While getting jobs for law graduates on this side of the Atlantic is getting tougher every day, in U.K. law firms are responding to local campaigns to get jobs. Cartwright King, a leading city law firm of Nottingham, responded to the “Gett Notts Working” campaign and has recruited two teenagers Daniel Roper and Paul Morris. The extended ‘orientation’ of the teenagers would definitely be an asset to the firm if they remain loyal. The teenagers would be starting work at the law firm from next month.

Daniel Roper, 18, would begin a business and administration apprenticeship, while Paul Morris, 18, will work in Information Technology. Cartwright King joins a quickly growing group of white-collar firms taking on apprentices in U.K.

Daniel, who has finished his A-levels at the Redhill Academy, told the Nottingham Post, “I’ve looked at 30 to 40 apprenticeships since I turned 16, but when this came up I was delighted as I had an interest in law. It is going to allow me to learn on the job and get paid at the same time so it will be ideal.” He will start working from June 18.


Paul, who would be leaving Kimberley School in June, would be helping out on projects and responding to IT needs of the staff. Paul told the Nottingham Post, “I am really looking forward to getting started and being fully trained up …I’m so happy I’ve got this role, and hopefully a job at the end of the apprenticeship.

Rupert Hawke, the finance director of Cartwright King said, “We are growing all of the time and believe apprentices are a great way of bringing in new people as we can mould them to the standards we expect.

“Traditionally, apprenticeships are seen as beneficial to the construction firms, but we hope they will be equally useful in the office.”
