Commercial Property Solicitor

Portrait of a smiling young lady, assumed to be Georgia.


I have worked in the Legal Services department at Stockport Council since leaving university almost 4 years ago. During this time, I have been given the opportunities and support to progress from a junior role within the team through to qualifying as a Solicitor.

Working at a local authority means that our local residents are ultimately at the heart of everything we do and it is a great feeling when you can see the difference your work is contributing towards across the borough.

When I was training to become a Solicitor, I was able to work in several of the different sub-teams within Legal. This gave me an invaluable insight into each of those different areas of law and the opportunity to decide what type of work I wanted my career to consist of. Following my training, I was then employed as a Commercial Property Solicitor and although my official training period is over, I am still very much encouraged to develop my skills and experiences both as a lawyer but also as a young professional more generally.

The nature of the work means that as well as progressing in your own profession and working within your own team, you are able to collaborate with different teams across the organisation. This, along with the variety of work I am exposed to, means that no 2 days are the same.
