    Hello

    I'm starting a Law degree in September and i'm looking for legal work experience. Someone suggested applying to become a citizens advice advisor. Was just wondering are there are students who do this job during the university holidays and what is it like?

    Rep will be given to the best answer.
    Thanks.

    Not sure it's a suitable position if you're only looking for work in the holidays - I applied and they said you have to commit minimum 6 months for training. xx

    An advisor is someone who already has the degree, you can't just apply to be one without any previous experience.

    You can volunteer with them though, but i don't think they'd let you do it through the holidays only. Its generally a six month minimum placement for the advisors because of the training you'l need to undertake.
