Meet Our Apprentice!

National Apprenticeship Week 2018

Meet our Apprentice!

Maisy Flynn joined Fishers last October as a Business and Administration Apprentice based at our office in Tamworth.

Maisy decided to follow the apprenticeship route in a Law Firm as she felt that this would give her the best opportunity to fulfil her potential. This is what she has to say about her Apprenticeship experience with us.

“One of the reasons I enjoy working at Fishers is that no two days are the same. I meet and greet clients, assist solicitors prepare court documents, do the banking, answer the phone and sort out day to day problems – the list is endless! I’ve also recently started to help with marketing tasks; I feel like a real member of the team.”

Maisy went on to say “I feel that there is a real opportunity for me here and I believe that I am at the start of an exciting career.  I could even be a fee earner or a solicitor one day. I would never have believed there was a chance for me to achieve this before I started this Apprenticeship.

HR Manager Laura Chadwick commented: “Apprenticeships can be a rewarding alternative to University and we are delighted to support Maisy on her career path, she’s a real asset to Fishers and we are looking forward to watching her develop and grow.”
