Kennedys ramps up apprentice recruitment

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.

This is the third year that Kennedys has recruited apprentices. It launched its scheme in September 2012, when it took on ten apprentices, and proceeded to employ another seven apprentices in 2013.

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.
