Joanna Hughes Solicitor Apprenticeships
Joanna’s work as a champion of solicitor apprenticeships was recognised in the 2023 Department for Education National Apprenticeship Awards; she offers something unique because she is entirely focused on solicitor apprenticeships, informed by her 25-year legal career at a large international law firm, her work launching solicitor apprenticeships there, and a deep knowledge of socio-economic diversity in law. Her commitment to both apprenticeships and social mobility is recognised by her appointment as a judge in the Multicultural Apprenticeship Awards and the UK Social Mobility Awards.
Joanna offers three core services:
- solicitor apprenticeship set-up
- solicitor apprenticeship mentoring
- solicitor apprenticeship networking
You no doubt already have excellent Graduate Recruitment and Early Talent teams, but the attraction and recruitment of solicitor apprentices, and pastoral care post offer requires a different approach. Joanna can help you with this. From her professional and volunteer work, Joanna is aware that mentoring and networking will have an increasing focus in the City in the months and years to come, and so mentoring and networking are offered as core services in addition to solicitor apprenticeship programme set-up.
Joanna’s services and this website are intended for law firms and in-house legal counsel, not aspiring solicitor apprentices. There are many fantastic resources for students out there already!
