Steeles Law invests in local young talent
Steeles Law has announced the appointment of its first apprentice, together with the promotion of a former office junior to a trainee legal role.
Georgina Harris, who recently completed her A Levels at East Norfolk Sixth Form College, has joined Steeles as Marketing Apprentice, supporting the firm’s marketing and business development function. Georgina will complete her apprenticeship with training support from Norwich City College.
Alison Beales joined Steeles Law’s central administrative team in 2012, having previously studied for her A Levels, including Law, at Wymondham College. Alison has been promoted to the role of Paralegal in Steeles Law’s conveyancing team and is looking forward to undertaking further training in the law.
Stephen Drake, Managing Director at Steeles Law, commented: "At Steeles, we have a long history of encouraging staff from non-traditional backgrounds into the legal profession. For example, Denise Traube, a Chartered Legal Executive in our dispute resolution team, was recently named Newly Qualified Lawyer of the Year in the Norfolk & Norwich Law Society’s Excellence Awards. Denise joined us in 2002 in a junior administrative role and has steadily risen through the ranks, whilst undertaking her legal studies. I am confident that Alison and other candidates alike will follow in her footsteps."
Stephen added: "We are delighted to welcome Georgina as our first apprentice, supporting our busy and growing marketing and business development team. We are committed to supporting more young people looking to enter the legal and other business professions through this increasingly popular route."
