Which type of Apprenticeships do you offer?
Why did you choose to hire an apprentice?
We have decided to empower and upskill our existing employees, in order to support their further development in terms of both career and wider knowledge base.
Additionally, we are keen to support the development of future, local talent and so have hired an external apprentice.
What benefits has your company seen from hiring apprentices?
A deepened understanding of the areas of law we practice, and that we ask our Legal Assistants to support with. Additionally, our people know, and feel, that we are committed to their development and actively promote this.
What is the best piece of advice you would give to someone thinking about becoming or hiring an apprentice?
Just do it! Our apprenticeships have seen increased engagement, increased output, increased motivation, increased knowledge base, increased client service – what’s not to like!
Please tell us a positive story regarding apprenticeships that you can share?
Our apprentice has been with our firm for a number of years in a support role. During her apprenticeship, she has achieved outstanding results in every single module with special comments from her course leader(s). Feedback from our apprentice directly has been that she finally understands the “bigger picture” and feels that she can now add real value to the team and to our clients who she loves to work with.
