Scarlet is a paralegal at a UK law firm that specialises in insurance claims. She’s always been a high flyer and joined the firm after graduating with a first-class degree. But, just 18 months into her new job, she felt disillusioned. Scarlet’s role involves servicing customers who had been in car accidents where their insurance claim was in dispute.
Although she was part of a small, specialist team, she felt isolated and disengaged, instead of like she was adding value and putting her skills to good use.
So much so, she decided that neither the company nor a career in law were right for her. Instead, she decided to pursue a different dream and promptly lined up a new job.
