Cartwright King rolls out apprenticeships

Cartwright King has launched an apprenticeship scheme in business and administration, and IT.

The midlands law firm’s Nottingham office has taken on two 18 year olds to complete a one-year apprenticeship. Daniel Roper is starting in business and administration, while Paul Morris has chosen IT.

Finance director Rupert Hawke said: “It is important that we invest in young people who can bring a variety of skills to our firm and help us to function more efficiently and effectively.

“Apprenticeships provide the perfect framework for the training that such young people require to equip them with the appropriate skills and experience to meet these needs.”

The firm has offices in Leicester, Derby, Sheffield, Birmingham and Tyneside, and specialises in criminal defence, business defence, motoring defence, immigration, mental health and family law.

“I’m so happy I’ve got this role and hopefully a job at the end of the apprenticeship,” added Morris.  “I am really looking forward to getting started and being fully trained up.”
