You’re on a career conveyor belt, you got on the belt by accident and don’t know whether to stay on the belt and speed it up, or slow down the belt and get off. You want to explore whether being a solicitor is what you really want and, if so, what it means in the long term. You may want a change (or not). You may want to sense check you’re on track.
You like what you do and are working towards the next (and next-but-one) stages in your career. You’re en route to Associate, Manager, Director, Member, Partner or Business Owner. You thrive in the job and are focused on getting to the top and love doing so. You’re happy with your career. Your progress is encouraged and supported.
You’re established, but are now asking “What next?” and want to explore whether being a solicitor is what you still want. You’re thinking of not being a solicitor, but still working (or work less). You’re interested in using your expertise as a springboard to something else, to give something back to society, or to learn something new. You want to (or must) plan for a different future.
