Working as a team

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Working as a team My interest in event organisation and participation in team sports has helped me to acquire experience and understand the importance of team work. Amongst other fund-raisers I organise the Annual Charity Horse Show for our area. This can expect up to 120 competitors. Team work and communication is vital for both enjoyment and safety. For the three months prior to the event there are weekly meetings of sub-committees where decisions are made and duties delegated. As the organiser, it is my job to motivate and encourage the other members, trying to assign jobs that they are most comfortable with. There are countless tasks from schedule development to advertising and sponsorship. I am normally in charge of creating sponsorship packages, arranging the venue/ ambulance/ caterers and recruiting Judges and helpers for the day. Nearer to the event I am responsible for processing entries, answering queries and sending out times. I share these duties with one other which means a communicative working relationship, so as not to contradict each other. On the day I will oversee the rotation of over 20 volunteers, alleviating them and primarily keeping them happy. It is imperative that everyone knows what they are doing as many shifts include traffic control, supervising the warm up area and manning the collecting ring before people jump. ...read more.

It is imperative that everyone knows what they are doing as many shifts include traffic control, supervising the warm up area and manning the collecting ring before people jump. There are strict time restrictions and the competitors expect a professional environment, however without good communication it quickly descends into chaos. Predominantly I like to be an active member of a team, be it as Captain, chairperson or alternatively within a more subordinate role. ...read more.

Conclusion

The added incentive of working at the biggest firms is the scope of work available. One of the principal attractions of the law has always been the wealth of opportunities that it provides and the breadth of practice areas. I believe that Linklaters' client base and areas of expertise serve to fully emphasize this. Being in such a demanding environment would help me fulfill my potential as I enjoy striving to achieve objectives. This is maximised when I am placed in a challenging or highly stressed situation. Both employment positions and general life experience has helped me to learn to cope in a pressured environment. The concept of combining individual and team work in order to reach goals will provide the right balance between independence and support. The dynamic group of people associated with Linklaters, both client and employee will ensure that the tasks are challenging whilst being stimulating. I have a genuine interest in travel and have backpacked through South America. I am interested in the economic development in different parts of the world, particularly in those emerging markets. The opportunity to travel is appealing, as is being part of an organisation that has almost unlimited scope to expand. The reputation of Linklaters that precedes it is an attractive but not exclusive factor. It is a combination of the atmosphere that the firm has conveyed, the career opportunities available and the structure of training that has prompted my application. ...read more.
