We are very happy to welcome Lillie Withill as a full time member of the Murray Hills team.
Lillie began her Murray Hills journey as an apprentice at our Railway Street Beverley office working alongside the existing conveyancing team and has recently completed her apprenticeship to become a junior legal assistant with the practice.
“I chose Law as an occupation because I have always found the legal side of things interesting, it gives you a different perspective, for example, before working on conveyancing matters I thought that buying and selling a house was a fairly straightforward process, but since working in the legal sector have had my eyes opened to how complex it is.”
Apprenticeships are work based courses enabling the individual to learn and gain a qualification while also working for an employer gaining practical experience and skills in their chosen field. They are one of the many tools available to individuals looking to expand their knowledge and work towards a career.
“I chose to be an apprentice as I found that college just wasn’t for me, sitting in a classroom and taking exams was not the best format, I learn much better hands on so an apprenticeship made more sense for my development than attending university”
Murray Hills Solicitors are great champions of providing opportunities, encouraging our staff members to progress and creating careers. We believe that by effectively starting from the ground up, our staff members learn all there is to know about the profession. Every role in the firm is a vital one, from front of house to the Directors, we all work together to ensure the very best client care and service is provided. Through training, learning and guidance from peers we have created strong, dedicated, professional and knowledgeable teams that our clients know and trust. We do this in a variety of ways from apprenticeships to in house training from our dedicated training officer and providers. Lillie chose the route of apprentice as this fitted into her learning style and needs, but, as with all apprenticeships she could choose which law firm to work for.
“I chose Murray Hills because it is a very professional, well-known and recognised company for the fantastic services they provide, and I wanted to be a part of that and put my experience of customer service and conveyancing to use and develop upon it”
Once Lillie’s apprenticeship came to an end there were of course decisions to be made both by Murray Hills and Lillie herself. Murray Hills are very happy to say that Lillie decided to remain with the firm and join the team as a fully-fledged member, continuing her development with us and progressing to become a conveyancer in the future.
“I have chosen to stay at Murray Hills because I enjoy my job here. I have always preferred working but when I enjoy it, that’s what makes me love working. The firm is a very professional one and is full of fantastic colleagues. I feel a part of much more than a firm, it feels like a family.”
“In the future I aim to be able to become a conveyancer myself. I want to grow as a person and progress in my career. I am looking forward to being part of an amazing firm, with brilliant colleagues and support around me”
Keith Murray, managing Director added
“Lillie has an amazing personality bringing a smile to everyone’s face as well as a wonderfully grounded approach to learning and the potential to further her career and take on her own case load in the future. We are very happy that she is part of our team”
