News And Events09/06/2017

Keoghs is once again partnering with specialist apprenticeship provider, Damar Training, to offer aspiring young people an alternative route into the legal profession.

The firm, headquartered in Bolton, has announced eight apprenticeships are up for grabs this year as part of its ongoing commitment to boosting local careers for those interested in law.

The placements are for Level 3 Paralegals and will run for two years, helping those selected to develop the necessary knowledge and skills whilst providing support in one of Keoghs’ practice areas.

This exciting opportunity will also offer apprentices external training and support leading to Level 3 Chartered Institute Legal Executives (CILEx) qualifications as well as putting their skills into practice with a portfolio of work which will be externally marked.

For those interested in applying, the deadline is 12th July with assessment centres to follow.

Keoghs Resourcing Business Partner, Liza Hill, commented on the government-backed scheme, saying;

“Talented individuals can sometimes overlook a career in law, given the often prohibitive costs involved with gaining the necessary qualifications. We are delighted with the success of our award-winning scheme, and 2016’s apprentices are already proving how important this programme can be for both Keoghs and the local community over the coming years.”

“What makes Keoghs different is our people and we’re proud of our ability to develop this large and vibrant workforce in a variety of business practice areas. In fact over 20% of our employees in entry level roles were promoted in 2015/2016.”
