My Route to Ellis Jones

I successfully completed my law degree at the University of the West of England before taking a break from studying to go travelling throughout Asia and Australia. Upon my return I enrolled on the Legal Practice Course at Bournemouth University, where I studied whilst working in a Lettings Agency. After completing the LPC in 2010 I continued to work in the Lettings Industry where I progressed up through the company whilst still searching for a legal position and in September 2015 I joined Ellis Jones as a Secretary.
