Blacks Solicitors has invested further in the region’s young legal talent with the addition of three new apprentices, taking the total up to six.
The six year long scheme commences each year in September and sees apprentices gain hands-on experience in various teams across the firm, whilst continuing with their academic studies.
The new recruits are Katelyn Walker, Chloe Stevens, and Luke Ellis, who’ve brought the total number of apprentices at Blacks Solicitors to six. Apprentices already employed by the firm are Beth Brindley, Annie-May Dyson, and Rosie Rudolph.
The group of six are gaining experience in a range of teams across the firm including Wills & Probate, Employment, and Commercial Property.
Tom Moyes, training partner at Blacks, said: “We’re delighted to welcome Luke, Katelyn and Chloe to the apprenticeship scheme, which offers a genuine alternative route for students wishing to qualify as a solicitor.
“Their recruitment demonstrates our continued commitment to investing in legal talent, and growth of the firm. They join a fantastic team and we’re looking forward to having them on board.”
Blacks offers the Level Seven Apprenticeship Scheme which gives individuals the opportunity to become a qualified solicitor without incurring the costs associated with going to university full time.
