After completing my A-Levels, I went down the degree-level apprenticeship route. I joined BLM as a Trainee Paralegal whilst studying with BBP Law school to complete a level 4 in Legal practice in 2017. I completed the apprenticeship in 2019 becoming a full-time Paralegal. From then on, I worked in various city Commercial Insurance law firms in Manchester city centre doing fee earning and research work. With this experience, I was able to confidently move on to being a Legal Personal Assistant for partners and associates.
I chose a non-traditional route which allowed me to gain work experience in the field, learn valuable lessons and build my confidence.
Making the move to recruitment was an easy choice for me, being able to use my love for law, organisation and helping people, in my day-to-day job seemed like a dream come true.
How would you describe yourself in 3 words?
I would say funny, caring and energetic.
What made you decide to join Realm?
I've always wanted to be a part of a vibrant and talented team and that is exactly what Realm is. I love the ethos Realm has when it comes to work and the wellbeing of its staff. You can feel through the people and processes that this is a place to grow, laugh and learn. This newness and innovation is what I crave from the company I work for.
How do you unwind after a busy day at the office?
I will normally get home, prepare dinner, and sit and watch one of my favourite comfort shows for an hour. After that, I typically get a workout in and prepare for the next working day before getting stuck into some ice cream and continuing with a funny show or a stand-up.
