“After leaving school I wanted to get straight into the workplace but also wanted to further my qualifications and decided the best way to do this would be with an apprenticeship. My apprenticeship has given me the opportunity to learn from experienced professionals and has helped me to develop my knowledge, confidence and skills. Encouragement and support has been provided throughout which has been very reassuring and I think that taking an apprenticeship has been thoroughly beneficial.”
We offer a flexible career path to becoming a solicitor, taking into account any qualifications you already have. You could also do an apprenticeship in finance or admin, benefiting from a supportive environment.

“I began my apprenticeship 6 months ago, and within this time frame I have grown and progressed significantly in my role. I have had the opportunity to work alongside a number of different legal teams, which has given me the chance to gain an insight into the different areas of law we have here at Freeths and find the area most suitable to me!”
