Top Marks For Apprentice Trio

We are celebrating the achievements of three rising stars, who have all completed apprenticeships and been offered permanent positions at Taylor&Emmet.

Each of the talented trio has gained an intermediate level apprenticeship in legal administration, certified by the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives (CILEx).

Following their qualification, Will Hagin, Olivia Middleton and Rachel Walker are taking up permanent administrative positions in our family law, personal injury and contentious probate departments respectively.

HR and training assistant, Louise Hazelwood, said: “We are very proud of Will, Olivia and Rachel, who all passed their level two apprenticeship with flying colours and have proved to be valuable members of our team. The legal administration course gives those embarking on a career in a solicitors’ firm a chance to put their work into context, combining practical experience with theoretical learning that can be structured around the individual.”

Rachel Walker has chosen to continue her studies and is commencing a level three CILEx course. We are also supporting four members of our conveyancing team through apprenticeships, which will see them gain higher level qualifications with both CILEx and the Council for Licensed Conveyancers (CLC). In addition, a further two employees are in the final stages of their education, which will qualify them as a chartered legal executive and licensed conveyancer.

Louise added: “We recognise the value of work-based learning and have supported the legal apprenticeship scheme since its inception six years ago. Nurturing young talent is essential if Taylor&Emmet is to continue to thrive and we welcome those who wish to enter the profession from all backgrounds and by all available routes.”

We are now recruiting for another two apprentices to join our business legal services and conveyancing teams, who wish to study for a CILEx level three qualification in business administration. Click here for more information about the roles available.
