Corey Else began his career as an apprentice at Fidler & Pepper Lawyers. So how has it been so far, and would he recommend apprenticeships for everyone?

I chose an apprenticeship over college because I knew I didn’t want to be stuck behind a desk for another two to four years. I wanted something more proactive where I could also be earning a wage. After finishing school, the idea of then going on to college just wasn’t something that interested me.

I originally wanted an apprenticeship in Business Admin but then I came across Fidler & Pepper, and even though I wasn’t looking for an apprenticeship in the legal sector, I fell on my feet as I now love what I do. The firm has a good local reputation so I was excited to be considered and then just had so many opportunities to learn and develop.

At Fidler & Pepper Lawyers you may start in office admin but can have the opportunity to work in Private Client, IT, Accounts, reception, or Conveyancing. In Conveyancing you could work in New Business, then transfer to support a team, then have your own caseload.

People think to do well in law you need a law degree but this isn’t the case and college/university isn’t for everyone so it’s great that you can work and learn and progress.

Fidler & Pepper is a very supportive firm, especially with their apprentices – ensuring that they receive the training and time to enable them to develop within their roles or move onto other roles.

We have one-to-one training, workshops, quizzes to support with training, group training sessions – all of which are equally important. Fidler & Pepper is a modern company that wants to grow its own staff and give people such great opportunities. We have flexi-time, fruit delivered, pizza days – in fact, it’s just a great place to work.

I worked in office admin as an apprentice and soon moved on to Post Completion – helping to set up a team. I then worked supporting teams learning all aspects of Conveyancing.  I then worked closely with a Fee Earner with my own caseload as an Assistant.

Since last December, I have had a caseload as a Trainee Fee Earner and am currently studying to become a Conveyancing Technician. Once qualified, in March, I will then go on to start my training to become a Licenced Conveyancer. My aim over time would be to be working with our biggest referrers and helping to develop our positive relationships with them.

I don’t know if an apprenticeship would suit everybody, but it has suited me. And I do know that if someone wants to progress well in their career, Fidler & Pepper genuinely provides a really good career path.
