything that stood out from the offset?
I knew rradar was a different type of law firm from the offset. Everyone gave us a warm welcome; from the reception staff all the way to the CEO Gary Gallen, the team made us part of the family from the beginning.
During your time here, what have been some of the highlights for you?
One of the highlights for me is the unity with my colleagues in the content team. Here, I have been able to witness how the team create articles that simplify the law and make it accessible to clients so that they can be proactive in preventing mishaps happening. It also gave me the opportunity to sit opposite the CEO, Gary Gallen, from whom I have learnt a great deal.
Another highlight for me was working within the rradarstation team. I got to witness first-hand the incredible work that is done in attending to the client’s needs. I was surprised at the range of issues that are dealt with in the rradarstation team.
What do you think about the work you have been getting on with during your time here? Is there anything specific you have really enjoyed getting involved with?
I have spent most of my time in the content team. I am very happy to see that my work here is valued, helping to create a variety of articles. The work in the team is vital in assisting clients as the team in rradarstation can send the articles to them quickly and efficiently.
I have also been part of upcoming projects, attending meetings where I was made to feel like a part of the team.
How is working at rradar different from other workplaces you have worked at, if at all?
This is my first legal experience, so I do not have much to compare it to. Although, I can clearly see the vision behind the firm that makes it one of the fastest growing law firms in the country. The idea of making law accessible and proactive in helping businesses to grow is a great one.
rradar has a specific set of values that it has embedded in its culture and practices – how have you encountered these during your time and what are your thoughts?
I have experienced first-hand the culture and it’s clear that the values are embedded into the work environment here at rradar. The different teams are relentless in their work, to make the law more accessible with their digital tools such as rradarstation, rradargrace and rradarreport and their vision is certainly pioneering.
What would you say to somebody who’s thinking about working at rradar?
Go for it! You would feel part of the family from the beginning. The firm is made for the future, so I would highly recommend being part of their journey.
