SUMMER is a time for growth and development at a leading law firm.
Mackenzie Jones Solicitors is recruiting staff after a busy start to the year, with vacancies for a litigation secretary, private client solicitor and secretary, having recently welcomed a new conveyancer, legal assistant, and graduate paralegal.
Several members of the team are also progressing with legal qualifications and working towards promotion at the firm – based in St Asaph, Menai Bridge and Chester – which again secured the Law Society’s Lexcel Accreditation for Excellence in Legal Practice Management and Client Care.
Among them is Wendy Tinkler, from Rhyl, currently studying for a Level 4 Diploma to qualify as a Conveyancing Technician.
Wendy joined the company in 2016 after many years in the hospitality industry and thanked Mackenzie Jones for inspiring her to reach the next level.
“I saw a role for a legal secretary and decided a change of career would be good for me, and from there my interest in the sector has grown and grown,” said Wendy, supported by partner Gareth, from Mold.
“Over the last seven years I’ve worked in conveyancing and more recently on the commercial side, but I see my future as a conveyancing technician.
“I’m studying online for a Level 4, then hope to move on to a Level 6 and go on to achieve that dream. I love the role I’m in but was keen to push myself and ultimately it will be beneficial for the business as well.”
She added: “The company has really backed me to do this, as they do with all the staff here; they want us to develop and progress, there is a culture of advocacy and encouragement and I’m so grateful for that.
“I’m looking forward to spending my time between St Asaph and Chester and helping the company as it continues to expand into the North West and North Wales.”
With a workforce approaching 30 people, and several of the team in the process of completing CPD (Continuing Professional Development) programmes, Director Anna Mills Morgan said they will continue to back employees keen to embrace personal and professional growth.
“Wendy and colleagues are working really hard to develop their skills and progress with us, which in turn makes Mackenzie Jones a stronger organisation,” she added.
“As demand for our services continues to rise, notably in conveyancing and the commercial arena, we hope to see even more of our team follow their lead and look to take the next step in their careers – we will certainly support them.”
