Legal Apprentice, Horwich Farrelly

Nicola is following the apprenticeship route to build a legal career and hopes to become a qualified solicitor.

Working closely with top fee earners, Nicola is studying for her CILEx exams with a view to becoming a qualified solicitor. She really enjoys work-based training and learning new things.

Over the two-year course, apprentices spend time working in all parts of the business, making calls, assisting legal teams and dealing with clients. Towards the end of their apprenticeship they also start working on their own caseload.
