A leading Midlands law firm is giving three young people the opportunity to take their first steps into a career in the legal profession, with a trio of apprenticeship appointments.
Daniel Johns, 18 from Sutton Coldfield, is on a six-year apprenticeship scheme to become a solicitor. He will be working within the Family team in the Wolverhampton office, under partner Claire Darley.
The Private Client team also based in Wolverhampton, will be taking on apprentice paralegal Ayman Idrees, 22 from Birmingham. Ayman will complete her two-year course, while working closely with partner Michelle Monnes-Thomas.
Noah Lloyd, 18 from Shropshire, will be based at the Shrewsbury branch. Working alongside partner Tom Devey in the Private Client team, Noah will be studying to become a solicitor.
FBC Manby Bowdler Managing Director Neil Lloyd said: “We are delighted to welcome our three new apprentices to the firm and hope they will enjoy their studies and experiences of working as part of our team.
“We’ve been offering apprenticeships through our company scheme for five years now and it’s helped us provide access and opportunities to lots of bright and talented young people who may not otherwise have considered a legal career, as the traditional route – through university – wasn’t for them.
“It’s a win-win situation. We provide a well-rounded introduction to the legal profession for our apprentices and support their studies, and in return, we are able to nurture and develop a stream of future lawyers and paralegals who will enhance our firm as they grow.”
