SHIFT Consultant Profiles: Vicki Slater

One of our fantastic SHIFT Lawyers, Vicki Slater, gave us an insight into her world…

Who are you currently working with?

I am working with with a large Crown entity as part of their privacy and commercial team, on a 12-month parental leave cover.

What do you love about the role?

The culture here is fantastic. Everyone has been so welcoming, and I’ve really felt part of the team from day one.

What made working with SHIFT unique?

The team at SHIFT got to know me as an individual and suggest roles which suit my personality as well as my skillset. They provide education seminars for continuing professional development, social get-togethers, and all the usual support you would expect from a law firm, without any of the drawbacks. It’s the best of both worlds.

Best book/podcast/show you indulged in over summer?

I’ve almost finished ‘What Happened’ by Hillary Rodham Clinton. It was written the year after her election loss to Donald Trump and makes compelling reading.

Most interesting place that you have travelled to and where you would like to go next? 

My husband and I honeymooned on the Amalfi Coast. I loved southern Italian life, with the slower pace, warm evenings and family atmosphere. The gelato wasn’t bad either! I’ve heard similar things about Portugal so that’s next on my list.
