National Legal Service Solicitors is pleased to announce the appointment of two new Trainee Solicitors who will soon commence their 2 year training contracts.
Selected following a rigorous assessment process, the chosen two were among 8 internal applicants employed as Paralegals within our 19 branch offices.
Paul Scripps and Gurveet Kular, from our London and Birmingham offices, will provide legal advice and services to NLS’s clients across the country. NLS currently provides training seats within Family, Care, Crime and Extradition. We are now looking to develop secondment relationships with other firms which will enable us to provide an even wider variety of seats within other areas of law.
Kate Probert, Head of HR said:
We are delighted to appoint our second intake of Trainee Solicitors after what has been an exhaustive selection process. As a business, we choose to appoint Trainees from our existing team rather than recruiting externally. This allows us to reward the dedication and hard work of our staff and continually develop our teams. They are our Solicitors and Supervisors of the future. It is always disappointing for those who are not successful in their application but we now work to support them ready for the next round of applications later this year. I look forward to seeing all of our Trainees progress their careers with NLS.
Kirsty Richards, Training Principal & Head Of Family said:
It’s always a pleasure to reward hardworking and committed paralegals with the opportunity to further their legal career by becoming a Trainee Solicitor at NLS. Despite only being into a year of business, we have just awarded our 5th Training Contract and we are confident that will allow NLS to continue on it’s trajectory of growth and success. Well done to the successful applicants.
