- Passionate about people
As practice manager I am responsible for ensuring that we have the people and resources to provide a high quality service to our clients. It’s important to us that we have the right people for our clients, so our recruitment process is thorough but fair and we offer development and training opportunities to keep skills and knowledge up-to-date. I also supervise a team of people who ensure the risk management, facilities, accounts, IT, marketing and archives of the firm support our team of solicitors.
Careers don’t just begin in the workplace though and I have established strong connections with local schools and universities, working closely with them to offer careers talks, interview practice, mentoring and work experience.
When I’m not in work
I believe in supporting the communities in which we work so cook once a month for a luncheon club for the elderly and also run a Brownie unit for Girlguiding in Marple.
My top tip:
Life is interesting when you embrace change.
