Shoosmiths will launch CILEx Level 4 Higher Apprenticeships in its recoveries service department, meaning that some of the first apprentices to gain this new qualification will do so at the firm.
The top 50 firm is searching for apprentices to perform duties such as using case management systems to produce, store and diarise activities on each case; taking client instructions; and negotiating to achieve amicable settlements via written correspondence and over the phone. The apprentices will be based at Shoosmiths’ Northampton office.
The apprentices will receive external training from CILEx’s distance learning law school to gain their Level 4 Higher Apprenticeships in debt recovery and insolvency, equivalent to the first year of a degree, while Shoosmiths will provide in-housing training specific to the work of its recoveries service department.
Recoveries manager Lisa Keating explained that the firm was keen to use the legal services apprenticeship as an opportunity to nurture prospective legal advisors.
Jenny Pelling, Business Director for CILEx Law School said: “These apprenticeships are ideal opportunities for local school leavers, getting their A level results on 15 August, and wondering if they really want to incur the debt of going to university, when they have the chance to start learning and earning straight away.”
