Here at Scott Rees & Co we take on the brightest talent from around the North West and give them the opportunity to flourish in a thriving law firm and in the recent weeks we have welcomed two new trainee Paralegals to the firm, Wallace Berry and Stephen Postlethwaite.
In the current economic climate, cuts to the private sector has seen increased unemployment and forced small businesses and legal firms to close their doors to new opportunities.
Yet at Scott Rees & Co we have continued to thrive and expand the firm, despite the hard times that have fallen upon us and this has lead to many job openings and exciting new career opportunities.
One of those who is grasping a new opportunity, as a trainee paralegal, is Wallace Berry. Wallace, who is originally from Liverpool but now resides in Scarisbrick, joins the firm from Silverbeck Rymer.
She studied law at college and then went onto become a member of CILEX, where she is continuing her studies. She made the move to Scott Rees & Co after being impressed by the interview process and the clear route of progression which was being offered to her here. Wallace told us that she loves interacting with people, saying: “I like to build a good rapport with each client”. In her spare time she loves travelling to new and interesting places with her friends and family.
Also joining Scott Rees and Co as a trainee paralegal is Stephen Postlethwaite. Stephen currently lives in Ormskirk but is originally from Barrow-in-Furness and, like Wallace, also began his law studies at college. It was here that he ignited his desire to work within the legal profession and he went on to study an LLB Law Degree, for which he graduated for this year.
For Stephen, it was as he was nearing the end of his degree that he heard about the opportunity at Scott Rees and Co and decided to apply and he joins us fresh faced from completing his University studies
In his spare time, Stephen likes to go to the gym, visit his family in Cumbria on weekends and, like many people, he enjoys endulging in the wonderful world of Netflix.
Asked about his new role with the firm, Stephen said, “I have huge ambition for success and I believe that Scott Rees & Co is a great place to start my career”.
We wish our new starters all the best and hope they flourish at Scott Rees & Co and be part of an exciting future for the company. Wallace and Stephen are part of a wide array of new starters to have started the business since the turn of the year. The ability to continue expanding our team is a real positive for the company.
Managing partner, Royston Smith, welcomed our new recruits to their new positions at the firm, saying: “I am delighted to welcome Stephen and Wallace to Scott Rees & Co. We have always aimed to offer all of our staff the best opportunities for development and progression within the legal profession and we have a good track record of developing talent for the future as a result”.
“I would like to take this opportunity to wish them both the best of luck on their journey with us at Scott Rees & Co. I hope they benefit from all the support, guidance and opportunities they will receive here”.
