Having almost reached the halfway mark of my one year apprenticeship, I continue to engage in a number of varied tasks. As well as the usual admin tasks, I have also been carrying out tasks such as researching for partners and preparing bill packs for clients. Whilst I am thoroughly enjoying working within legal admin, my experience at Withers has enhanced my interest in law and amplified my wish to begin my journey in a legal role.

I have been an apprentice with GMP for six months now. This month, I have been given the opportunity to attend a suicide prevention course at Sedgley Park. This was a very rare opportunity so I’m lucky to have been offered the chance to attend.

During the last few weeks, I have been engaging in the usual admin tasks such as scanning documents into client workspaces, archiving files and assisting with letters to clients.
