At Fidler & Pepper we focus on developing careers

We recruit, train and retain our staff as part of our ‘Grow Our Own’ people development strategy. Put simply, that means we like to recruit the very best staff and help them to grow and develop to meet their own career goals and to support our business goals. We have a structured development plan which allows members of our team to move up and across to other roles and this is supported by internal and external training and nationally recognised qualifications. We’re really pleased to say that we have a lot of staff that have joined us and are now progressing through the business.

We have a commitment to supporting apprenticeships

Over the years more than 30 of our staff have successfully completed apprenticeships gaining over 50 qualifications between them. Currently we have 8 apprentices across our business (Our wonderful apprentices are pictured above) working hard to support all of our departments.  Over the past couple of years we have had 4 apprentices who have been recognised as winners and finalists in various apprentice of the year awards. One of our current apprentices Lucy Cowe is a current finalist in both the CT Skills Made in the Midlands Apprentice of the Year award and the Mansfield and Ashfield 2020 Business awards. Fingers crossed for Lucy and thank you for your hard work!

We’re always on the look out for great people!

We offer a variety of roles from legal roles to business support roles and at Fidler & Pepper we aim to create a great place to work and provide training and development opportunities for our staff. Our staff development motto is Happy Staff = Happy clients as we know that happy staff provide a positive service to our clients, which makes clear business sense!

Apprenticeships, Careers    No Comments

Growing your own is fashionable nowadays and Fidler & Pepper being the trend-setters we are, have been doing it for years! OK, so we aren’t growing our own marrows, but we are growing our own people!

We’re planting little seeds of knowledge in our staff and nurturing them into a bumper crop of Conveyancers, Private Client Specialists and support staff.

We have always seen the importance of training and developing the staff we have rather than looking elsewhere and we think that growing our own has produced the best batch of employees we could ask for.

It’s a win-win as well as we’re offering not just jobs, but the chance for a lifelong career, with career paths that can lead in various directions based on the abilities and interests of our staff.  Some of our employees have started out as apprentices and gone on to train as fully qualified lawyers!

We’re really pleased that our people growing has been recognised over the years and in recent years two of our apprentices Amber and Sian have won apprentice of the year awards. Recently our Sophie Wise was a finalist in the Chambers of Commerce awards and the NMSY Apprentice awards and Phoebe Killeen was a finalist in the Chad Business awards.

As a firm we’re also very proud winners of the Chad Business Awards in the People Development category, which recognises our commitment to training and developing our staff. This follows our Gold award from Youth Employment UK for our focus on being a youth friendly employer!

We’re always on the look out for a few good seeds to sprout for the next people harvest so if you’re interested in a career with Fidler and Pepper (and don’t mind our terrible gardening puns) check out our website for vacancies and more information. If you’d like to talk to us, simply call 01623 45 11 11.
