Four paralegals are taking the next step in their careers with award-winning law firm Jackson Lees Group, following a competitive round of internal interviews.
Emily Burns, Chelsea Kearns, Katie Tunstall, and Hetal Hathiwala have started their 18 month training contracts as Trainee Solicitors with the firm. The training programme will see the group work across a number of practice areas, gaining valuable experience and insight prior to choosing an area of specialism.
The firm is committed to developing and growing its team at all levels and has a well-established internal training academy and mentoring programme in place. Testament to the firm’s commitment to development, four current trainee solicitors are also due to complete their training contracts in December and become qualified solicitors within the firm.
Brian Cullen, CEO of the Jackson Lees Group, said: “At Jackson Lees Group, we’re proud to offer young talent the opportunity to develop into brilliant lawyers. Congratulations to all those who were successful this time around. It’s wonderful to see the next generation of trainees growing and developing. We actively pursue a strategy of promoting and training from within and I am so proud of the calibre of applications we received for these training positions – it was an incredibly competitive process.
“As a firm that actively promotes diversity, it’s particularly encouraging to welcome these four talented young women on board and we look forward to seeing them develop their careers with us and grow into the legal leaders of the future.”
