Kennedys is to recruit more apprentices to its Chelmsford, London, Manchester and Sheffield offices.
The five apprentices will start work in September 2014 and be sourced from this year’s school-leavers.
The apprentices will take the CILEx Level 3 Advanced Apprenticeship in Legal Services, designed to get them to paralegal level.
Kennedys HR manager Emma Phipps said: “The Level 3 apprenticeship has proved to be a fantastic vehicle for recruiting exceptional young talent straight from school. The young people who have joined us are eager and motivated, and we can already see that many are of the highest calibre.
