Hard work pays off for our Trainee Legal Executive.
We are delighted to announce Claire Wicks has passed her final Level 6 Exam through the Chartered Institute of Legal Executives. Claire originally from Launceston attended Launceston College and afterwards Cornwall College completing the CILEx Level 3 Diploma in Law and Practice. Claire began working full time at Parnalls in 2010 and steadily progressed through the company assisting in Conveyancing whilst studying with CILEx Law School as well as building up her caseloads working towards a Level 6 Professional Higher Diploma in Law and Practice. Claire said “Although working full time whilst studying in the evenings and weekends has been somewhat challenging, I feel that this was definitely the best route for me to take and having started off as Office Administrator and then moving up to an Assistant, I fully appreciate the hard work that goes into each of the roles. I have gained a wealth of experience since joining the firm which has benefitted me tremendously when sitting exams as I already had an insight as to how things work in the ‘real world’ rather than just learning from a text book. I would like to thank the firm for being supportive throughout and for providing me with the opportunity to progress”.
Commenting on Claire’s success, Director at Parnalls, Louis Mathers said “Claire’s commitment and dedication to hard work has paid off. We are very proud of her achievements and are delighted to support and develop local talent such as Claire”.
