We all know too well the phrase “work in progress”, the phrase we don’t hear often enough is work and progress.
Here is a little information about me, my career and the skills that I have used to develop my career. I started my career as a legal secretary for a solicitor who specialised in prison law/crime. I left to progress my career and started working for a boutique firm in south Manchester who specialised in personal injury and was promoted to PA to head of the EL/PL department. Alongside working full time and being a young mum, I started to study my law degree part time in the evenings, but found that this had a massive impact on my family life. I decided to quit studying in a hope that I would be able to study my law degree the CILEX route whilst I was working, however, this option never materialised for me.
In January 2014, I made a life changing decision to change my career path.
I joined BCL Legal on a temp basis in January 2014 as an administrator. Within 3 weeks I was offered a permanent position and promoted to a Team Assistant supporting the North West Private Practice team, thanks to my can do attitude. 18 months on and I have once again been promoted, this time to a Legal Recruitment Consultant placing legal professionals in the North West who specialise in the personal injury sector.
In my next blog, I will detail 5 skills that I focussed on in order to achieve this!
