Victoria G - Trainee Paralegal
Name: Victoria G
Joined the company: May 2011
Starting position: FRT assistant
Current position: Trainee Paralegal and studying CILEx
What support have you received to help you develop through the company?
Since working in the company I have been given a lot of support in developing into my current role. I was given the opportunity to move from FRT and work in a fee earning team and since then I have been progressing. I was working in RTA but have since moved over to EL/PL. When I took the move over I undertook a Legal Assistant development plan and once this was completed I undertook one to become a Paralegal. I am now waiting for a suitable vacancy to arise within the EL/PL department.
I am also currently studying for Ilex which is supported by 2020 Legal and there is a training agreement in place to support this and demonstrates my commitment back to 2020 Legal. My manager is assisting me on a regular basis with anything I need in terms of technical support and I also get a lot of support from other staff members that are enrolled on Ilex.
I will be qualified next year as a Legal Executive and then just need to undertake my 1 years post qualification before hopefully working in this role. I am hoping that before I qualify that I will have developed further within the company so that the transition between the roles goes smoothly.
What do you like most about working for 2020 Legal?
I like working for 2020 Legal because of the level of support I get from management. I feel that there is no cap on how far I wish to progress.
