Learning in Action
For Saba, stepping into her role at CTT marked a crucial milestone—the beginning of her professional career. Grateful for the opportunity, she describes her time at CTT as an educational journey, offering invaluable insights into a professional working environment and daily operations within a legal team.
“As a law student, being able to see the practice side of things has been extremely insightful as I get to see how the law is applied on a daily basis,” says Saba.
Aside from the legal expertise, it was the appealing combination of a friendly work environment and a balanced work-life dynamic that drew Saba to CTT for her placement year.

Acknowledging the importance of training in every new member’s CTT journey, we underscore its pivotal role by offering extensive support to those commencing their professional path. This method aims to build confidence among newcomers and reaffirms the group’s unwavering support as they navigate new challenges in their roles.
“The training has assisted me in establishing a strong foundation on knowledge. The training has been very helpful and has helped me to take more responsibilities when working,” states Saba.
What also stood out for Saba was the consistent focus on learning—a culture upheld through weekly training and open Q&A sessions, in which staff members can update their knowledge, ask questions, and solidify their understanding of legal concepts and their applications. Saba emphasises the freedom to enquire and acquire knowledge as one of her highlights during her time at CTT, providing the ‘flexibility to be able to always ask and learn’, which has made her feel supported throughout her journey.

Transitioning from university to a professional work environment is always a significant adjustment. At CTT, we aim to make this transition as smooth as possible by providing continued support and supervision to those starting out at CTT Group. It was our mission to welcome Saba into the legal environment and equip her with all skills necessary for her to succeed.
